The second video I’ve made for Google is now online! Once again, a wonderful experience with Google and YouTube teams in Singapore and Pakistan. It was really exciting to see it shown on gigantic screens at the YouTube Pulse event held in Karachi on Jan 17, 2019.
I directed it, Rizwan Sherazi shot it, Sohail edited, Muhammad Asif did post production, Taha Malik did the sound, with Baber Elishah and Ibtisam Khanzada assisting.
We shot it on the Blackmagic URSA Mini Pro in Blackmagic RAW, let me know what you think of the result!
I shot this footage in May 2016, and was finally able to see it recently on BBC World!
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.
