AWARD WINNING FILM + COMMERCIALS DIRECTOR AND PHOTOGRAPHER
CREATING SMART, SOULFUL, VISUALLY DRIVEN STORIES
I'm an award winning Jewish neurodivergent director, writer and producer with an eclectic body of work spanning comedy, brand, commercial, animation and music films.
My work as a commercial director has led me to partner with brands, artists, production companies or agencies for the likes of Center Parcs, Sudocrem, Barbican, Hyundai, Quickbooks, Hamptons, Sainsbury’s, MTV and EY with with playful takes on technology, arts, culture, lifestyle, history and parody set pieces.
My narrative work is driven by the funnier side of identity and culture, dealing with loss; emotional storytelling rooted in genre, characters with passions and finding the light in between the darkness, whilst finding a silly setpiece to capture it in.
I wrote and directed short film PANDEMIC SPY about how spies coped during the Pandemic lockdown. Nominated for best comedy film at the BAFTA qualifying Carmarthen Bay Film Festival, it was officially selected at 21 international film festivals, winning 7 best comedy film awards and amassed 7K views on short film website Omeleto in the first 24 hours of posting.
My music videos for Cornershop, Maroon Town and Punkture Sluts have been screened at BAFTA qualifying London Short Film Festival and Aesthetica Film Festival.
I am interested in exploring narrative projects in commercial, TV and film; virtual production (with training from Mars Academy); and second unit; as I develop future projects including a long form film exploring my family history as Jews in Iraq.
