Kraemer is a filmmaker, writer and educator whose creative interests lie at the intersection between traditional audio-visual storytelling forms and hybrid approaches to mediated experience promoted by emerging new media technologies. His film and video work is often inspired by the "non-places" of society - urban ruins, empty lots, highway overpasses and industrial zones - transitory spaces we often pass through unseeing - that are the cinematic backdrop for his personal, character-driven stories. His aesthetic explores strategies of immersion, verisimilitude and self-reflexivity to engage the viewer at a sensory level and to encourage heightened user interactivity.
Kraemer received his MFA in Film and Media Arts from Temple University and his BFA in Film from the University of Wisconsin - Milwaukee. His work has exhibited in festivals, conferences and galleries across the U.S., including Los Angeles, Boston, Chicago, Milwaukee, and Philadelphia. His scholarly writings on cinema aesthetics have won numerous awards and been published in the Journal of Film and Video. He currently works in the Baltimore area as an Assistant Professor at Towson University's Department of Electronic Media and Film, as well as a director and cinematographer.
