One of Urban Brew Studio’s drama directors, Herbert Hadebe, has been selected as
an international Emmy Awards juror. Hadebe travelled to New York City this week
and will be judging the “Best Performance by an Actor in a TV Drama’ as part of the
prestigious television awards.
With over 15 years’ experience in the film and television industry, Hadebe currently
works on two drama series for Urban Brew Studios, Mzansi Magic’s
Zabalaza and e.tv’s Gold Diggers. He was nominated as
an Emmy juror by the National Film and Video Foundation (NFVF), which as a
partner and member of the international Emmy Awards enables the South African
film and television industry to participate in the judging.
Hadebe is honoured at being given this opportunity, “I’m so looking forward to being
exposed to the so-called “anchor’ of film and television in the world. In my role as
juror I will be looking for an actor who is able to connect and effortlessly
manipulate the viewer’s emotions.’
Hadebe says he’s passionate about storytelling in the film and television industry
and his ultimate goal is to help create employment and sustainable innovations.
