Meet the Crew: Co-Developer and Co-Director Jessica Naftaly

Hello. So, who are you and how did you become involved with 'After Oil'? 

Hey! I’m Jessica Naftaly the co-creator and co-director of ‘After Oil’. This project started when thesis year was approaching and Shai and I decided we wanted to collaborate on something. We went back and forth about a few ideas, from developing a horror short or a webseries, but our biggest draw was that we wanted to do something long term. We wanted whatever we did for our thesis to have a life outside of school. Eventually, we kept coming back to the idea of ‘After Oil’ and that excitement made the choice so easy. We both come from novel writing so the promise of world building and long form storytelling that came with ‘After Oil’ encompassed all we could have wanted. From then on, it’s been everything and more to develop this world, these characters, and this story!
