Don't be a stranger!
Born and raised in Tel-Aviv, Israel, at the age of 3 Oran asked her parents to build her a pink stage in the middle of her bedroom. Not surprisingly, that was the first step towards an acting career that ended a few years after she graduated from Beit-Zvi, school of the Performing Arts.
In Israel, Oran worked as an actress in multiple TV series, films, and plays, but as she spent more and more of her time trying to direct her directors, she found that her creative vision was better suited behind the camera.
In 2018, Oran received her Masters as a directing fellow from the world-renowned American Film Institute Conservatory.
Her thesis short, Marriage Material, was the first Musical film made at the AFI Conservatory and a Student Academy Award finalist.
Oran is now based in Los Angeles but misses Tel-Aviv’s beautiful beaches every weekend…
Growing up in an Israeli-Greek-Polish family has inspired her to look for the comedic perspective in dark and often tragic themes. Her short Musical film, Marriage Material is distributed by Fox Searchlight and after being in development at Quibi as a short-form series is now being adapted into a feature film with Chernin Entertainment and Endeavor Content producing.
Her parent's most recent pride is for her decision to finally freeze her eggs.
Oran is attached to direct a sequel of the classic movie TROOP BEVERLY HILLS (TriStar). She has a few other projects in various stages of development, one of which is TROUBLE, set up at Iron Ocean Films, with Oran directing and co-writing the script with Tamara Chestna (Moxie, Netflix).
Oran is repped by WME and Industry Entertainment.
