iBalaclava tells the tale of two brothers living in the Cape Town township of Dunoon whose differing views will ultimately lead them down the same path of desperation, loss and redemption.

Thread

Stone Cold Jane Austen

The untold story of one of the greatest bands that ever lived, who inspired a revolution, yet failed to break through to the mainstream. Obviously a comedy ;)


Orchestration and Part Preparation

Adventures in Zambezia

The third animated feature to be produced in South Africa, and the first by animation company Triggerfish, Adventures in Zambezia is the story of Kai, a naive, but high-spirited young falcon who travels to the bird city of "Zambezia" where he discovers the truth about his origins and, in defending the city, learns how to be part of the community.

Khumba

Triggerfish’s second animated feature film Khumba is about a young zebra who is born with only half his stripes, and tells the story of his journey to earn his stripes as he treks across the plains of the great Karoo desert in Southern Africa. The score was recorded entirely in the Endler Hall at the University of Stellenbosch, performed by the Stellenbosch Symphony Orchestra which was conducted by Peter Martens.
