Arcade Content’s Kyle Lewis has just completed his first campaign for Volkswagen and Ogilvy Cape Town, with two typically bold brand films perfectly matched to the Volkswagen Up’s positioning as “the bold car that takes you places.”

These colourful brand films showcase a warmer side to Kyle, who’s made his name with intense music videos for the likes of Cassper Nyovest, Riky Rick, Khuli Chana and Tumi. Following on from his recent work with Native VML for Absolut and The Loeries, these striking spots are further evidence that Kyle’s knack for distinctive, memorable music videos translates seamlessly into distinctive, memorable brand work.

Kyle is the only South African director to have been featured twice on leading international trade Shots this year, and the only one to have been selected as a HotShot. He’s currently nominated for a SAMA for best music video for the third year in a row, having already won once. His music videos have millions of views on YouTube. And he’s still in his twenties…
