Mitch Stratten’s film-making centres on strong feeling and ranges from highly technical feats to performance, comedy and documentary.
Mitch’s most recent commercial project was for Turkish Airlines and was a 30 second long epic pool dunk, all done in one shot, which generated over 2.5 million hits on YouTube in the first five days online.
Originally from the Johannesburg ghetto, with a background in fine art, music production and industrial design – Mitch invented the filming technique Timesculpture, which he utilised to create the groundbreaking imagery for his highly successful commercial commissioned by Toshiba. The project holds a Guinness World Record and won over a dozen awards all over the world.
Mitch recently completed his first major personal work – OCP – a long gestating production and his most ambitious to date. OCP was released on award winning platform Sedition, where it is curated alongside other leading contemporary artists of the world.
