Dan Graetz

Dan founded graetzmedia in 2002, partway through a degree in Law & Business.  Web & graphic design efforts which at first covered uni fees, eventually gave rise to the creation of a company and the *cough* deferral of tertiary studies.  The business rapidly shifted into video production, initially servicing the meetings & events industry.  Since then graetzmedia has grown almost exclusively through repeat and referral business.  Dan is a self-taught director, writer, editor, colorist, 2d/3d motion graphics designer,  director-of-photography, occassional voice artist and frustrated actor.

Dan is plagued by a terminally short attention span, insatiable curiosity and a foolhardy eagerness to jump into the deep end – qualities that have also been the catalyst for many of graetzmedia’s ventures into new offerings.  Many of the items on our services page were a product of a client asking ‘do you guys do X’, us saying ‘Absolutely’, then hanging up the phone and googling ‘X’.
