URI LOTAN

Uri’s work possesses a depth that stems from his experience working with Pixar, Disney and Sony Picture Imageworks and the naïveté that comes with exploring new formats and mediums. “I like a challenge,” he says, “Most of my recent work has been in feature-length films, but I like the experimentation that comes with directing something more personal, or even something more explicitly commercial. It pushes me out of my comfort zone.” This experimentation has allowed Uri to construct smart, detail-driven narratives, such as the critically-acclaimed music video Ma’agalim, which cleverly distill the story’s essence in a few seconds or minutes.
