ABOUT US

Motion Story is a Johannesburg-based film and television studio responsible for creating the world’s first mainstream African superhero TV series, Jongo. Following the international success of the limited series, Motion Story developed, produced, filmed and post-produced a new 8-part action-drama TV show, Shadow. 

THE TEAM

With an aim to disrupt the film industry in South Africa, Nick Keulemans, Fred Wolmarans, Phillip Wolmarans and Gareth Crocker teamed up to bring these story-driven TV series to life. From development to distribution, every task in the production was either overseen or fulfilled by a member of this team.

Gareth Crocker is an international best-selling author and screenwriter. His seven novels have sold more than a million copies worldwide. Two of Gareth’s novels are being adapted into films in Hollywood. Gareth has written several screenplays and teleplays including Jongo, Shadow, the feature-thriller Taken and the upcoming war film, Finding Jack.

Phillip Wolmarans has worked extensively with major corporate organisations over the past 15 years. He has a wealth of experience in business, strategic development, finance and in managing creatives. Phillip has a deep understanding and passion for every part of film production and manages all production for the studio.

Fred Wolmarans has directed and edited multiple corporate videos, commercials, feature films and TV series over the past 14 years in more than 20 countries around the world. He has a passion for conceptualising and executing complex action sequences and an excellent sense of pace and timing in the editing room.

Nick Keulemans is the director of photography and head of visual effects at Motion Story. He has lensed multiple corporate videos, commercials, feature films and TV series over the past 14 years in more than 20 countries around the world. With a fine artist’s eye for detail and the technical knowledge of a visual effects engineer, Nick’s passion for his work elevates every Motion Story production to international-level quality.
