NERD PRODUCTIONS SIGN BRETT DE VOS
4 December 2018

NERD Productions have completed the signing of filmmaker Brett De Vos for representation.

Since he first swapped his native South Africa for Europe, De Vos has established himself on the commercial circuit with his incisive yet easy-going directing style and a knack for tapping the social zeitgeist.



Described by NERD founder and executive producer Milana Karaica as "a champion of socially responsible values", De Vos is constantly looking for projects that reflect issues such as body image, social mobility, and diversity."

For instance, his 2017 film for Uber South Africa offers a driver's eye view of Cape Town as the city's varied population describe what makes them tick. As De Vos puts his cast at ease, their contributions enhance the already striking urban photography.



Such work led Milana Karaica to say: "We are truly excited to work and create with talent that share NERD's vision and passion for crafting work that has a positive impact on our audiences and people across the world… we could not be more thrilled to have Brett join NERD Productions."

For more on Brett de Vos and NERD's growing roster, ring Milana Karaica on 07792 464 333 or email her via milana@nerd.productions.
