Schnitzel (Hebrew: שניצל) is a short, sci-fi, and comedy Israeli film which was written, produced and directed by Asaf Epstein and stars Neveh Tzur, Olga Bardukov, Arik Mishali, Nir Malik and Adi Feldman.[1]



An extraterrestrial visitor from outer space lands in a supermarket and decides to take the form of a schnitzel. Kobi Zucker (Neveh Tzur), a young teenage boy, is challenged by his love interest, Maya Kaplinski (Olga Bardukov), to retrieve something for her from within the supermarket. Craziness ensues when Kobi enters the supermarket and is confronted with "Schnitzel" the alien.



Schnitzel was produced in Israel across 4 major locations. Interior shots of the supermarket were filmed in Hatzor HaGlilit while exterior shots were shot at Mishmar HaSharon. Other scenes such as that of the country road were shot in Ga'ash. Studio production was rendered in Tel-Aviv.[1]

Original score was written and produced for the film by Amit Poznansky.

The film also made use of CGI to create the character of "Schnitzel" the alien which was then blended in with live-action scenes.
