With a passion for film since he was a young whipper snapper, Raphael Elisha studied film the moment he left school, then set his sights on the advertising world. He saw something intriguing in the high production values of the TVC market and wanted deeply to be part of it all.
With a couple of big wins at Cannes, Tropfest and the Urban Music awards under his belt, Raphael has continued to develop and hone his skills as a director, attempting each time to try something new, to come to each project with a different perspective and to push the proverbial envelope. He favours quirky comedy and is best at drawing memorable character performances out of his actors. He treats his work with a lot of planning and a lot of attention to detail. Raphael believes that when creating a world within a world, every attempt should be made to make that world as unique and intriguing as possible.
