Dani and Stacey met while living in Israel and began working on theater and film projects together. As their artistic relationship grew they moved to New York in order to pursue commercial and film work on a more intense level. They formed WIWU Productions and have a successful commercial production side of their company, creating advertisements and promotional videos for both large and small companies world wide. As both the feature film and commercial branch of the company continue to grow, the company has formed partnerships with talented artists in all aspects of film production and is always looking to meet new and skilled film professionals to grow their network.
COMMERCIAL. PROMO. INDUSTRIAL.
We have a strong eye for creating visually compelling commercials for our corporate clients. We specialize in 30-90 second ads which promote your product or company in an attractive way to a wide audience. Please contact us with any questions or proposals. We are here to work with you and create the best promotional video for your company. Our clients include both large and small world wide brands and we can work with any budget or timeframe.
We currently have three major feature film projects on our slate: The first is a film we are writing currently titled 'The Other Side' which explores the Hasidic community in South Brooklyn living right next door to a very alternative/hipster community. The second is a documentary about young American Jews who leave their lives behind to move to Israel and join the Israeli Defense Force. The third is a feature film based on a short we made, which won acclaim at international film festivals, about the Israeli youth movement.
