*I need an actor around October 2020-March 2021 for a 2 or 3 days shooting. The character in the (feature) movie is British so if you can just make this accent and you are not from the UK it will also be good.
If you come around that time to Israel I can host and feed you as long as you need if you will be ready to act for 2-3 days in my movie!
*If you are a filmmaker or any other type of "creator" and up for collaborations contact me - I am always up to collaborations!*
Overall quite positive guy, currently living in Tel Aviv originally from many cities in Israel:)
Writing a book and have plans to make a film based on it.
Get very inspired by films that have their unique atmosphere and music, or sociological/philosophical meaning.
Programmer in a neurosciense lab and learning cinema , sociology, economy (only specific topics) and philosophy at Tel Aviv University (for my book and films).
When I'm not learning/working I'm doing sports and music,
and of course hangouts on weekends with the lads
Love to talk about random meaningless things, or about serious deep shit like politics philosophy society films books sports et cetera
- Information for the host -
I am very clean, nice, super indipendened and respectfull, not noisy, don't need anything special, and vegan (in case you love to cook, maybe it's important to note, I am not sure)
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
I am planning a big trip through Western and Eastern Europe and deep in Russia (yeah like Norilsk), in specific locations, for physical inspiration for my book/script
I want to meet new people from different cultures or just different perspectives and knowledge, but the main idea is just experiencing and weave good memories and relationships
Plus it will be a good idea to experience the area I am visiting through a local's point of view

Teach, Learn, Share
Learn German and French, Try to learn as much as I can about popular culture in the UK, France and Germany (mostly),
If you know Russian very well and can help me with analyzing some Russian poetry I am struggling with, it will be so awesome
Can- tell about history of Israel or Russia (especially if I host you :) ) share ideas and thaughts, maybe good tips for random things if you got stuck somewhere in Israel, can teach Hebrew and Russian.
