It’s always a pleasure to receive some positive feedback, so I thought I would post these two recent comments on my work:
“Nadaav creates beautiful, moving videos, often under tight budget and timeline constraints. He is always a pleasure to work with.”
Katerina Barry, Design Lead, White & Case
“Nadaav’s ability to juggle multiple projects was unlike any I’ve seen before and made a dramatic difference in the productivity level of our team. He puts passion into each and every project and without exception the resulting outputs are all of the highest quality.”
Paul Curtis, Film Photography & Animation Lead, Transport for London
Thank you both for such kind words.
Thank you so much to all our backers on Kickstarter and to everyone who shared and posted about the project. Thanks to you we not only successfully reached our funding goal, we exceeded it by 25%. The project is now greenlit and we are currently casting, hiring a few additional key crew members, working on locations and developing effects. We are also working on the rewards that you have chosen.
“Just Do It” – I never really understood the power of that Nike slogan till now.
Sometimes things don’t feel like opportunities. That job or task that you’re sure you couldn’t do but wish you could for example. In Britain especially, we are so used to being honest and modest that we turn down opportunities before we even realise that’s what they were – opportunities.
Recently I was offered a very scary, exciting opportunity.
An intense month!
Thank you so much to everyone who backed Sound Asleep on Kickstarter. It was a challenging, fun and emotional month as we raised awareness and funds for the project. We ran massive scale pillow fights, sleep-overs and parties and were featured on TV, in newspapers and blogs. The film raised 125% of its funding target on Kickstarter – an amazing achievement and we are indebted to our supporters.Read More
Crowdfunding for Sound Asleep short film comedy
Have you ever had one of those nights where you just can’t sleep?
We all have. I certainly have, so I wrote a film about it. And I’d love for you to get involved. Take a look at the project on kickstarter – there are some pretty quirky rewards. I could write loads more about it, but I tell it better:
Wow! We launched our Kickstarter campaign with a massive pillow fight!
Sound Asleep is a short comedy about insomnia. And the very best fun you can have when you are stuck in bed and can’t sleep is a pillow fight. Or at least the most fun thing we are allowed to talk about here! So we hit trafalgar square with a ton of pillows to launch our kickstarter campaign.
And Wow! I think that might be the best kickstarter launch ever! Several thousand people bashing each other with pillows in central London. There was a samba band (Barking Bateria), lots of pyjamas and some amazing outfits.
Brand Films and Training Videos for the UK’s biggest brands
It’s been a busy month – working with DRP to direct films for some of Britain’s best known brands, including luxury cars at Jaguar and high-end SUVs at Land Rover. It’s a return to luxury brands for me, having previously worked with Gucci, but the first time I’ve made car films; so much fun, albeit a little different for this committed cyclist!
