Going through infertility is one of the hardest journeys a person can go through.
Sharing the emotions and feelings involved especially not easy.
Knowing that I manage to express myself best through film making, my wife encouraged me to create this short film. It’s a film about the pain and the hope.
About opening up and realizing that we’re not alone.
I hope this helps those who identify with the feelings and provides a little awareness into infertility and IVF.
Following a woman’s journey in which she loses all what she had and who she was, “Missing”, explores the meaning of memory, life and love.
This film is dedicated to my grandmother who has Alzheimer’s, and was the inspiration for this film.

“A Face. The Day. A Memory”
Beit Avi Chai
Barel Toledano and I had the honor to create a short film in memory of Noam Goldman who was killed in the Second Lebonese War in 2006.
The film is based on texts that Noam himself wrote throughout his life, and expresses his love for cooking and for life.
The short film is part of “A Face. The Day. A Memory”, an artistic commemorative project initiated by Beit Avi Chai.
The project highlights the memory of the lives of fallen Israeli soldiers and victims of terror through short, animated films.
If you ever had a pet you must know what it’s like. The special connection between you and your loved one. This story is about that unique bond. It is based on my own personal experience.
This short film was created using Blender and the post production was done in After Effects. This was my graduation project from my animation course at IAC.
I based this story on my beloved dog who passed away last April. She spent 15 and a half wonderful years with me and my family. After she passed away, it took a while getting used to life without her. It felt like she was always around, when in reality she wasn’t really there any more. In a sense, this is a way to say goodbye.

Since the original video, we’ve created another version and an animated GIF for the Hanukkah holiday.
For a school project we were asked to create a promo for a film festival.
I decided to create a festival dedicated to nature films called “Eye of Nature”
For the promo I took still images I had captured over the years and “brought them to life”.
This is the story about man and nature.
“Saorsa” is an ancient Scottish word for “Freedom”,
Something all of us- man and animal, strive to achieve.
Sometimes, us humans, take it away from others.
This film is my first take at combining 3D Animation and video.
The animation and rendering were done in Blender, Compositing in AE.
It was created as my final project of my “Post Production” course.
