Filmography

 

Without Notice

"Without Notice" is a short film that was intended to be the pilot of an internet series at its inception. It is a parody inspired by the housing situation of Tel-Aviv's young population. The idea was to create an eccentric character whose inner logic turns the whole situation into utter madness.

cinema rama

Cinema Rama was created for an editing class, in which I was asked to create a short clip of no more than ten shots, dealing with memory. I used this opportunity to create a homage to an old cinema near my apartment at the time, which was about to be demolished. The idea was to try to capture all of the beautiful moments that existed at the cinema while it was active, and to show that from now on they will exist only in memory. It was important to me to create a tribute to this historic place that once displayed movies, and now serves as an exclusive housing complex. 

road sign

This clip was created for a photography class, in which we were asked to choose a space and use it in order to create a story. The clip was filmed on Dov Hoz Street in Tel-Aviv, a place that the crew and I viewed as very photogenic, and we created the story on site, without a script.

2 bedroom apartment

I created this movie together with Adi Mishnayot as part of a directing course we took, in which we were asked to create a film with three characters. The basic idea while writing the script was to make a fun film that doesn't take itself too seriously.
