ANDILE “JUST ANDY” MALINDI
“FOR ME, THE CAMERA IS A SKETCHBOOK, AN INSTRUMENT OF INTUITION AND SPONTANEITY”
I’m a young creative with a diploma in Photography and degree in Multimedia, from the Vaal University of Technology, as well as a great passion for all things related to the camera.
I share the famous words of Henri Cartier-Bresson when he said: “For me, the camera is a sketchbook, an instrument of intuition and spontaneity”. With these words I stand to believe that, I try to involve in the movie, the documentary, or just even a simple photograph, time, space, frame-of-mind and a lot of other things which are a part of my life but not connecting directly to what is being captured, but in the end still be able to tell the story.
With a desire to excel in the film industry, I yearn to be recognized as an individual who specialises in the camera department and does whatever it takes to one day be the best DOP.
While gaining experience, I intend to strengthen my existing knowledge and learn first-hand about other key functions and roles within the industry. Although I foresee no possibility of venturing into other departments, for the obvious reason that I love camera work, my goal is to explore my prurient and noble interests, my fascinations, my style and signature, and allow that to show in my work.
I want for people to talk about the conundrum that is me, a female filmmaker whose work is counted amongst the greats. That is my ultimate goal.
