Hayelala - Getting Older (Official Video)


After finishing my mandatory military service, I went backpacking for a year with my best friend (and cinematographer), Roy Maayan.
With my beloved Canon 6D camera, we travelled to India, Nepal, Burma and Thailand and fell in love with the landscapes, people and cultures we encountered.
We felt a deep need to translate our life changing experiences into a personal, visual creation. There was no better way to do so than making a music video for the amazing band “Hayelala”.
Their song describes exactly what we felt as we came back home - "Getting Older".

Directed, shot & edited by Roy Maayan and Matan Portnoy.
Colorist: Michael Mizrachi.
