Tristan doesn’t fare well to the idealised image of a rock star director, especially since he happens to be one.
He happens to be one of the only South African directors to have won a little gold Oscar. Tristan is a fiercely hardworking director that applies every part of himself to every image he creates. There is sweat, there is blood, there is [producer’s] tears, there is passion, there is ultimate craft. This is a director who gives his all, that makes you give your all, all for love of making films.
