ABOUT

Ari_Profile_03.jpg

Ari was one of those kids making movies with his dad’s video camera when he was 12. Not much has changed, but the films are arguably better now.

 

A couple of decades (and a bit) on, Ari is the co-creator and director of the hugely popular web series SuzelleDIY and the sensational TV series Tali’s Wedding Diary, with a host of awards, nominations and broken viewership records between them. Both productions epitomise his impeccable comic timing and talent for creating memorable characters.

We’ve only just met but boy we’re excited about Talya Galasko. She matches a fresh and bold visual style with a hands-on approach, a meticulous eye for detail and a proclivity for dry humour that make her a perfect fit at Sketchbook.

 

Talya’s infectious energy and sharp wit comes through in her work. Experience as a copywriter is evident in the clarity of her writing and her knack for narrative. She’s ambitious, she’s driven, she’s funny and we know she is going places.
