With this experience came a hunger for adventure within the film production world. So in 2001, when I hit JHB’s golden streets, I registered at what was then known as RAU, to study a Bachelor’s Degree in Audio-Visual Production Management. In my third year, I got the opportunity to dive right into television production when I was offered a position at Franz Marx Films – EGOLI.” says Melita.
