Producing & Filmmaking
Hey friend, I’m Edan (ee-dahn) Jacob Levy, a filmmaker, producer, writer, and actor. I’m blessed and grateful for being able to tell stories, collaborate and make meaningful projects with exceptionally profound and unique artists. I collaborate in various ways, platforms, and mediums across continents. I’m currently based in Tel Aviv, Israel, after living, studying, and working in New York City between 2010 and 2021.
I enjoy being a part of stories where the conscious and subconscious mind meet; creating a surreal world where the “rules” of reality can be bent, and familiar conceptions questioned. Stories that unlock and expand on the many mysteries and layers of the subconscious mind, stories that reflect the human experience through a surreal world where reality is a mere suggestion, or reflection of our own filtered, existential mind. Stories that ultimately shine a light in the dark of this being human.
I am a committed and dedicated producer to every artist I work with. I like the challenge and reward of the indie cinematic world and how to integrate the creator’s vision and storytelling within the limits of the production without risking artistic integrity. Also, I like problem solving...
Check out some of my work below, and thanks for stopping by.
