“The quality of a man’s life is in direct proportion to his commitment to excellence, regardless of his chosen field of endeavor.”
― Sherman Alexie
Timothy Hay, founder of Hellmot Productions, is a Videographer / Director, based in Ballito, South Africa
Timothy began his career in videography in 2005. Although originally from South Africa, Tim moved to England and the spark for his passion was fuelled, whilst filming his travels through Europe. He turned his focus to creative film making, made his way back to South Africa and landed a job as a camera operator/ editor, for a televised fishing show. This further inspired him to became a director and he left to grow his own business and started the production company he owns and runs today … Hellmot Productions.
Over the years he has refined his craft and honed his skills. He has worked on a wide variety of projects, non-profit organisations, video projects for My Kitchen Rules, Unilever, Super Sport, ASFN, Carte Blanche and Two Wheels, conceptualizing, filming and producing music videos and business promotional and social media content. Additionally, Timothy produced, directed and presented in a TV series called, Journey to The Roof, that ran successfully for 3 years on Super Sport and much more.
Having worked with some of the finest creative agencies and film crews, Timothy has developed the ability to not only communicate well with others, but to read situations as they unfold, each product is unique and custom made, shot by someone versed in film, with each film created, having a life of its own.
Timothy’s passion for film is evident in the quality of work that he produces. He never stops searching for ways to advance in the cinematography field. When he isn’t working, you will find him exploring the outdoors, either surfing the waves, biking a trail or building a contraption for his next filming idea.
