Yoram began his career as an opinionated copywriter and then executive creative director in Tel-Aviv, working for far too many agencies and big brands. Then, after winning the industry’s most coveted awards, he understood the only way to stop giving hell to directors, was to direct himself.
He did well enough. First with funny television spots and then with slightly less-funny-but-more-smiling spots… After directing his first car commercial, he fell in love with the genre and did quite a few of those (For Mazda, Volvo, Hyundai, Ford, Mitsubishi, Dacia and more… )
A few relevant facts: His non-dialogue short "Moon Drops" is the big winner of the last Comic Con in San Diego, Judges choice award, Best sci-fi fantasy award. The film appeared in 28 festivals and won the Grand Prix at the Festival du film Mervillieux Paris, best short in Yubari Japan and in Serbia.
His James Allen spot has reached more than 38M(!) viral views on YouTube. Mazda - The Blind Drive was chosen “Ad Of The Day” at Adforum.
A few irrelevant facts: Yoram is an author of 5 children books and a novel and he is about to complete his MA (Culture studies, with honors if you must ask). Helping a friend open a restaurant made him a shareholder of a huge London success without understanding much about food OR business.
He is still a bit surprised he is being paid for what he does (and thanks god he has agents who deal with this stuff).
