Transmedia Motoring Content
MyOctane is a transmedia production company and one of our key motoring partners. The company was established to help realize a very African dream of co-creating the world’s wildest motoring show. After more than four years of blood sweat and tears the #MyOctane team mastered our motoring reality driven narratives, and the training we put in has paid off. We have produced several VLOGCAST specials against all odds; which will be aired at strategic intervals, after the launch of our weekly MyOctane Vlogcast Live stream broadcasts.
MyOctane’s passion is driven by its partners and executive producers: Allen Irwin (Hard Drive), Nico Van Den Heever (VCI), Craig Sobotker (Craig’s Car Care), Carlos Monteiro (Vamedias) and the organization is helmed by Bradley Jon Eaglefeather a South African Transmedia Producer and Conceptual Director.
