They Shoot Films’ Biography

Alan Irvin (Represented Outside SA)

A natural story-teller with a penchant for relating to “the real”, and so, a creator of real performances – even amongst non-actors. His long background in advertising, allows him to sharpen concepts, and his quirky, off – beat and yet still sensitive way of engaging with the world, allows him to depict the human condition in a fresh, humorous way.

David Prior (Represented Outside SA)

David lives in Cape Town, brews rum, beer and photographs things beautifully. He is one of the most awarded photographers in South Africa, and is recognized globally. He has spent years studying a bottle of ice cold beer, and food and beverages, and has become an authority in the art of capturing life’s small pleasures.

Grant de Souza (Represented Outside US, UK and SA)

Grant is one of those true film nuts. He has watched everything, often more than once. This gives him a broad cinematic knowledge to draw from, shaping scripts and performance in beautifully creative ways.
