Greetings my name is Ilai Amar producer   |   director   |   editor

ABOUT ME

I am a freelance creative film and agency producer based in Auckland, New Zealand.

My portfolio includes both dramatic and documentary short films, music videos as well as a large collection of work for some of NZ's biggest brands through my agency producing.

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 post-production on a NZ Film Commission short film, Sail Away.

I am passionate about developing and producing great creative work and supporting the artists around me to develop their voice through my role as a producer.

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.
