Hi, I am Itai.

With over 15 years of experience as a Director and Cinematographer in the TV & Film Industry, turning original ideas into moving cinematic experience is my happy daily  routine. Working as a Creative for  Berlin based start-ups and Multimedia agencies I transformed my experience in Visual story telling into highly engaging marketing content.
