Greetings my name is Ilai Amir producer   |   director   |   editor

ABOUT ME

I am a freelance film producer, director and editor based in Auckland, New Zealand.

My portfolio includes both fiction and documentary films, as well as music videos and online video production. I am passionate about creating my own work, as well as enabling people to develop their own voice through my role as a producer. I also freelance in other production-based roles.

My recent work as a producer includes Balloons, a 20-minute short film directed by Michael Hurst, and the short documentaries Bitter Sweet and Lions, both of which were selected to screen as part of the New Zealand International Film Festival 2016. I am currently in pre-production on a NZ Film Commission short, Sail Away.

I have edited most of the film projects I have produced and directed, as well as worked as a freelance editor. I am proficient with the Adobe suite (Premiere Pro, After Effects) & Avid.

In 2012 I co-founded Votre Arme, a multi-disciplinary production company based in Auckland, New Zealand. Before that I cut my teeth as a Producer and Digital Manager contributing to the development of The Outlook for Someday, New Zealand's sustainability short film challenge for young people of which I now serve as a trustee.
