Chanelle worked as a full time actress for Franz Marx Films for the first five years of her career.
While she took a working holiday in the UK in 2004, she worked on short films and developed a strong interest in the process behind the camera. She returned to South Africa to study Film and Television at the Motion Picture Academy, with subjects including Production, Editing, Writing, and Directing with 19 distinctions in her first year.
In her second year she was offered a position as an assistant and video editor for a Wildlife Cinematographer, and gladly accepted. She travelled extensively through Namibia, making documentaries and capturing the essence of lodges for advertising purposes.
After Legends of Africa Productions she started a small production company that made in-house videos for Toyota Peninsula as well as showreels for performing artists.
Since 2011, Chanelle has been acting full time again in commercials, Film and Theatre.
Since May 2013, she has been working as a Casting Director and run her own casting studio in Observatory – Typecast Casting Directors.
