Photographer and graphic artist from my hometown Ribe.
Steffen Graumann (b. 1968) is a multi tal- ented creative soul. He’s a fast and curious learner who loves to experiment. He’s a do it yourself kind of guy.
He started with still photography at age 5. That stuck with him and he has since pro- gressed through various photo techniques to include video works.
Back in 1988 he began freelancing as a sound engineer, working with live concerts, festivals, theatre, studio recordings and CD mastering.
Later in 1996 he started working fulltime as a graphic designer/engineer. In the past 10 years or so, he has worked with webdesign as well.
These experiences (combined with an general understanding of technology) has given him a very broad knowledge and the ability to fix problems on the fly and keep the show going. It’s also a very handy set of knowledge in regards to video production. He can shoot video, record audio, edit, do post produc- tion, color grade, make the graphics, video effects and some motion graphics.

At the age of 16 he studied classical piano and jazz ensemble on the drums at the Music Academy.
Through the years he has been touring with several bands such as Khillcoopa and Lope, but later he decided to focus on his own compositions. He has composed music for TV commercials, radio-jingles and produced EP’s for upcoming bands in Copenhagen and Sweden . Aged 24 he decided to concentrate on exploring more contemporary sounds and began to write his solo music.
Due to other music projects, his solo album will be released in the beginning of 2012, which is going to be available on itunes and Vinyl.
Photographer, video artist and filmmaker from NEW YORK.
Does the voice over for my videos ALIENATION & LONELINESS, WISH and NO LOVE.
Joshua Sandler is a photographer and video artist based in Brooklyn, NY who works mostly in collaboration with his younger brother zachary. Joshua and Zachary Sandler are Brooklyn based artists who come from distinct creative backgrounds. Zachary was trained in modern drama and performance, earning a masters’s degree at UCD in Dublin, Ireland, while Joshua earned an MFA in photography and video at Pratt Institute in Brooklyn, NY. Zachary is currently studying to be a psychotherapist and Joshua teaches photography and video in New York. They work predominantly in performance-based video, employing post-dramatic performance style and highly confrontational documentary/interview techniques with sometimes-volatile subjects. They facilitate scenarios that attack and upset the sense of comfort that so often leads to the dishonesty and denial prevalent in postmodern life.
As teenagers the two brothers began collaborating on photography projects as a means to subvert a reality marked by alienating social constructs. These early works, steeped in adolescent psychosexual energy, documented the fantasy, inhibition and intimacy shared between family and close friends. The photographic sensibilities that now permeate their video work, utilizing techniques fashioned for the stretching out and locking in to highly emotional/visceral moments, were developed in large part during their adolescent collaborations.
Reminiscent of Artaudian theatre, the brothers’ work is overtly aware of the caring and cruelty involved when performers show an audience a truth that they do not wish to see. The aim is to capture a general state of alienation, and the protective worlds that people create in the midst of oppressive or tumultuous circumstances.
The brothers’ major work for 2010, titled the ‘Evan Trilogy,’ is a series of three films depicting the inner world of their bipolar friend Evan Shaffer. Josh and Zach film and edit their video work themselves, and in general employ a keep it simple and raw philosophy to producing videos. They have been featured internationally in numerous screening and film festivals and continue to produce new work.
