About

Merav Maroody, a set photographer and an art magazine chief editor (Ms.Use art and sexuality magazine), has been working in the last 7 years on various film productions in the U.S. Europe, and Israel. While working on a small Hollywood production in Los Angeles, fresh out of school, she was discovered by one of Sony pictures’ producers and for the next five year she would be one of Sony’s top five set photographers in Europe.

Throughout her career she have had the chance to work alongside talented DOP’s including Douglas Milsome
( “The shining”, “Full Metal Jacket” ) and actors including David Hasselhof, Jean-Claude Van DammeStephen Rea and more.

Maroody’s experience with working on film productions, has laid the way for her to start developing her own personal film ideas. For the last 3 years, she is living in Berlin, and besides taking pictures of actors and sets, she is developing her first feature film script as well as writing and directing a webisode dealing with the recent emigration of Israelis to Berlin.
