Nony Geffen - Writer, Director, Lead Actor
Born and raised in a distant, horribly boring village in Israel, with no cable TV and no internet connection, surrounded by a whole lot of nothingness, I had plenty of time to devote to my imagination.A year ago, I shut myself in a room for a week and wrote the screenplay for NOT IN TEL AVIV, forgoing food or rest. We shot it as an independent feature just a few months later. It's a small story, but it's mine.
Ziv Berkovich - Cinematographer
Born in Kazakhstan, Ziv moved to Israel at the age of 5. He developed his loved for movies while forging a career for himself as a teen salon dancing champion. Ziv plays an important role in the movie scene in Israel. Graduating with honors from the Sam Spiegel School of Film and Television, he's since shot countless student films, feature length films, commercials, and the Cannes Film Festival award-winning film -"Anthem".
Itai Tamir- Producer
The old fox of the group, Itai is a well-known and unconventional film producer in Israel.
Nony and Itai met for the first time in a small coffee shop in Tel aviv. Nony handed the screenplay for "NOT IN TEL AVIV" over to Itai, who proceeded to generously pay the 5 Dollar bill for both their coffees. Nony took this as a sign: This is the man who's going to produce my movie…
Uzi Ramirez- Original Score
The hairy, sexy, informal king of the Israeli indie music scene is the man behind the kick-in-the-gut soundtrack of the movie. With several successful bands and albums behind him, including Boom Pam and the Ramirez Brothers, Uzi finally decided to take on a film soundtrack. He was just waiting for the appropriately odd and passionate project to come along.
Uzi finds his inspiration in watching old WWF fights. Every dusk he dresses up as the Undertaker, dons a black jacket, applies fake tattoos to his arm and start composing.But all that's on the outside. Deep inside, he's a shy teen aged girl.
Rotem Bar Or- The Theme Song
"Giant Heart"- Not In Tel Aviv theme song, is an original song written and composed by brilliant the singer song writer Rotem Bar. Rotem is also the leader and founder of his indie folk group- The Angelcy. In the trailer and in the film itself the song was performed by Rotem and the female lead actor Romi Aboulafia
What We Need & What You Get
The good news is: We've already shot the film. Everyone, and we do mean everyone, worked for free: actors, crew, editors, musicians and all.
NOT IN TEL AVIV is not only a movie, it's a group of artists and filmmakers who gave their time, their skill and their love to help Nony bring this heart-warming tale to life.
That group now needs your help in the final post production stages. This is where your support and belief in us can have the biggest affect.
We need to raise at least 10,000 dollars to complete the movie. Every dollar raised will go towards sound design, picture and color correction, the magic polish that makes a movie.
We will then be able to deliver the film to broadcasters, premiere it in international indie film festivals, and ship it straight to you!
We truly appreciate your support, your faith, your generosity and your big hearts. We're glad to be able to offer you a few perks for your donation. Be sure to check those out on the left side bar!
