What our 100 Bucks producer Mutaleni Nadimi says

"100 Bucks" is an urban Namibian drama - the kind of film I have always wanted to make. This short film deals with issues that bring much joy and trouble to Namibians — love and money. Together with a very talented and committed director and a hardworking crew we were able to shoot a tight and complex script showcasing the talents of our dynamic cast. Our biggest challenge was covering all the different characters and locations in which the story unfolds whilst maintaining a sense of cohesion and flow. It was also very important to showcase Windhoek, our city, in her many guises. The Namibia Film Commission and Focus Feature’s Africa First Program made this film possible, together with the generous support of several local businesses and professionals. "100 bucks" will challenge its audience to not only consider the value of a hundred-dollars, but also the worth of their relationships and how the decisions we make everyday affect us all.

100 BUCKS ACTOR’S PROFILE # 3

My real name is…
Girley Charlene Jazama

My 100 Bucks character name is…

Maria

I enjoyed portraying her because…
She is one tough cookie to crack! She’s been through a lot of things in life and digging within myself to connect with Maria and understand her so I could best portray her was my most treasured moment. So the process was intense but worth it, cause it also gave me the opportunity to not be so quick to point fingers and judge other people because sometimes it isn’t necessarily a question of choice but merely trying to survive in this dog eat dog world. I thus have a fresher perspective regarding people and why they sometimes do things they don’t necessarily want to do but because they have to.

Moves you wish your character had not done in the film…
That weird look right at the end as I walked out…I didn’t like that squinting angry look I gave #JustSaying :)
(we love THAT look! #justsaying)

Being part of this project was…
AWEsome!!!!!!

What I learnt about myself…
I actually am a patient person

If I got a free 100Bucks I would…
I would watch it with family and friends (no bootlegging)- Oh I would let them watch it, whilst I play around on my phone (I hate watching myself acting, its torture cause I just feel I could have done it better or I should have done that or this…ja. (ja nie, we were talking about a hundred dollar note, but we got you to spill more beans about you :)

I also want to say…
Well done to the cast and crew.
100 BUCKS ACTOR’S PROFILE # 2

My real name is…

Steven Afrikaner

My character name in 100 Bucks is…

Tsotsi 2

 

I enjoyed portraying the character because…

it was a light-hearted  and really comical role with adventure and interesting dialogue plus playing alongside a great stand-up comedian in the form of Onesmus “Slick” Upindi who played Tsotsi 1 made it double the fun. I also wanted to step into the shoes of a Tsotsi (Street Gang) to feel what they go through in life (their daily trials and tribulations) and explore what motivates their hustling for a better life.

 

The move I wish my character had not done in the film is…

to not be so vigilant at the market place where the Policeman came and confiscated the 100 bill from me. I’m sure if I was on alert I would have hidden the note (money) where the Policeman wouldn’t have easily found it.

 

Being part of this film for me was…

another chance to be in a local film and a great learning experience when it comes to making a low-budget film and working closely with everyone involved in the entire film making process.

 

What I learned about myself while doing this role is…

that I have the skills to pull off any character with a bit of research, good observation of everyday people and by getting out of my comfort zone and stretching my acting abilities.

 

If I get a free 100 bucks I would…

mmmm…entertain myself at a bar! Using the half and save the other half for something I may be in need of at that moment.

 

I also want to say…

making films is reflective of ourselves in terms of the society that we live and the future that lies ahead of us, while simultaneously educating the new generation whom I call the Tech-Generation. Film is just another way of story telling and an interesting method that involves audio, visual images and the provocation of the human memory.

100 Bucks Artist Profile # 1

Lynn Strydom

My 100 Bucks character’s name is:

Tameka

My character was interesting because/I enjoyed portraying him or her because:

The truth is that Tameka is the story our generation is familiar with – she’s a struggling African woman of our times. And bringing her to life was both a challenge and an honor.

Moves you wish your character had not done in the film:

I wish she hadn’t “stuck it out” for so long

Being part of this project for me was:

I felt a part of a giant leap forward in Namibian Film. We have great stories and the aspiration to make great films out of them.

What I learnt about myself:

Nothing makes me more proud of my efforts than knowing that I gave everything.

If I got a free 100 Bucks I would:

Buy someone a copy of the movie ;)

I also just want to say:

A great big thank you, from my heart, to the entire team - especially Mutaleni and Oshi.

2013 is going to be amazing, I can just feel it!
