About Justin

I’m a maverick South African filmmaker with a niche for writing and directing character-driven action thrillers. My films are intense, visceral and gritty; drawing inspiration from a wide range of relevant issues - from the fight against animal poaching, and the trafficking in human body parts, to the use of Private Military Contractors and child soldiers in Africa's mineral-rich countries.

My debut feature film is Night Drive. Current feature projects include Making A Killing and Shadow Boxer.
