oh i shot this ages ago but couldn’t decide what to do with it. and then i stopped thinking.
I’ve set up a production house called Innuendo Films. Bought the URL and everything and as stuff gets done I’ll be updating both sites. Even got a tiny office in Tauheed Commercial Area. Nigel Xavier and I have been working on a few projects for Toyota, PAKSAT and a couple of other clients, so watch this and/or that space. In the meanwhile, I’ve uploaded pictures from the shoots on the IF website.
I’ve been busy… and have a couple of new videos up. The first is an educational one I made with my brother Nauman Naqvi. He had given a lecture at The Second Floor here in Karachi on Sadequain; I shot and edited it, and here it is:
Next there are two on Gawaahi.com: one is an interview of a union worker from Karachi who was fired at and then fired for asking for a raise:
Here you will be able to stay up-to-date with my illustrious career as a film-maker in Karachi, Pakistan. What little I have done I have tried to put down on the bio page. And then the plan is that as I’m doing stuff, I will keep writing about it here. Why it would be of any interest to anyone is completely beyond me. So… currently I’m showing my showreel to different advertising agencies here in Karachi, trying to get low-budget commercials, branded music videos, tv/web-based shows and corporate documentaries. Unfortunately nothing has materialized recently, in fact I haven’t done any work since we finished filming Rafina. But the idea is that once I get a project or two, then I will have a more substantial showreel, and then I’ll definitely get more projects, and so on. In the meanwhile, I’m going to make a music video for a song called Arab Blues by Ram Lal, and another one for Shaheryar Mirza’s song Volcano.
