About Us

Global Story-Tellers

Bird Murmur was first conceived in 2018 after creative/life partners Kim Kylland and Todd Schramke collaborated over two production weeks in Acapulco, Mexico on the feature-length documentary Stateless. This dynamic partnership brings a wide array of skills to the table. Both Todd and Kim have years of experience in creating and producing content of all kinds: from commercials to cinema; scores to songs; and everything in between.

Todd Schramke

Director/Cinematographer/Composer

Todd Schramke is a filmmaker and musician originally from New Jersey, now based in the Los Angeles. He started producing both videos and music independently around age 12 with whatever limited equipment he could get his hands on. At 13 he started playing in bands, and at 18 he began producing professional video content.

In 2012 he earned a Journalism and Media Studies degree from Rutgers University.

His first feature-length documentary was completed in 2016, an advocacy film titled “Misty Dawn,” funded by the Domestic Violence Action Group.

Research and early production began that same year for his second documentary, “Stateless.” Set in Acapulco, it follows a community of self-proclaimed “anarchists” as they try to navigate away from a world of centralized governments and financial systems.

In 2019 he was the cinematographer for the indie comedy-drama feature, Generation Wrecks.

His commercial credits include a range of business and nonprofit clients spanning across corporate, retail, real estate, politics, sports, and performing arts. Notable clients include the New York Yankees and Greyhound.

Kim Kylland

Producer/Sound-Recordist/Composer

Kim Kylland is a versatile sound chameleon. A composer, vocalist, songwriter, location sound mixer, and producer, her journey began with a deep love for writing songs on her guitar.

Nearly 15 years spent as a touring musician (covering over a dozen countries before her 25th birthday) she decided to take a break from touring when she fell in love with composing for moving picture.

Educated in music composition and studio recording at the prestigious Mills College, Kylland has since scored television ads for clients like Canon, Toyota, and JCPenney.

She is currently scoring a feature length documentary (on which she was also a location sound mixer) called Stateless. With a background in professional audio environments, building an additional career as a location sound recordist felt like a natural progression as well as an exciting and rewarding new challenge.

When not composing, mixing, or capturing sound on a film set, Kim can be found practicing archery or dreaming about horses.
