Here’s a TVC Nigel Xavier and I had made for Toyota last year… somehow never managed to put it online until today.
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.
