The Israeli identity is attached to my name — even in professional context and commercial circumstances. Therefore, I cannot remain ‘politically silent’.
Inspired by the Palestinian and Jewish activists in Israel-Palestine who have come together to protest the occupation and violence and call for equality and justice, I’m attending a Na’amod rally on Wednesday (19th May 2021 7pm BST) to call for Freedom from Violence, Freedom from Occupation for all in Israel-Palestine.
This, to show solidarity with Palestinians under occupation and to call for an end to the violence inherent in that occupation, from which all in Israel-Palestine suffer.
It is time to amplify and support the Palestinian call to uphold their human and civil rights and end the Israeli occupation — the source to this moral crisis.
We need bold and decisive world leadership based on shared humanity, compassion, and the fundamental belief in the equality of all peoples. When faced with the choice between supporting violence, dispossession and occupation, or any form of segregation on the one hand, and supporting freedom, dignity and human rights for all people, including ‘the other’ — we choose to stand for the latter.
Earlier this week, the Bourne Stuntacular won a VES award for Outstanding Visual Effects in a Special Venue Project. Congratulations to all who took part in this project — in particular, the teams that supported our on-location adventures.
Aviv Yaron had the pleasure of providing extremely high resolution background environment photography, as well as photogrammetry and textures photography, whilst traveling across Morocco and Turkey (pre-Brexit, pre-COVID19).

We cannot anticipate every risk or plan for every contingency, but we can, and must, plan for failure. That means creating an anti-fragile system. A system that can withstand both the risks we see and those we do not…’ Mark Carney / The BBC 2020 Reith Lectures (How We Get What We Value)
Universal Studios Florida’s new stunt show, The Bourne Stuntacular, received a Thea Award for outstanding achievement. I had the privilage of working alongside VFX supervisor Salvador Zalvidea — providing high resolution background environment photography, photogrammetry and textures (locations work across Morocco and Turkey).
On ‘The Bourne Stuntacular’ Aviv Yaron photographed, in both Turkey and Morocco, very high resolution environment and texture elements for a CG background — later, to be projected via a 130 feet (40m) wide and 28 feet (8.5m) tall LED screen, as part of ‘…One of the largest structures ever created for a Universal show…’
