New work for Marie Stopes Society

Just finished a couple of projects for this NGO:

Ramlal – Arab blues

I shot and directed a music video for my friends at Ramlal, Agha and Sibti. But then I got really busy. So after the poor guys called me a million times, I put together this cut, which hasn’t been graded or anything. Shahbaz Sumar shot some of the stuff at the arms store. Nigel Xavier helped with the video a lot, especially with the lighting and editing. Merium Azmi is the female model, I don’t remember the name of the other guy. Enjoy!
