Don't be a stranger!
Oran Zegman is an Israeli filmmaker based in Los Angeles.
Growing up in an Israeli-Greek-Polish family has fueled her passion for finding the comedic perspective in dark and often tragic subject matters, and built her unorthodox humorous storytelling.
In 2018, Oran received her Masters as a directing fellow from the world-renowned American Film Institute where she was awarded a two-year scholarship.
Her thesis film, MARRIAGE MATERIAL, is the first Musical produced by the American Film Institute Conservatory in its 51 years of existence and is now beginning its festivals circuit.
In Israel, Oran worked as an actress in multiple TV series, films, and theatre shows. She graduated from Beit-Zvi, school of the Performing Arts, where two years in a row she was granted an America-Israel foundation scholarship for a promising actress and high achievement.
Oran’s short films REBEL and PINEAPPLE BOXERS have been official selections of various film festivals worldwide, winning “Best film Script” for the latter at Cinephone Film Festival.
She is currently prepping two projects; HAPPY-HOME; a musical TV series about an institute which trains love-impaired misfits to match with their ideal partners. The series follows a diverse group of women and explores how much one is willing to sacrifice for a chance at love. She is also working on her debut feature film which is based on the Israeli bestseller, THE PERFECT IDIOT. The story explores the absurdity of people who follow the herd just to fit in, even when that means following false and often idiotic gurus.
Oran is repped by Industry Entertainment in both Los Angeles and New-York
