This short film is a narrated slideshow celebrating the 70th birthday on 12 Feb 2013 of Lewis Gottschalk, a South African accountant; father of four and husband to Sandy for 27 years.
Lewis asked us to create a short Life Story for an event to commemorate his 70th. He wanted to give an overall view of his life so far. So we thought a “narrated slideshow’ would do the trick. We loved creating it and editor Charlene Waite did a fantastic job.
Lewis grew up in the magical Hex Rivier region near Worcestor in the Western Cape Winelands. His parents owned a general dealership and times were tough in the early days. As a child Lewis used to count the change in his parents store. An experience, he proudly says, that more than likely steered him towards a career as an accountant.
In this Life Story you’ll meet the people in Lewis’s life. You’ll see the places and hear some of the stories that have special meaning for Lewis. It’s certainly been an interesting journey from Hex Rivier to the beautiful home he has today overlooking the Atlantic Ocean on Cape Town’s coast. Many happy returns Lewis and thanks for the inspiration! A special thank you to Russ Nerwich for his beautiful music in the immigration section of the film.
