Goede Hoop

content campaign
Project Reel

Goede Hoop was a content campaign produced by Hyper Epic to go along with a documentary series by NTR and an exhibit at the Rijksmuseum in 2017. It is also the Dutch name for the cape around the southern most tip of the african continent. The campaign (and the documentary series) took you through the history of South Africa while moving through the country from Cape Town to Johannesburg.
