SHAHAR (37, born in Israel) started his career in filmmaking as a cameraman for the IDF film unit. While completing his BA (with honors) in Political Science, he continued working as 2nd AC and then Focus Puller in Features & Commercials.
Building his reputation as passionate, creative and quick-thinking cameraman, Shahar moved to the position of Director of Photography. His work in the Documentary realm (feature films & series) won multiple awards by film festivals in Israel and around the globe. In the Commercial market, Shahar’s collaboration as Director & DP with BBR-Saatchi&Saatchi on Super-Pharm “Beauty Youtubers' Academy” (with Google IL) campaign won an EFFi GOLD award.
In recent years, we witness the "genre wall" breaking: Fiction, Non-Fiction & Commercials become interlinked, while at the same time, boundaries between media platforms become ever flexible. Utilizing his 15 years of experience filming various genres in a wide budget range, Shahar is perfectly positioned to find a CREATIVE, IMAGINATIVE & EFFECTIVE visual approach to tell stories on screens. Whatever their size.
