Thabang Kagiso Moleya  Commercials/Feature Films Director: Happiness is a Four Letter Word. IEMMY nominated. SAFTA winner. BET A-lister. Co-founder/owner Seriti Films.

The vision is alive. It has a heart beat of its own.

Upon visiting my gran she gave me this book and asked me to read it. The Bible verse on the top Isaiah 40:31 happens to be my favorite scripture so much so I have it tattooed on my left arm. My gran didn’t know this./‘Undertaking ventures of chasing your dreams requires overcoming the inherent fear of leaving the safety of solid ground behind, defying gravity and embarking on a journey of unexpected variables within predictable patterns towards a deliberate destination.’/

Krispy Kreme Friday.

The victory is in waking up and showing up. #DestroyToday

With an important project on the horizon. The Ford Everest allows me to travel with the team during pre-production as we discover different landscapes, chasing the perfect backlight. Check out the latest content piece directed by @directedbyp starring the legendary @tresorofficial on the @seriti.tv page. @fordsouthafrica ✊🏽🙏🏽 #SunsOutGunsOut

Had the honor of welcoming and giving a talk to the MNET MAGIC IN MOTION class of 2018. Any opportunity to talk about my journey in the industry and making of ‘Happiness Is A Four Letter Word’ alongside @bongiweselane (producer of Happiness) when your obstacles and challenges become inspirational milestones in other people’s lives. It all starts making sense. #boxofficehit #wemadehistory #eachoneteachone #butareyoureadyforthesequel

Dinner with...😉#TheBrothers

When you bring someone under your wing but you end up learning more from them than you thought you could teach. I appreciate you brother @directedbyp let’s continue growing.

Be still...

Taken at the Sithengi Cape Town World Cinema Festival (2002) where my short film, ‘Portrait Of A Dark Soul’ won best short film. I was 21yrs old. I had taken my KTV presenter savings to pay for this film. And also executive producer aka ‘my mom’ contributed to the funds of this film. I was meant to buy my first car with my KTV savings but I rather optioned to make this film, we shot on 16mm film, in the closing scene I burned a taxi and cops raided our set because we didn’t get permission for the taxi to be burnt. I ended up filming the cops too; asking them to be in the film. I wanted to make the film longer than 5min so I would go to different production houses collecting their left over film stock. The same festival Mfundi Vundla attended, unknown to me I would get a call a few years later to direct Jozi-H (an international medical drama series he was producing). Making me the youngest director to direct an international series. In the closing credits of the film I dedicate/special mention my father, James Tshetlo Moleya, he had passed on a few years before while I was still in high-school. Ironic to then win the Jamerson Award? Needless to say City Varsity Capetown gave me a full scholarship for my third year because of this award. With the prize money here, I bought myself my first car, 325i BMW white, two door. A car my father once owned, he used to drive the streets of our home town Tembisa with the sun-roof down and I would stick my head out. I feel like my father knew I was making this film in his memory and that’s why this award had to be the Jamerson Award. In this pic is Dr. Martin Botha (our Film appreciation lecturer; a man who taught me everything I know about the history of cinema). GOD turns great stories from our challenges/obstacles in life, so we can in turn inspire others and remind each other, that it’s not over until He is done. #KeepGoing #KeepPushing
