As an emerging Writer and Director and a graduate of the prestigious Victorian College of the Arts in Melbourne, Oran draws from a colourful history, having lived in Israel, New Zealand, Australia and the U.S.

Oran places great importance on the actor-director relationship.  His films are strongly performance driven, bringing to life the unseen moments and always seeking beauty in the deceivingly mundane and ordinary. 

His award-winning films have screened in film festivals around the world including FlickerFest, Short of the Week, London Lift-Off, the UK Jewish International Film Festival, and the International Jewish Film Festival of Australia, among others. In 2015, Oran was shortlisted for the Lexus / Sydney Film Festival short film fellowship.

Oran is currently developing a number of short form and feature length projects.
