So proud of our co-founder Daniela Mendelsohn! Featured today by Nefesh B'Nefesh talking about her Aliyah (immigration to Israel) story 😎

#WhyImadeAliyah with docyourstory
📸: Lisa Rich Photography
Why did you make Aliyah?
I grew up in a very Zionistic home. Israel was a central part of our lives and it always felt like a second home for me. I remember as a little kid that at the end of every family trip to Israel, on our way to Ben Gurion airport, I would feel this sadness, as if I was leaving a part of me behind. But life would go back to normal once I was home in New York and in my routine, enjoying life in the city.
10 years ago, when my entire family moved to Israel(parents, siblings, little nieces and nephews) I wasn’t ready to make the move yet, but it definitely set the wheels in motion. Saying goodbye became more and more difficult and the distance between us felt even greater. Once I got married I decided to finally move “home” and here I am, happily living the dream.
What’s your favorite thing about living in Israel?
I feel like my quality of life has increased greatly since moving to Israel. While there is no place like NY, I love the pace of life inTel Aviv. The beaches, the food, the people and most of all the attitude towards work-life balance. In Israel you are a “freier” if you don’t take advantage of every last vacation day to travel the world or spend time with your loved ones. And the last thing you want to be is a “freier” so I try my best to take advantage of time off!
Challenges you have overcome, advice you would like to give.
Being an immigrant is challenging, especially when the language and culture is foreign. Starting my business @docyourstory, navigating bureaucratic institutions, even going to the local grocery store all become tremendous learning experiences. I like to say that “every day is my ulpan” asI put myself out there, often sounding a bit ridiculous, but trying my best to connect and communicate. More often than not the Israelis I encounter will laugh at my mistakes but at the same time they appreciate my best efforts. And without fail every embarrassment results in my learning another Hebrew word or phrase and a great story of utter humiliation that always seems to entertain my family and friends a bit too much.

We are very excited to be featured as part of the #israelporchraits project! We figured this is also a great time to re introduce ourselves 👋 and tell you what we’ve been up to during the Covid pandemic 💚 (📷: @lisarichphotography).
.
Hey there! We’re Daniela Mendelsohn and Keren Greenberg, co founders of docyourstory. We are a boutique video production company working with companies (large and small), freelancers, entrepreneurs and non-profits, creating engaging video content that showcases who they are and what they do.
.
Having started our company in NYC almost five years ago we then relocated to Tel Aviv where we launched docyourstory Israel! We continue to work on both sides of the ocean and handle all elements of the production, from creative development to filming and editing. We are passionate storytellers and love working with our clients on crafting the best narrative to take their brand to the next level. Through our documentary style of filming we create videos that showcase brands in a unique and authentic way, helping them create a real connection with their audience. And, most importantly, we love to have fun and make the process enjoyable for everyone!
.
Covid definitely impacted us since so much of what we do happens in person. All of our film shoots in New York and Israel were either cancelled or postponed. As life begins to open up in Israel we are starting to get out and film again which feels great and we look forward to eventually getting back to NY!
.
In addition to an exciting “passion project” we have been working on that we hope to release in the fall, we are also coming up with new and creative ways to help clients continue to create video content during these unusual times. The pandemic has required us to get creative, think outside the box and find ways to help our clients continue to generate video content. We have some new projects on the horizon and are looking forward to being out in the world, filming, hanging out with our clients and breathing in the fresh (and hopefully corona-free) air!

Aleph VC

Excited to finally be able to share our latest collaboration with Aleph VC! Working with their amazing team (shout out to the talented Erica Marom !!) we will be profiling inspirational founders and the stories behind the incredible companies they've built.

Watch now to hear Ami Daniel's story @Windward and stay tuned for more… ✨

It takes more than a great idea to be a great entrepreneur. It’s about courage, it’s about vulnerability, it’s about spirit. It is a profound mission to take the road less travelled and leave your indelible mark on the map. It is the rare breed who can take the idea a thousand steps further and execute a new reality.
We are excited to announce Aleph DreamBuilders, our founders’ voice and vision on film. First up is Ami Daniel, CEO and co-founder of Windward, whose childhood on the shore sparked a technology that makes the seas safer and helps the global maritime ecosystem thrive.

Optimize your videos for social: 2-3 min profile videos are great for your website and live event presentations but when sharing on social media our recommendation is to keep it short and simple 👌

Repurposing your footage from a longer video to create a 30-60 second spot for social is a great way to get more bang for your buck AND achieve higher engagement.

To see what we mean, check out this 60 second video for the inspirational @gural_jcc whose incredible programs enhance the lives of so many... Plus those preschool kids are too cute 💚
