    About Yotam Ishay

    A Berlin based Assistant Director, working for film, television and commercial work.
    I consider my job as a creative part of the production process - helping the producer, the director, and the DoP bring their artistic vision to light, in Pre-production as well as on set.
    I'm always interested in a good script and a challenging, creative project.
