Big Fellas was written by Ross Garland, directed by Philip Roberts and stars a South African cast. The film was shot on various locations that range from Cape Town to Cango Caves to Johannesburg. The story captures what life is really like in the new South Africa when it comes to BEE (Black Economic Empowerment).
Jake (Colin Moss) and Zed (Ross Garland) decide to make a documentary about what life is really like for supermodels. What started out as a past time project turns into a remarkable documentary that promises lots of money. However, they need to find a black partner in order to make the film. They go on a road trip, with two days to find this partner and get to Jozi in order to close the deal.
