After building his aesthetic through many years as a beauty and fashion stills photographer, Israel has turned his skills to crafting beautiful films and commercials.
He delights in finding inspirational images from times gone by and in hunting down the most obscure and intoxicating locations. Israel will row boats, hike into the bush, drive to extremely remote places, walk past ‘no access’ points in collapsing buildings and stumble precariously through his veggie garden in the search of the perfect location.
Israel has recently finished up working with Publicis Mojo directing the latest brand commercial for Air Asia.
The Air Asia commercial is a study in what Israel does best. He has captured the beauty of Asia by shooting at a multitude of locations across three countries in eight days, with no forward recce and only a crew of two.
Watch the Air Asia commercial here.
Taxi’s Executive Producer Andrew Wareham says, “We’re really excited to have Israel join the team at Taxi. He’s a very creative and versatile filmmaker who captures beautiful imagery every time he shoots”.
Miles is a great storyteller with bucket-loads of visual creativity. His work ranges from perfectly-timed comedy performance to nuanced stories with heart.
Miles’ diverse experience in all areas of film, from the grunt work to the technical, allows his work to be well focused and direct. While his deep technical knowledge creates an uncluttered experience for all involved across all aspects of the filmmaking process from start to finish.
