Hi, I am the Grrrl… and I am Mr Sakitumi (Ladies first [-_-]). Together we are Mr Sakitumi & the Grrrl. We love tickling your retinas and cuddling your ears, and especially like to make you smile through our art. We are creators, live performers and world travelers with our quirky combination of visuals and music.

Fylgja

during Inka’s artist residency in Iceland with the SíM residency in Reykjavik, the Mr and Grrrl captured this dreamworld in their own way. Exploring the otherworldly nature with Jess expressing the land through her body, Lucy Hazard filming and Mr Sakitumi lending sound to the emotions… unforgettable

thank you

Mysterium Tremendum

Mysterium Tremendum is the latest immersive collaboration between Faith XLVII and Inka Kendzia created at the Juxtapoz magazine Clubhouse during Art Basel Miami.
Combining old and new technologies these South African enchantresses envelop us in a carefully constructed inner sanctum of astronomy and journey us through the mystical notion of the infinite within. In a time of intense political and cultural apprehension this work arouses a mysterious and sublime knowing which is undoubtedly needed for a shift in the global realpolitik.

StarBalls – The Force is awkward (Mr Sakitumi’s Videoscratch)

Mr Sakitumi

With ‘The Force Awakens’ releasing worldwide in just a week, I wanted to do a video scratch mashup of Star Wars and Space Balls = Star Balls. I also added some beats to the Imperial March. This is a one take live performance.
 

The Grrrl

I just helped a little with the split screen composite and designing the end title.

Franklinstein

This is me playing a bunch of instruments, writing and recording a track from scratch, but filming as each part gets recorded. It’s my first video experiment of this kind. I shot and edited it myself. Ableton Live was used for both the audio and the video editing I wouldn’t call this a music video, it’s more a video of music being made. Here is Franklinstein….it’s Aliiiiive!!

Valpre “don’t worry”

The brief was quite simple: kids playing and a meaningful message at the end of it. I just happened to have bought a ukulele the day before this briefing. Coincidence – I THINK NOT… the instrument led the pace of the playfulness of the entire piece and I was able to flex more orchestral skills deeper in. Playful and Epic – it’s what I do best.

Mr Sakitumi Theme Song

A little video mashup created in Ableton Live and a fitting chorus

Wimpy The Skoltimaiers

Sean was asked to adapt the pop hit “funky town” from the eighties to be played on glasses. spent the day banging on tabletops, clinking and tapping away… super fun


Parola Bianca – Orbit

The SOGNAMBULA FESTIVAL in Italy allowed for the planting of the dream seed from a long time ago… The fantastic Francesca and her PAROLA BIANCA together with the MOONLIGHT INVASION were invited to this dreamy Festival. For years we had been wanting to play with projections on PAROLA BIANCA and finally we had our chance to tell a story in light. This edit is a glimpse of the site specific performance at one of the most special Festivals I have had the joy of being able to immerse myself in

Grazie Mille

Sleep Well Tonight

I was given Posters designed by Anthony Burrill and asked to translate them into motion so I conceptualised a range of stop motion animations incorporating his design into a fun feel good call to action for Do It Day. Thank you Alexis Roberts and the amazing team that came together and gave so freely of their energy and time for a great cause.

Scotland from Home

This fantastically funfilled Campaign was directed by the great Jason Xenopolous. Eugenie, Editor from Priest, and myself worked closely together to get the unique animations to really fit the edit and overall styling. This campaign went on to win Gold and Silver Loerie Awards for the Team and the Jupiter Drawing Room Cape Town

Vj for the FANpark 2010

The soccerfever gripped us tight; we spent every night vjing for the great bands on display at the FIFA Fanpark in the centre of the city. The majestic Table Mountain as an ever-changing glamorous backdrop. Thank you to the fearless team of vjs and camera people braving the vuvuzela toting masses, also huge thanks to The Storyboy for this edit and the
fabulous motion graphics

Fresh Living TV

A fun stop motion project for the intro sequence for a local Television Show. I collaborated with the great MochoLoco for the handcrafted paper artwork, much more fun than clicking a mouse : )

Everything must go

The grrrl also collaborates with noel – together they are PonYpaNda . The ponypanda had heaps of fun stop motion animating the amazing art created by david shillinglaw and indigo for their exhibition at wordofart.

Red Bull Mobile Launch

We created all visual content for the night of the launch of Red Bull Mobile in SA. This 3 minute video was created together with Wicked Pixels and was played as the main launch moment of the night also featuring Faithless and Goldfish performing live at the Turbine Hall in Johannesburg. SayThankYou composed the music for this launch video played across 5 screens surrounding the audience in the Industrial chic venue

Mediclinic Longjump

I conceptualised and designed all motion graphics for this commercial for Mediclinic. As always it is great to work with the Jupiter Drawing Room team and the amazing director Jeana Theron/

SYMBIOSIS /a mutually beneficial relationship between different people or groups/ A showcase video of a CREATIVE TECHNICAL experience evening. We joined forces with the incredible guys from Bad Weather, and put together an evening of entertainment to showcase how a simple concept can grow and become something special with the right team behind it. Bad Weather were partnering with one of their key technical suppliers, C&S Audio. Shot and edited by: Tash Montlake

I made the music for this video installation in one night as I was about to travel out internationally… there is nothing like a deadline ….

The Grrrl

Noël Labridy and I conceptualized, filmed and created this video installation consisting of 2 related movies.
POWER OF RULING
confronts the fundamental streaks of power and/or rule. The stillness of the two intertwined people forms a peaceful counterpoint to the harshness of the projected visuals.

UNITY
The fight with the ego is symbolized as an inner struggle for control. We live as disconnected machines
in constant fight with ourselves and our surrounding, with a distorted perception.
Once we open our hearts and live with compassion and empathy, true humanity lives inside us.


Mr Sakitumi


We had the great opportunity to play at the Sónar Cape Town Festival. Thanks to Golden Circle for the great beaming lights and super booming sound, Seed Experiences for bringing Sónar to Cape Town and Sónar Festival for existing : )

The Grrrl


Big Shout out to all the people who came to our show, we had great fun


Mr Sakitumi


When you are about to play at Sónar Cape Town 2014 and get to use some awesome Jeremy Scott Adidas gear…. get a camera and start shooting

The Grrrl


Super inspired by the crazy outfits, I created some hand drawn illustrated loops to add to this track and to our live set. We did this over 3 days … so much fun, thank you Adidas


Mr Sakitumi


This track features on my latest EP release ‘Sweet & Sour Vol.2′ (2014)
it also features the grrrl on vocals.
mix and mastered by simon ‘ fuzzy’ ratcliffe (sound and motion studios)
you can download this track along with the full ep for free from my soundcloud page:

we shot this footage ourselves, styled by crystal birch (with the assistance of jade ayla rea & louise steytler)
music video edited and effected by me. we wanted all of ti to reflect the fun we had and also show a glimpse of our live shows. I added VDMX effected video layers into the edit


Mr Sakitumi

Got to record the sounds from a super car. Made a track out of it…. was super fun… got to drive fast

Thank you to the amazing team that made this all possible
Dylan Culhane – Director
Carol – Editor (Bring back choirboy/Priest)
Crystal birch – Styling

Michael Ellis – Camera

Kaley – Make Up

Rio – Producer

The Grrrl


We were invited to be inspired by the sights and sounds while driving the Mercedes E 500 convertible with the top down to create a musicvideo for MB life – the online magazine
We loved every moment!
The super short turn around time – delivery of a 3minute 33seconds video 3 days after the shoot – made for vj effects in the online process rather than using AFX .


 

Mr Sakitumi

I retimed some of the loops in Ableton live and gave these to the grrrl for the edit

For the music, I also co-produced as Mr Sakitumi with GoodLuck

The Grrrl

The great Goodluck asked for some added grrrlpower for their track “Bounce me Brother”

I treated some of the clips recording a live mix out of VDMX and then used this, the original clips and the loops from Mr Sakitumi for the edit.
It was fab to build a little paper stage and project the edit that Mr Sakitumi and myself had much looping fun putting together.


 

Mr Sakitumi

we had fun putting some stop motion visuals to the beat … keeping it really simple.. sound to visual to sound.
This was created as a team

Sean Ou Tim (MR SAKITUMI)
Inka Kendzia (THE GRRRL)
Fletcher Beadon (HIMSELF)

The Grrrl

I cut up various bits of stop motion fun that had been created previously together with Vicky and Noël for the Loerie Awards Show visuals.

Fletcher also mastered the sound for added oomph


Mr Sakitumi

happy 2013

The Grrrl

to all you super beings

This shows two of our gigs in Switzerland as a yummy combo edit; LeZoo Usine and The Loft Café. We loved the multi screen visal set up at LeZoo – the best gig for visuals – and the super rocking huge sound.
