having known each other since high school, Sebastian and Jan decided to join forces under the name of shootingmonkeys. travelling all over the world has deeply influenced their outlook on life. they share a passion for a humorous perspective on life. a smile, they believe, is the universal human language. the most powerful weapon. in their films, they look for the humanity that resonates within our hearts, they look for the real in the absurd and the absurd in the real. and one thing is for sure: a day without laughter is a wasted one.
