Director Biography

In 2015, while studying painting at the Institute of Fine and Media Arts at the University of Applied Arts Vienna (2012 to 2018), Gratzer decided to create animated short films, largely under solo visual and acoustic direction. Further studies led him to the Moholy-Nagy University of Art and Design in Budapest, where he graduated with the film 'In The Upper Room' in 2021. He lives in Vienna as a freelance artist, distributor and passionate hobby table tennis player.
