Raviv’s showbiz career got its start because he was the only one of Maurice’s children who could be talked into acting in the short films that Maurice was assigned to shoot for his filmmaking class. They both enjoyed that experience so much that they decided to collaborate on a bigger/longer project the following summer, and Chimera thus came to life as a passion project for a father to spend more time with his son.

Raviv’s involvement with Chimera began when that his Dad, Maurice, began writing the outline for the script in his screenwriting class. Raviv (and his siblings) carefully read each iteration of logline, outline, and treatment, and pored over every nuance in every draft to give Maurice detailed notes and helped shape the story.

Raviv is now a sophomore at a New England boarding school, where he enjoys climbing, hiking, skateboarding and biking.
