Oren Peli Bio/Wiki 2018

Israeli-born American film director and screenwriter, best known as the creator/director of Paranormal Activity,Oren Peli has an estimated net worth of $22.7 million. Oren Peli moved to America from Israel when he was 19. An intensive studier of animation and graphic design, he worked on game titles to pay the invoices, but actually needed to direct and edit feature films, so he made it happen. In 2009, he shot some inspiration from The Blair Witch Project and made his own first person-style horror movie, Paranormal Action. The funding was just about $15,000, but Peli used his abilities as a filmmaker and editor to create terrifying suspense, so much so that crowds who caught the film during its first, small release, created a huge buzz, full of narratives about theatres full of crying patrons.

1I didn't know if it was going to be good or going to be crap. Just on the chance it turned out good, I went for the extra expense and got a high-def camera. -- on Paranormal Activity (2007)
2No one can have the resources to do that on their own without the infrastructure and the funds of a studio. -- on filmmakers' need for studios or distributors to get their film in theaters
3Personally I like the slow burn; I don't think there is anything wrong with it. When I think about the movies that were most effective on me as a viewer I think of the original Haunting and the Exorcist, Rosemary's Baby, the Sixth Sense, the Others. These movies are not over the top at all, they are movies that rely on good story telling, good acting, good premise, good exposition and I want to stay true to that in future projects. -- when asked about his "preferred brand of horror"
1Emigrated to the US from Israel at the age of 19.
2Studied graphics and animations.
