In with the Loeries


Two spots edited by Johannesburg-based Aces Up Post Production were honoured at the recent Loerie Awards in Cape Town.

A Campaign Silver Loerie was awarded to The Walking Dead – Loved Ones Lost, edited by Zama Jolobe, in the Television, Film and Video Communication: TV, Trailers, Channel & Station Promos category.

Says Aces Up MD Liesl Lategan: “It was a great experience to work with a director like Jason Fialkov and a production company like Egg. Ireland Davenport was the agency behind the idea. It just shows that when you combine the perfect degree of talent, the chemistry takes over and results in a winner.’

The same can be said for Lucian Barnard who edited Save The Rhino, which won a Bronze Loerie in the Television, Film and Video Communication: Internet & Mobile Commercials category.

“Lucian was so excited that the spot was recognised by the Loeries because in his words it was “anti-editing’,’ continues Lategan. “He had the privilege of working with 7 Films and former great editor Gordon Midgley, who directed the spot. Lowe Bull was the agency responsible for the concept.’

Lategan notes that this is not the first award Barnard has won with 7 Films – he won the SA’s next Top Editor competition for a spot that was directed by Wednesday.
