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 recently directed and produced this video for Google. The video is featured on Think With Google, highlighting their partnership with Daraz.pk on their 2017 Black Friday sale. Working with the team at Google was an educational experience, they knew exactly what they wanted and we chipped away at the script until we got exactly that. One thing worth mentioning here is that the folks at Google liked the style of animation in this video so much, they’re including it in their global guidelines for case study videos.
Just found out that this video I shot has a million views:
