Major project:

White Darkness

A short narrative animated film based on my childhood memory: A boy sits by himself in a synagogue during Saturday morning prayer.


  • I’m a director and 2D animator, originally from Israel. I specialize in narrative animation, and enjoy directing and telling stories that are on the border between comic and dramatic. Many of my works deal with the culture and society in which I live, and are based on personal experiences of mine.
