Rob Payton

Rob’s enthusiasm for film making and the kitchen is hard to suppress, it is perhaps why he has found himself on the approved list of filmmakers for major brands like Unilever, Nestle and PepsiCo. His work as a DP over the past 20 years has received international recognition, and his transition into directing his own work was a logical one.

His passion lies in integrating actor’s performance and food demo in a seamless and appetizing way. Whether it is supermarkets, foodstuffs or restaurants, his approach can be summed up as ego free, collaborative and inventive. His background as a DP provides the highly technical know how that Table Top filmmaking needs.

Rob’s work directing and filming celebrities as varied as Mel Gibson, George Clooney, Gordon Ramsay, David Beckham and Jamie Oliver, shows he is comfortable on any international stage, although he freely admits he loves to shoot with the team here in Cape Town where he has been living for more than 10 years.
