Oz developed his love for film, teaching himself principles of filmmaking and long form storytelling during a decade long career as a high school teacher. He formally made the leap to become a Director in mid-2015.
As a teenager his creative passion was music, however, upon completing university he realised he did not wish to experience fame at any level. He left hopes of a career in music behind him. Instead he executed his ‘if music fails’ plan and studied to become high school teacher.
His passion for long form narrative drama drove him to bypass creating short films and jump straight into Finding Fatimah, his writing and directing feature debut.
