Scholars & Gentlemen

Scholars had the great pleasure of producing a series of pieces for international shoe brand BATA, through local agency Ogilvy and Mather, all from the comfort of our home city.

The most rewarding challenge on Teener was shooting local cast and locations that could double for almost anywhere in the world. We were forced to re-examine Durban through an international lense and in the process discovered new locations and textures that we all fell in love with.

Toughees was the opposite: a proudly South African brand that everyone on set had grown up with.  We sourced a local dance crew from the Bluff and set their dance off in one of our dream Durban locations: a hidden boxing gym above Warwick Junction.
