When it comes to telling stories the silver screen and small screen are fascinating mediums. From developing characters who are believable, complex and able to evolve as well as to create a world viewers can get lost in and a story will be fantasised about for years to come, that is the dream.


Vrou Soek Boer is an Afrikaans romantic comedy about a successful city girl, Mareike, in search of genuine happiness. After inheriting a bakery in Wakkerstroom, she decides it's time for a change and moves to the platteland. Together with Maynard Kraak, the producer and director, I developed the story, created and developed the characters, and wrote the script.
