Archaeological excavation are always exciting. Especially so when done under the most historical acclaimed city in the world – Jerusalem. I was very happy to have the chance to work with the Israel Antiquities Authority, and to make their video on the new archaeological findings under the Western Wall Tunnels. Apparently this place is full of surprises, and the latest one is a Roman theater, buried just under the Wilson Arch. This video tells the story:
Edgybees is an amazing start-up company who made drones not only fun to fly around, but also a gaming consul that uses drones and augmented reality. We had the privilege to make this video for them and enjoy the ride in the sky.
The words “trailer”, “festival” and “screening” are definitely good signs — the completion of my feature film project “Land of the Little People”. With more than 7 years in the making, I can’t even start to explain my excitement, which is enormous. So, here it is, the trailer for Land of the Little People:
I love coffee, I really do (Although I can’t drink too much of it..). Not only do they have a wonderful taste and smell, they also have this special quality of magnificent tasty look, which adds a lot to the overall experience. That’s why I was so happy to make commercial videos for CoffeeStation. They have great coffee, professional baristas and top-notch design made by Lee-ran Shlomi Gidron & Itay Gidron and special tailored aprons made by Anat Berman. Making these videos was a real celebration of all the right colors and flavors.
I had the privilege to document Ros Plazma when he volunteered to paint for the ‘Land of the Little People’ crowd funding campaign. He did a great job in imagining a shot we’ve produced on video half a year later. In this shot the children are standing on top of a well and looking inside. What are they seeing? That is yet to be discovered…

A few days ago Ros called me and asked if I would like to come and document a ‘wall painting’ work he is doing. How could I refuse?
After a lot of work we’ve launched our crowd funding campaign!!!
Join our gang by pledging to our campaign:
‘Land of the Little People’ is a work in progress project about four young kids who live in a village of professional soldiers. Not so far away, in the wild fields that surround the village, there is an old abandoned army base. The kids build their stronghold in one of the only standing structures in the camp – a stone shed with an ancient dry well inside. When a war breaks out the fathers go to war and the mothers sit in front of the television and listen to the never-ending news reports. The kids, with no one to supervise them, go back to their camp. To their amazement, they find two soldiers, who deserted their units, hiding in the secret shed. The kids decide to do whatever they can in order to make the soldiers go away. In their struggle, they use all means necessary known to them.

It’s great fun to work with music and talented musicians. After my work with Joca Perpignan who gave me a wonderful Brazilian joyride I jumped on the wagon of Liat & Yogev. I met them through a good friend called Eyal Atzmon who play with them in a band called Ha’rochvim (The Riders). Liat plays the violin and Yogev plays the guitar. They decided to join forces and work together on a show. They’ve named themselves – Musicouple. I had the honor to produce a few videos for them while they were recording wonderful covers in Nir Averbuch’s studio.
After they’ve accomplished forming a musical repertoire, I was called to make a commercial video introducing them at work – playing in several different situations – from a studio recording to performing in front of audiences. We shot the video in Tel-Aviv in one day, jumping from one location to another.
And here is another clip:
Liat & Yogev, I wish you all the luck in the world and I can’t wait to watch you on your premiere!
