Reel Epics produced Sonke’s 10 Year Anniversary video in 2017. It was a huge production – combining archival with newly-shot footage to cover the growth of a complex organisation, which works on a variety of social justice issues in South Africa and the region. The Reel Epics team are highly skilled in their craft – from planning to interviewing, shooting and editing the video, their work was always creative and supremely professional.
