Masters & Savant Showcases South Africa’s Production Talent

Award-winning multi-disciplinary production company based in Johannesburg and Cape Town, and with a U.S. affiliate office in Chicago, launches a new website showcasing its strong collection of motion graphics, animation and visual effects artistry.

CHICAGO – Masters & Savant, the South African based production company, has launched their new website that showcases the exceptionally strong collection of creative talent now represented under their roof.

“We are all about getting that deep emotional response from viewers, delivering content that engages on the most personal level. We want people to be moved by what they see, to have such a deep emotional response to what is presented to them that they immediately begin developing a connection with the brand,” commented Roger Smythe, a managing director and co-founder of Masters & Savant. 

Since the business’ inception in 2002, their work has remixed and reworked design, animation, illustration, live action, visual effects, and digital into striking new forms and applications. Brands across the globe have chosen Masters & Savant to assist in developing their visual production content, most notably in the USA, Canada, throughout Europe, Thailand, China, Singapore, Australia, and of course, their home in South Africa.

Now represented under the Masters & Savant banner is a collection of specialists in various forms of communication arts, who have worked for such brands as United Airlines, Mini Cooper, Minute Maid Juice, VW, Ford, and Adidas.

“Today, our purpose is to create the industry’s most moving work,” continued Smythe. “We work exclusively with the most exceptional talent from across the communication arts, including animators, designers, directors, developers, fine artists, illustrators, photographers, motion graphics artists, storytellers, typographers, and visual effects artists. We support our creatives with world-class technical expertise and rock solid infrastructure.”

“All of this translates into a service offering for brands and agencies that is very hard to beat elsewhere - a collection of the top creative talent, a universal language in which to do business, a geographical position that allows for brand and agencies globally to take advantage of time differences, a currency that is rooted in a solid economy and allows for more work to be done for the budgets at hand, and a team with long-standing experience in visual production project management on an international level.”

“I’m excited to be introducing the US to the incredible talent that Masters & Savant has amassed. I have had a long standing relationship with them and have witnessed firsthand their poise and efficiency as a production company. And with the addition of such top talent, I believe they are set to make a big impact,” said Liz Shaw, founder of Liz Laine Reps, Inc., Masters & Savant’s representative in the US.

“The result is work that moves; moves our clients, moves their brands, and moves the audiences that our clients want to engage with,” concluded Smythe.
