“Transfixing” is how the shortoftheweek.com editor described Eran Hilleli’s film ‘Between Bears’ when he listed it in his top 10 of 2011. Not alone in accolades, ‘Between Bears’ was one of the most noted pieces of contemporary animation in 2010 – perhaps best recognised by taking out ‘Best Animation’ at the inaugural Vimeo Awards in New York. We are duly proud to announce that Eran has joined XYZ in 2011 for worldwide commercial representation.
A graduate from Bezalel Academy of Art and Design, Hilleli’s directing style is evocative yet defined by simplicity. He has a great appreciation for pieces that leave space for the audience to fill and feel. As with his other works (‘Three and a Half Seconds About Life’, ‘Knowledge of the Cone’ and ‘Inside/Out’), Hilleli employs minimalism with an incredibly strong design aesthetic driven by haunting story telling. Already noted across the blogosphere on Motionographer, Shots and Stash we very much look forward to working with Eran and our clients to create some truly amazing campaigns.
