Passionate about writing and storytelling, Dekel has has been shooting short films since he was 8 years old. When he was 21, after completing a mandatory three years service in the Israeli Defence Force, he left his home country to live in various cities including Budapest, New York and London before embarking on a trip around the world that spanned five years, reaching such far away places as the North Pole and Mount Everest, returning to London in 2016 to complete a Master of Arts at the London Film School but dropped the program after three months to write direct and produce his debut film 'The Girls Were Doing Nothing'.
Studied Media, Journalism and Human Rights, while volunteering in Save the Children and Greenpeace. Worked at the Bergman Centre Foundation at Fårö, Sweden, managing the public heritage of Ingmar Bergman. Since moving to London Charlotte has been a co-producer at Wardour Filmworks while developing a women’s personal safety device.
Studied Photography at Windsor Boys' and Digital Film Production at Ravensbourne, London, before going on to produce the award-winning short film ‘Maya’, which follows the lives of three street children in Kathmandu, Nepal, and was shot just weeks before the catastrophic earthquake struck in 2015. The team, on hearing the news, cancelled their post-production crowdfunding campaign and instead used the film to raise over two thousand dollars for children in Nepal. 12 months later, the same team, lead by Tom, returned to shoot a second short: ‘Chyanti’, set high in the Himalayas.
