About David

I am a South African film director and screenwriter and also one of the founders of my own production company, Dust Cloud Productions. I was formerly a Commissioning Editor at one of South Africa’s top book publishers, Penguin Books, where I project managed a number of important book projects, working with world-renowned authors and organisations.

Since embarking on a new career path in 2010, I have completed a degree (cum laude) in Motion Picture Medium, specialising in Directing and Screenwriting.

I am currently in pre-production on my debut feature film, which I wrote and will be directing.
