Pausa Production House was founded by Ronit and Yigal Ohanna. The creative couple moved from Tel Aviv to the north of Israel in 2005 where they decided to consolidate all of their talents into one production house that would serve as a creative umbrella for cinema, music, theatre and production.
Ronit Ohanna | Co-Founder, Head of Theatre, Writing and Stage field
director, writer, theatre and creative writing workshop facilitator.
I’ve always searched for ways to express myself. I studied theatre at the Kibbutzim College of Education, Technology and the Arts, where I felt right at home. The theatre opened up an entire world of creativity for me in which I could experiment, explore, get lost, get found, collaborate with others and just creative. To me, the theatre isn’t just a skill or a craft. It’s a tool with which one can undergo individual, collective and communal processes. The theatre meets the individual at their lowest and highest. It reflects reality and also helps shape reality. It echoes onto its surrounding and brings people from different walks of life together.
The theatre is deeply rooted in our lives. Dramatic acting is natural, it is part of an individual’s growth and development in the early years of their development, and in one way or another, later in life as well. We portray ourselves on the stage of life, and improvise all the time according to the circumstances.
Yigal Ohanna | Co-Founder, CEO, Creative Director
film director, screenwriter, theater and film actor, musician, lecturer and teacher, co-owner of Pausa Production House.
I’ve been professionally involved in stage and musical productions since the age of 14. I started out acting and singing as a youth, later enlisting to the Israel Army Band. It was there I fell in love with the technological side of the music world and started my first home recording studio.
I’ve always had a hard time committing to one trade. After investing countless hours into thinking, learning, specializing and exploring different creative fields, I discovered the world of video, which miraculously combined my love for drama, writing, directing and music. Despite my devotion to this field, every once in a while, I get a craving for acting, singing, writing a new play, recording an interesting EP, and even developing and launching new ideas.

Producer, Director, Creative thinking
In everything I do I am seeking the perfect harmony. The thing that unites needs, aspirations, the right measure, budget, relationships, freedom and the natural connection to karma. I also bring the same values to our daily work at “Pausa Production House”.
I like to meet a client who fulfills his ambitions, and loves to manage a process where everyone involved enjoys creativity, pleasant work, professionalism, and a perfect result.
Galit Bork | Project Manager (Films & Video)
Producer of TV, movies and digital.
I have always been looking for challenges and I love being in the field and feeling the energies of the piece.
As a lead and actual producer of prime-time television and network content, I have co-produced reality shows, children’s shows, documentaries, comedies, promotional films and promos. I got to get excited, laugh, cry, act in wonderful places in the country and in the world and work with people who have become a family.
I love my job and I bring that love to every project I produce. Along with adhering to schedules and budget, I am mentally and emotionally involved in all stages from the raw idea to the final product, and do everything to find creative solutions and give the team peace and space for professional and creative work. I am proud of all the works I have been privileged to be a part of and am already looking forward to the next project.
Dan Erez | Creative Director (Films & Video)
Director, screenwriter, stills photographer and creative man
I have quite a few sides that make up who I am.
A very developed visual side that always seeks to find beauty in every moment and in every frame.
A sensitive party looking to hear the story and emotion behind the face and words.
A professional and reliable party that seeks to produce products at a high level, in a responsible and diligent manner.
A humorous side that sees life as it is, with a lot of ups and downs and also quite a few compromises.
A side that listens learns and develops from every experience and every challenge that stands in the way.
A creative side that seeks every moment to express itself in an original, innovative and special way.
And a party that is happy in part and grateful for all that is and all that will come
Alon Ohana | Our home producer of the music field
musical producer, composer, arranger, programmer, keyboard player, recording studio owner and sound design lecturer at Kinneret College on the Sea of Galilee.
I started out at Neto Studios – an analog studio founded in the early 90s in Petah Tikva. There I produced several albums for up-and-coming artists and helmed progressive rock project “Face No. 5” with Tal Lev – a complex production that featured a children’s choir, a narrator, bells, an accordion, a philharmonic orchestra string quartet, multiple musicians and one Avi Singolda.
And many more good freelancers who have been working closely with us for many years…
