Guy Sadot

The self-proclaimed most disoriented kid in his high school class, Guy Sadot has become a driver of innovation in today’s film industry.


A graduate of the acclaimed Israeli film school Camera Obscura, Sadot has been working for the last two decades as a film director; a process that he insists has been a continuous and never-ending school in and of itself. He draws endless inspiration from his subjects, and is probably one of the few artists who actually thrive on constructive criticism. “Maybe this is one of the strongest aspects of my business,” says Sadot. “Even today, I find myself fascinated with other people’s views, and try to incorporate their perspectives into my work.”


Sadot’s company, Studio FilMill, employs an eclectic assortment of characters and artists who share Sadot’s unique vision and seek to make an impact on the landscape of film. Together they tackle every project – from the business sector to the private – with their own brand of genius, translating the client’s needs into unforgettable works of art. From creating the film’s initial concept, through scripting, producing and ultimately delivering the final unassailable product, Studio FilMill does it all – and does it really, really well.


A dancer at heart, Sadot puts the highest emphasis on rhythm and harmony when shooting a film and the effect is always astonishing and unique. In fact, in April 2015, CNN chose Sadot’s short film, “Become One,” created with Matan Tamarkin for the Israeli Ballroom Dancing Fund, as one of seven ‘Ones to Watch’ for their depiction of impossible dance performances.


How does he do it? Even Sadot isn’t quite sure. “Sometimes, I can’t explain why I’m doing things – I just feel and act intuitively, and only afterwards, someone else is able to explain the theory behind what I knew naturally had to be done,” says Sadot.
