Carbon Films is a production company based in Cape Town, South Africa. 

Started by long term collaborators, director Bruno Bossi and producer Kirsten Clarence, our focus is to work on great ideas with good people.




Born in Angola and raised in South Africa, Bruno started out his working life in photography. A discipline he describes as the perfect combination of art and science. 

After 12 years working between South Africa and Europe and shooting international campaigns for some of the planet’s most well-known brands, he was ready for his next challenge. 

In 2007, he began his journey into film. Working with local and international production houses, he quickly gained recognition for conceptual strength and attention-to-detail. 

Along the way, his work has won favour with viewers and award show judges.

Kirsten started out in the world of fashion, but it wasn’t long before her love for film lead her into production. 

In 1999, she started work at Ogilvy Cape Town and after some glory years at various agencies she decided to see how the other half lived. 

Kirsten has organized shoots with stars like Charlize Theron and Ronaldo. And overseen large-scale international campaigns for some of the world’s biggest brands, including Volkswagen, SAB Miller, AMEX, Coca-Cola, Castrol and BMW, to name a few.

So, however unusual your idea, there are few people out there more qualified, more willing, or more able to bring it to life.
