Andrew Molcolm King : After a decade of participating in countless multi-day ultra-endurance events and expeditions, Andrew King left a promising engineering career to pursue a life in adventure sports film production, always with the aim to communicate and share people’s stories and the personal gains that come from these endeavors. In the subsequent eight years, his production company grew to be one of the biggest contributors of independent content to South Africa’s SuperSport channel, reaching over seven million homes through Africa and the Middle East. Choosing to leave the world of broadcast television behind, Andrew has evolved his style towards cinematic documentary and short format storytelling. Working either on his own projects or as a director, producer or freelance cameraman for various production houses, Andrew’s unique skill set has taken him to many high mountains, remote valleys and rivers, filming in all-weather condition in 43 countries around the world. His unique combination of project management, logistics and travel experience along with his physical abilities and insight into the minds of endurance athletes make Andrew well suited to filling multiple roles in small, dynamic teams that need to create quality, compelling content whilst keeping up with the action.
