Spunky Zoe’s works are based on her theory of two monsters, one that lives inside her and one that lives outside. Constantly battling, these two monsters pull and tug her in every direction making her face her deepest fears one drawing at a time.
Walter Pfeiffer is the Zürich based photographer whose portraits of friends, lovers, still life and scenery always taken with a large dose of fun have inspired a generation of photographers including Ryan McGinley, Terry Richardson, Wolfgang Tillmans and Juergen Teller. His publication Welcome Aboard, Photographs 1980-2000 brought with it a revival in the realistic photography movement at the turn of the century and since then Pfeiffer has collaborated with international magazines such as i-D, Butt, Vogue Hommes and Vogue Paris. Additionally, Pfeiffer has been the subject of numerous solo and group exhibitions. In 2008, Fotomuseum Winterthur presented In Love with Beauty, an unprecedented chronological overview of his work, spanning four decades from his beginnings in the early 1970s to his most recent work. An exhibition catalogue published by Steidl marked the event. His other publications include Cherchez La Femme! (2007), Night and Day (2007), Welcome Aboard, Photographs 1980-2000 (2001), The eyes, the thoughts, ceaselessly wandering (1986) and Walter Pfeiffer (1970 - 1980) (1980). Spring of 2010 brought a career retrospective at Hyéres 2010, the 25th annual international festival of fashion and photography.

The Animations: '5 4 3 2...', 'Galleria' and 'come on... get down' which is a Gangsta rap feat Arnold Alois Schwarzenegger.
The 3 short animations all hand-drawn 1600 frames cell animation with Highlighters used for color, it was hell to make but we love the final videos!
The first video '5 4 3 2...' is a series of continuous hollywood explosions edited into a simple beat.
The second 'Galleria' is a cut from Terminator 2 which is one of my favorite scenes from any movie.
The third 'come on... get down' is a original gangsta rap with lyrics provided by Arnold himself and music created by Harry McGowan
The short films premiered at the Standard Hotel in Downtown Los Angeles as part of Cine-Shorts which is a bi-monthly series that aims to provide a platform for local directors + aspiring filmakers making their mark in the city of los angeles.
