My name is Zev
I was introduced to deviantART
by a friend and have since that day have fallen in love
with deviantART and its community
I am currently the Community Volunteer for the Film & Animation galleries.
At the age of 14 while working on a robotics team, Zev found his passion for filmmaking. After learning how to build a robot, he learned how to film the robots and the team behind it. This first incredible experience propelled Zev into the film industry where in three years he has worked on over 60 film sets.
Zev has worked as a director of photography, assistant cameraman, gaffer, key grip and editor on a wide variety of films including feature films, short films, live concert films, and commissioned advertisements. These films have included A Bet’s a Bet, In Our Nature, Persephone, and a live concert performed by numerous singer/songwriters lead by Peter Paul & Mary in memory of their bassist, Dick Kniss.
In 2012, Zev directed The Symbol of Peace, a short documentary that was part of the official selection of numerous film festivals including the Austin Film Festival. After his success in Austin where the screenings were sold out, he quickly moved to create The Visual Narrative Project, a project that involved more than seven different countries in search for a script to create into a short film. After finding an incredible script he fundraised a budget and will be shooting in mid-October of 2013.
Zev successfully competed for a position in, and attended, the prestigious NYU Tisch Summer Film Program in Dublin, Ireland. He then attended and will be graduating from Bard College at Simon's Rock in 2014 at which point, Zev will move to New York City and will be available full-time.
Zev's passion for the natural beauty of the world is apparent in his minimal editing approach in photography. His still images include portraits, nature photography, urban photography, and photojournalism. Zev has worked as a photographer in professional settings, including weddings and film sets.For more details about what Zev is doing, please check out his Website
