Jonah Bekhor

AFI Conservatory - Class of '07

The only student member selected to join AFI’s Digital Content Lab, dedicated to forward-thinking media concepts.

Bekhor first experimented with digital content in 2005, working on an interactive Web campaign for Brawny with the Fallon Agency.

“I collaborated on a series of interactive comedy webisodes, which ignited my interest in new media,” says Bekhor, who enrolled at AFI a year later. He became heavily involved with the school’s Digital Content Lab after MTV, Electronic Arts and Mekanism approached the group with a challenge: re-define nonfiction video-based storytelling in the age of digital media.

“They wanted to explore how to make a multiplatform, interactive, living documentary experience that evolves and is nourished by a community of users,” he explains. “Part of the goal was to connect with younger people who don’t typically watch documentaries and create a community for videogame players.”

While in school, Bekhor hatched “Egg Love,” an award-winning online short, with classmate Zach Math. Since graduation, he has been working independently to create a digital content curriculum for AFI and last year created and moderated its Digital Content seminar.
