Mix of Film, Video, Photography and Culture Production

Graak is an educated filmmaker with a Degree from the prestigious University of Arts London, London College of Communication (alumn 2006).

She was taught by the cult filmmakers William Raban and Ken McMullen concentrating her studies on Fiction Directing and Editing.

 

She never felt herself as a classical filmmaker, but was always drawn more towards something in between

Fine Arts Filmmaking and Classical Story Telling not quite crossing either genre.

 

Graak made her career as an Editor, Camera Person and Director in Film and TV and as a Digital Broadcast Media Producer in London, UK.

She worked in sound design and animation, directing live broadcast events and shoots and doing live vision mixing.

 

"As a trained dancer herself, Graak concentrates her poetic personal film work on creating short films based on

improvised dance movement and investigation into the artistic direction from the mixed media aproach."

 

 

Graak Produces and Directs her own artistic short films.
