Velocity Appoints Helena Woodfine & Karen Kloppers as Executive Producers

Velocity Films is proud to announce the appointment of Helena Woodfine and Karen Kloppers to their Executive Producer team.

Recognised as two of the most respected and awarded producers in South Africa, they bring with them a wealth of hands-on experience having produced for some of South Africa’s finest Directors.

Woodfine started her career at advertising agency TBWA\Hunt\Lascaris, producing over a period of ten years some of South Africa’s most iconic commercials. In 2002 she joined Velocity Films to produce for Greg Gray, their unwavering creative partnership of fourteen years resulting in a body of work consistent in quality and conceptual excellence.

Kloppers brings with her an equally stellar career spanning over 20 years at Velocity. Having produced for directors Keith Rose and Adrian De Sa Garces, Karen’s expert production skills have meant she has been an indispensable asset to the company. Most recently she has been responsible for the management and career mentorship of the younger directors and production teams. 

This new Executive lineup is evolving the brand while continuing to provide invaluable hands on production and creative support. Longstanding key player, Nicola Valentine, will continue to play a vital role in marketing and maintaining the Velocity profile and its Directors globally, remaining integral to the management team.
