Hello my name is Rowen Smith. I am an Afrikaans & English South African Screenwriter, Film & TV Director, photographer and Independent video producer.
In 2013, I graduated with an Honors Degree in Motion Picture Medium at AFDA in Cape Town, majoring in screenwriting and Film Directing.
In 2014, I co-directed “The Shores Season 2”, a 13 x 24 minute Scripted-Reality TV drama in Cape Town South Africa and soon after I founded Cignalhill.com, a digital video company. I then moved onto writing pitches, developing feature films and ventured into International
co-production & film financing.
January 2016 was a great month for me as a writer, having completed my first ” English-Indie” Romantic comedy feature screenplay and I then pursued my career as a South African Producer, Media Delegate and Screenwriting judge.
Over the years the video projects I’ve produced have screened at 14 International Film Festivals world wide namely;
During my career as a filmmaker I’ve learned to thrive on the minimum and focus on the maximum. For the most part, I shoot stills photography to improve my skills in capturing memories, feeling & emotion, while I work on various projects at different stages of development.
