Izzy (Isidore) Abrahami passed away on April 1st, 2013.
We worked together since 1988. In 1993 Robert Stel joined us, and we created Chee-Ka-Chee bv.
All these years we liked to tell personal stories in a very wide context, so our documentaries seemed to touch people far and wide. Broadcasters saw the relevance of our programs years after they’ve been produced; our programs are still invited to festivals and special screenings; and we get requests to purchase our documentaries via this web site almost daily.
Our documentaries are broadcast all over the world, in countries such as the USA, Norway, Sweden, Belgium, Germany, Austria, Spain, Portugal, Italy, Israel and Japan. A number of our documentaries also won awards in festivals in the USA, Spain, Monaco, Italy and Bulgaria.
Besides, we've written a number of feature-film scripts, developed a sit-com (commissioned by Endemol, Germany) and independently produced a 22 min. romantic comedy, an experimental film.
On top of all that, we've also invented a word-game, which was produced as a board game by Ravensburger. This game was also developed as a television and a Teletext game and as such it was broadcast by RTL in Holland in 1995. Currently in development as an educational TV game show as well as an Internet game site.
In 2003 we opened a new production line of fiction films for theatrical release, called Abrahami-Netz Productions. The first film was the romantic road movie comedy ‘A Bend in the Road.’
In the new company ANTV I try to keep Izzy's spirit and bursting creativity, alive.
