Kim Geldenhuys

Born in Cape Town, South Africa, Kim Geldenhuys began directing in 1995 after many years as a successful fashion photographer. He quickly developed a reputation for truly conceptual work and strong graphic imagery.

In 2010, his spot “Selinah” received a Gold Lion at Cannes. ‘Selinah’ went on to win South Africa’s first Grand LIA at the London International Advertising Awards, as well as numerous other international gongs, making it the most awarded commercial to come out of South Africa in 2010.

WORK:
Prudential
"The Fishermen"
Life for the fishermen of Madagascar looks so tough in this remarkably beautiful South African commercial for Prudential that this could almost be a recruitment video for Somali pirates. But, in fact, it's an homage to the family values of those who risk their lives everyday for to catch the fish that sustains their community.
