In 1993 the Kamer family decided to move to the city of Tel Aviv, as Nimrod was getting more and more involved in the local culture and cinematic scene in spite of his young age.

Israeli Army

In the Israeli Army (2000-2003) Kamer was released as a first-sergeant, after serving three years at the Barak Armored Brigade. During his service Kamer got some high attention across the army due to a humorous email letter [1] he sent to the Ramatcal (Chief of staff) of the IDF on March 2002, informing him of his concerns from future earthquakes in the Golan Heights (where Kamer's base was at) and from active geysers he allegedly spotted in the area. The letter was spread throughout the IDF and is considered to be the first ever spam email message sent over 'Tsahal-Net' (The IDF internal network).

The Move to Jerusalem

After his Army period, in February 2003, Kamer moved to live in the city of Jerusalem, to learn philosophy and history in the Hebrew University of Jerusalem. During Kamer's second semester in the university, on the fall of 2003, he was known for the well spread letter he sent to one of the philosophy professors, accusing him for teaching the modern philosophy course, and especially René Descartes and the cogito issue, by constantly comparing them to the film The Matrix, a film which Kamer thought was a bit hallow and unworthy of any philosophical discussion. Jerusalem (31°46′N 35°14′E; Hebrew: (help· info) Yerushalayim; Arabic: (help· info) al-Quds), Greek Ιεροσόλυμα, the capital city of Israel, is an ancient Middle Eastern city on the watershed between the Mediterranean Sea and the Dead Sea at an elevation of 650-840 meters. ...

On May of 2004 Kamer studies at the Hebrew University ended in a disciplinary hearing committee [2] where he was charged with conducting an unauthorized photo exhibition in the campus main hall. Represented by fellow student Ohad Shem-Tov the committee had ruled that Kamer would be on parole for suspension. Kamer and his attorney demanded, as a parody argument, for a full suspension [3]. Eventually Kamer had decided to leave the university all together, as he was accepted for the Sam Spiegel film school in Jerusalem, a school that had no connection to any official academic community, hence no committee decision could have affected Kamer studies at that institute.

In RAW Kamer was in charge of public relations and of making some of the promotional clips advertising the events. In total RAW had 6 raves. The biggest idea for a location was the tallest building in Jerusalem, just built in the area of Givat Shaul. That party was supposed to be held in the top floor, and Kamer and crew already made the promotional clip [4] for it. Eventually the son of the building's owner found out about the plan and therefore the party moved to the just built Jerusalem Malcha Train Station and was held on March 4, 2005. All of the guests arrived, according to instructions, dressed up to High-Tech personnel, while Nimrod wore a streaked leather jacket and tie, representing the vice chairman an PR officer of the so-called firm.
