'It was an absolute pleasure to work with Yoav on the title sequence for our documentary series. I hope it will be the first of many times we get to work together. He immediately grasped the overarching thesis of the series and created a title sequence that spoke to and accentuated the key themes we were trying to explore. The end result was something that gave our series coherency, style and impact. Yoav worked with speed, creativity and efficiency. On top of being that, he created a warm and relaxed working environment.'
Guy Horlock, Rise Films
'Yoav is a brilliant creative and I am delighted to be working with him on a number of projects. He has the fantastic ability to have big picture thinking whilst knowing how to apply it within project scope and budget, and still produce something market-leading. I cannot recommend him enough. Most importantly, you have a lot of fun working on the project along the way!'
Maria Ure, Prince's Trust International
'Yoav produced and directed a fantastic film for us at Comic Relief to document and celebrate the achievements of our £22m 'Fighting Malaria, Improving Health' partnership with GSK. He was such a brilliant person to work with. He responded really clearly to the brief, worked at great pace and with clear vision and direction at all times. He kept us in line and on course for delivery to deadline- not always easy with so many internal stakeholders- but his clear, concise way of working enabled us to work really effectively and collaboratively, and ultimately to produce a film we are all really proud of.'
Lucie Graham, Comic Relief

Paul Arad, Managing Director, Acrylicize
'Yoav is a hugely talented and creative video director and storyteller. He created a film about a major new investment for external and internal audiences, which encapsulated a corporate narrative about technology and automation and the human story of our commitment to jobs and the North East region. It was a complex job involving drones, animation, archive and employee interviews conducted in a controlled environment. The end result was simply brilliant. We could not have been happier.'

It's a wicked blend to add to his storytelling skills and film making talent. He made us a stunning film and I loved working with him.'
Guy Pattison, Stronger Stories
‘All too often we receive an unwelcome barrage of negative press about young people. It’s therefore refreshing and inspiring to watch this lm, and be reminded that up and down the country there are young people who are triumphing above adversity, and grabbing opportunities for self-expression, personal growth, and real achievement. And what a powerful reminder too, of the power of arts and culture – a great film!’
Althea Efunshile, then Deputy Chief Executive, Arts Council England on 'Irons in the Fire'
‘The film resonated with me because I recognised things that I went through. It’s important these stories get out there.’
Idris Elba, Narrator, ‘Irons in the Fire’
"Working with Yoav has been an absolute pleasure. We first collaborated on the short film "Irons in the Fire", which I cherish for its integrity and positive outlook. Yoav's clarity of vision and ability to execute made it a very rewarding experience... Yoav always brings good tidings!"

His gave us reasonable options and helped us make the right choices. In the end, the video was delivered on time, and was as effective as we hoped it would be. I look forward to working with Yoav again'

‘Yoav has a big-picture vision to imagine genuinely groundbreaking projects and the producing raw abilities to make them happen. He’s also a wonderful energising influence – a confident communicator and charming company.’
Mervyn Millar, WarHorse
‘This RightsInfo package is ingenious to me. A series of overlapping, semi-transparent color blocks, all of which form a delicate interdependent circle. It’s the perfect embodiment of a tenuous social contract. For the animation, the stacked layers are used to show strength, when stripping them away signals danger. The woodblock-style illustrations are chunky enough to carry hefty presence but are animated with a lithe sensibility.’
