Frank’s Hat

Frank’s Hat was an idea born months ago. What if a man fell madly in love with his hat, so much so that they would spend every moment together? We then took it one step further, what if Frank’s hat cheats?

This is our most diverse Srizzil video to date, covering many different locations and shot over a few weeks. It’s mind blowing to think that just one and a half minutes of video can take days to film.

Due to difficulties in using an actual shopping centre we had to create our own shop for Frank to meet his hat. This turned out to be a blessing as it allowed us to create our own space. Look out for small things that symbolise different aspects of Srizzil and myself (Marc Williams) scattered around the shop.

I’d like to thank Wimpy, Nu Metro and HCF for allowing us to film at their venues and for being so accommodating. Most importantly, however, I’d like to thank Mandy Rothquel – a new addition to the Srizzil team, who was instrumental throughout the entire process. Welcome to the team.

Comment, subscribe, like, but most importantly watch. We love feedback, you guys rock.

You’re questions answered

How did you film the last shot?

Normally the correct method to film the shot would be to move the camera in one direction and zoom in the opposite at the same speed. Unfortunately, because we currently don’t have access to a trolley system we had to use the cruder method of getting the main character to do the moving instead of the camera.

Are you study film in South Africa?

Although I am in South Africa, I can’t afford to go to film school. It would be a dream to study film in Los Angeles. Instead of waiting for something to happen to me and falling behind actual film students, I’ve been teaching myself.

Marc Williams

Some say I'm the most handsome man in the world (my mom), others tend to disagree, but one thing is certain - I love to entertain. Whether it be through music, writing, or film, seeing people respond with a smile is worth more than a bag of gold. Figuratively obviously, because smiles are free and gold is very expensive.
