The Big Nothing – Israeli TV show now airing on YES KIDZ Channel

Over the summer, I scored The Big Nothing, the coolest Sci-Fi Comedy TV Series for Yes-Kidz Channel. This concludes my fourth collaboration with writer-director Nir Berger, whom I can only describe as a ROCK STAR and I can’t wait for our next project together. He is A List material. The story of the series: it’s the first intergalactic reality show, taking place in a giant butt-shaped space station. The contestants are aliens, portrayed by puppets, and humans. It’s dark, fast-paced and utterly crazy. If you’re in Israel, catch the 12 episodes of The Big Nothing- airing now on Yes-Kidz and on YES-VOD in-demand.

New Zealand’s Guide To Tessering Performed by the HOLLYWOOD CHAMBER ORCHESTRA

Performed by the Hollywood Chamber Orchestra lead by Mark Robertson, New Zealand’s Guide To Tessering is inspired by A Wrinkle In Time and my adventures when traveling in New Zealand, the piece celebrates the energy of nature, love & hope. As described in the novel by Madeleine L’Engle, Tessering is a form of traveling in the fifth dimension. The colorful musical journey reflects this experience, which transcends temporal and earthly boundaries.
“Stories make us more alive, more human, more courageous, more loving.” – Madeleine L’Engle
