About Noam - Director/Producer

IMG_1887.jpg

I’m a National Geographic Explorer and independent filmmaker. Between hanging off of rock faces and shooting in deep mud, I run my own production company that focuses on independent cinema, commercial brand work and virtual reality projects. My academic background in international development and conflict tends to find a way into my work, and many of my projects take a human and cultural lens to storytelling. My first documentary short "Running Across California" premiered with Outside Online and Maine Outdoor Film Festival, and was featured on National Geographic through the "Women of Impact" campaign. My latest documentary short "My Dear Kyrgyzstan" pre-screened at the historic TCL Chinese Theater in Los Angeles and will have its festival world premiere at Big Sky Documentary Film Festival. I’ve participated in the Ignite programming at the Sundance Film Festival and in the Adventure Filmmaker Workshop at Banff Mountain Film Festival, and my affiliations include the Video Consortium (chapter lead in the Bay Area), Cinefemme, and Women in Media. I am driven by unassuming people doing the unique and incredible, whether they're a director, editor or a character in a story.

Some media outlets and brands I’ve worked with are National Geographic, Smithsonian Channel (CBS & Showtime), The North Face, Adidas/Terrex, and Google.

But even if I had climbed all the summits in the world, by every possible route, I would still not know everything about this world that I love. I shall always be on my way for there shall always be something new
