Using trademark Muppets and unique African characters, Sesame Street has captured the imagination of South African children with entertaining, engaging and age appropriate stories.
My passion for this show started with the inception of ‘Sesame Street South Africa’ where I had the opportunity of directing the live action films. My favourite film was the story of Koli, a little girl who collected, dried and ate Mopani Worms, considered a delicacy in rural South Africa. In season 4 and 5, I spearheaded the creative process, from script to delivery. In season 6 and 7, I oversaw a ‘show make-over’ and the transition from a 360° ‘real’ set to a virtual set, including the development of a new title sequence with the talented guys at Cool your Jets.
