A little bit Sleazy, a little bit Mellow, JT stays true to Ballantine’s.

Agency: Rapt Creative


There are some projects that are just made to be. People and brands that are perfect for each other. Which is how, as a continuation of their worldwide Stay True Cities campaign, Ballantine’s called on Spitfire Film Director, Sound Designer and Music Producer JT to create their latest documentary showcasing two of Pitori’s hottest DJs.

Sons of Soshunguve and Ga-Rankuwa, Mellow and Sleazy found each other through their love of Bacardi and Amapiano and they haven’t looked back since. While JT’s love of merging music, visuals and sound design to tell stories with a striking/gritty/vibrant style really shines through in this five minute mini-documentary for Ballantine’s and #staytruecities.

Living the work is what comes naturally to JT, whatever the project. You could say that working with extremely talented people and brave clients is music to his ears. Take a look for yourself. And then contact us to see – and hear – what JT can do for you.
