About Alon

I'm an Israeli award-winning writer, director, and producer. Juror at the 43rd annual International Emmy Awards. I'm on the board of directors in the Israel Screenwriters guild and a member of the Israeli Academy of Motion Picture and Television.

I was born in Tel Aviv, Israel. I'm a father for four kids; three daughters and one son. Served in the Air Force, and active volunteer as a field police officer.
I began my career as a graphic designer, amassing 20 years of experience in marketing and advertising.
In 2005, I've decided to make a change in my career and studied cinema. Since then I've written, directed and produced numerous films. I'm the founder of DonkeyShot Film Group, a collective of film and television creators, who aim to promote and strengthen the independent cinema of Israel. DonkeyShot Film Group has produced many short films that have won awards in festivals around the world. I've directed 22 episodes on the Big Brother VIP reality show in 2019 and directed 2 seasons of The teacher of the state show and many more.

My first full-length film, AntiVirus, has also gained worldwide recognition with its many awards from international film festivals. Last year I've released my second film THE COMPOSER a dark Insane parody which was screened in Cannes 71 film festival outside the competition. Participated in the Israeli offir Awards and other film festivals worldwide and won the ASTI awards for the International film competition.

At DonkeyShot, I'm the head of the writer’s room, and we have written a couple of feature films as well as producing and directing the newest feature, The Composer. I was chosen by Steven Lambert to direct the Ninja: The Resurrection and I'm attached to the project.
My main goal is to get into directing TV shows and feature films in North America and Europe.
