I heard a lot of stories about the younger me, I obviously don't remember anything of whatever happened although I hear that I was an energetic and creative yob, yes a yob. I never listened to what my parents had to say since I was somewhere around 5 where all of the stories begin as my mom starts telling them to me and we crack up laughing.
Other than the stories, we come to my parents, a fairly mid ranged parents in everything; finance and education. Just your average people, but with average people we find unusual and un-average things; my mom and dad! Now that I am a man who is waiting patiently for his life to kick off and never leave the fast lane, I want to thank them from the deepest place in my soul, because they really knew how to be the greatest parents on earth, from caring and giving us all of the love that could possibly be available in the world to sending my only sister and I to the best educational system where we lived for most of our lives, Jeddah, Saudi Arabia. Also, they really taught me how to become a better person though sometimes I am very lazy.. and that is not funny!
Since I am thanking people, I want to thank everybody who told me that I was a failure, that I might never make it, that I am not creative to them or I do not meet with their standards. Everybody who left me alone and let me go for good. Also, i want to thank those who have supported me and some of them were just a pass by relation either at work, at school or even at the street! Yep, I am a very social person and that's definitely not the only awesome thing about myself. LOL!
Now fast forward to how I became a filmmaker. I've never thought about how much of a roller coaster my life would be as it all started after I graduated high school and I stumbled upon a film school website and in a very distracted teenager style I asked my dad: ''What do you think about me applying to film school?'' As expected, being the great dad he is, he supported my decision without questioning. Until recent months I did not know if this is what I really want to do, even after spending three years of my life in film school, however, now I am sure. I am sure because I love film! I love filmmaking, I love actors, I love interviews and Interviewing, I love documentaries and the making process from writing the screen until the post, and whoever makes film or works in the process. I mostly love failing to get my shots together and failing on getting a 5 scene project going as it is my passion to learn.
And now since you are over my Be page , there is my art and work and it isn't only about film but about what I learned to love while learning film. From Human Nature, to Physics, to Mechanics, to even Crime and the list goes on. Film is about creating my own world, a world that I should know everything about and everything within. That's why film made me a geek, a geek who is going to stop and stare at the smallest things in life, even if it was a bug that in my own opinion I see useless in life. That is one of the many many many reasons I love film as it taught me how to observe and learn what is around me even if I will not use it, but I found out that everything we learn has a use in life, and that's why I am thankful because film..found me.
The Revolution: I participated in one of the purest things that have ever happened in the Egyptian history; the 25th of January. That was one of the things that, I believe, have changed all of our lives, and it had such an impact on people like me who had no hope or maybe never looked forward with that orthodox lifestyle of not caring. It, also, taught me how to be a rebel in my own work, not just a in a march or a strike against the government or the filmmaking syndicate of Egypt, it taught me how to become a better person. I had to mention it because as I am thankful to film, I am also thankful to the revolution which taught me how to become a true human being.
Finally, you are either my dad or someone who is interested in me, personally, or my work, either ways, all I ask for is support. Support by any means, not to me only or to me in particular but to anyone who is dreaming and needs a chance to do what they might love or need to do the most. We only live once, people, and it is very unfair if we die without accomplishing what we day dream about or have a conversation with in the mirror.
What we all need is support and a dream to follow.
Thank you for reading one of the most sincere things I have said or written in my life, thank you for caring, and don't be away because I will make and create even if it's my last breath on earth.
Thank you again.

I don't really care about the rules of Film, Photography, or/and Music. All I care about is that the audience will hear good Audio, see good Visuals, and most important Enjoy the art I am trying to perfect.
The dream is that one day I will reach that stage of perfection in what I dedicated my life to, my artistic career, and I am working as hard as I can to become most knowledgeable of what I do. And, to be one of those people that maybe millions wait for the next project they do, which is the max stage of perfecti… Read More
