“Whenever I speak to a producer about a new project, the first thing that comes to mind is ‘responsibility.’
“I have worked with many international crews and I understand what it means when a company is coming from half way around the world and is depending on us to make sure their production will go smoothly. Three years ago I decided to establish my company website to share useful tools and suggestions with companies interested in filming in Israel. I am always glad to give advice about filming in Israel. In fact, I update the website with new places and experiences that I collect while working on different projects, whether it is an interesting excavation, festival, restaurant or production tip.”
Here are some of my favorites:

3 Best Shots of Jerusalem:

“One of the most important things for me is the safety of the crews coming to Israel. This is part of the responsibility as a producer, but it is also a personal responsibility I feel towards my clients. I have strong work ethics which are shared by the people and professionals I work with. Hard work and efficiency have been guiding my production work over the years. I take the time to understand my clients’ needs and visions for their films and I always make sure that they go home with the best footage possible.”
