Kramer, a creative with a propensity for acting outside of ad-guy guidelines, has directed numerous commercials, film projects and music videos; he is now set to sign with Chelsea Pictures for commercials representation. He helmed The Other Final while working with executive producer de Jongh and Jacqueline Kouwenberg, both of
KesselsKramer (the film was edited by Jonathan Griffith). "I was already driving on the same road for a couple of years, and suddenly, at a crossing, my favorite sport, Buddhism and the opportunity to make a longer film passed by - it was all too good to resist, so I took a turn," says Kramer. "The whole experience has been a big lesson in humanity, compassion and filmmaking,. and I hope to do another feature as soon as possible." The Other Final has played the festival circuit to accolades and has gained some Euro distribution, but producers are seeking a partner for U.S. distribution. The film was funded and produced by KesselsKramer in cooperation with Mercurio Cinematografica in Italy and Japan's Robot Communications.
