Waltz with Bashir, 2008. Animated documentary feature film written, produced and directed by Ari Folman.

This is where we met. David headed the production design, Michael was recruited straight out of art school to help with the drawings (and ended up drawing quite a chunk), Roiy did the visual effects and compositing for the whole thing. 
It was a thrill to work on the first full length animated feature that was produced in Israel, it felt like a bold edventure but none of us expected the splash that the movie made on the international scene.

 

Waltz with Bashir Premiered at Cannes Film Festival and has won a Golden Globe Award for Best Foreign Language Film an NSFC Award for Best Film, a César Award for Best Foreign Film and an IDA Award for Feature Documentary, and was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film.
