Diesel + EDUN: Puppets vs. Pantsula
Sean Metelerkamp joins Fly On The Wall
Director Sean Metelerkamp has joined Christopher Bisset and co-founder Bryan Little at Cape Town production company Fly On The Wall.
Sean’s first job since joining Fly On The Wall was Puppets vs. Pantsula (above), a Diesel + EDUN fashion film for Vice Magazine, shot in Soweto.
Sean directed the original Die Antwoord music video, Zef Side, which has just under 14 million views on YouTube; won a D&AD Yellow Pencil for Best Music Video; and won The YouTube Play competition.
Since then, Sean’s exhibited at The Guggenheim museums in New York, Bilbao, Venice and Berlin; had art residencies in New York; signed to agencies in London, Los Angeles and Paris; and been profiled in Playboy and Shots.
His recent photographic work includes documenting Monte Rosa old-age home and Noupoort rehabilitation centre, as well as Skeef Reënboog, shot across South Africa on borrowed and disposable film cameras. Sean’s also been recording street melodies from homeless people in Cape Town, New York and London.
“I love and respect Sean’s work,” says Bryan, who co-founded Fly On The Wall in 2004 with producer Filipa Domingues and cinematographer Grant Appleton. “He has always been a friend and someone who shared space and philosophies with us. He makes interesting, relevant work that blows people’s minds.”
