Michael Gramaglia
Gramaglia was born in 1964, and spent his early years living in Mamaroneck, New York. The son of a feature soundman, he was raised in a family with extensive ties to the film world. After graduating high school, he worked as boom and video operator for eight years, and lived in Rome, Italy for three years, where he apprenticed under Vittorio Storaro. Upon his return to the U.S., he daylighted in an entertainment financial management firm, where he worked with and befriended The Ramones. END OF THE CENTURY is Gramaglia's first feature film. He lives in Queens, New York with his wife, two cats and a dog.

Jim Fields
Fields was born in Manhattan in 1964 and grew up in Larchmont, New York. He met Michael Gramaglia at Mamaroneck High School, where they shared an enthusiasm for Super 8mm filmmaking, The Ramones, The Clash, The Buzzcocks, Elvis Costello, The Cars, Blondie and many other bands. After graduating from Vassar College in 1986, Fields became an apprentice editor and, later, an editor and graphic designer for TV commercials, music videos and long-format projects. He has edited and directed for a wide variety of clients including MTV, NBC, Sony Music and The Howard Stern Show. He lives in Brooklyn, New York with his wife and baby son. END OF THE CENTURY is his first feature film.

John Gramaglia
Principal Editor
Brother of Michael, Gramaglia was born in 1966. After working in production and sound recording for eight years, he joined commercial editorial house Dennis Hayes & Associates in 1994. He joined Chinagraph Editorial in 1997, continuing his career in film editing as a staff editor. Having been a musician in New York rock bands for 20 years, Gramaglia's musical sense has given him a strong talent for music editing. He has edited commercials, EPKs, music videos and documentaries. His music videos include spots for Coal Chamber, Mark Lizotte, Olu and Slipknot.
