Mag. Florian Razocha is a self employed filmmaker, camera man and video producer from Vienna. He usually produces small video projects – amongst which you will, for example, find a trailer for the zeitim:puls² Kurzfilmwettbewerb 2012 and, since the beginning of 2014, a documentary film project about the idea of an unconditional basic income.
On top of that, he is co-founder and since 2003 co-organiser of the free festival “Kunstmue Festival Bad Goisern” in Upper Austria, which is organised entirely through voluntary work. This little open air festival, which is featuring a wide variety of alternative music, is – as an important part of it’s principles – based on the idea of supporting companionship of people from diverse parts of society.
The aims of the project zeitim:puls are closely related in many ways to those of the Kunstmue Festival, and that’s why Florian is especially thrilled to be part of the jury of the zeitimpuls Kurzfilmwettbewerb 2016.

His artistic interest is the deconstruction of everyday phenomena and the effects of pop culture. The cross-media works, which the artist prefers to present in the form of abstract collections, focus on discovering hidden but omnipresent norms.
For some years now, he has been involved in narrative-deconstructive film techniques, using static photographs instead of conventional film material or reducing events to a static setting.
