I know its been a while since I last updated, I’d like to talk about several things that happened since last time I posted. First of all, I watched Journey to Mecca, finally ! As a whole I would give it 8/10, I didn’t like the art direction and staging so much especially when they made the Ka’ba so clean during Ibn Battuta’s times, also I everyone is making the tawaf around the ka’ba ( he built ka’ba), but nobody was praying at the back, there were just lanterns ! Moreover, I would have liked to see children, or at least teenagers in the background during the time when Ibn battuta visited the markets, it wasn’t just a grown-ups age, same thing for the Haj scenes, I would beleive it would give it a much closer feel to reality if they had done that. It would’ve also been better if they had mixed races when they casted the extras, especially since there weren’t so much asians and europeans, if not at all. The story, acting and overall message was great in my opinion.

After that I got interviewed by Al-Watan TV “Sabah Al-Watan” in April for my participation in the film, along with 2 others, co-producer Alzain Al-Sabah and Deema Al-Ansari. It was my first time live on TV,  I was really amazed how the set was so small compared to what we actually see on TV.

On June I uploaded my class 3 showreel from my school at Animation Mentor, you can see my showreel below, this time I added music to the showreel, I liked that feature in Youtube called Audioswap, where I can add to my already-uploaded video any music track for free, which is kinda neat.

I’m expecting to graduate hopefully on March 2010

I also attended the second Pecha-Kecha night, this time it was in Al Qibliya School Cultural Center, in my opinion the presenters weren’t better than first time except Ahmad Al-Refae (Owaikeo), even the attendees were less than before, but the environment was more casual.

Now I’m currently searching for olympic sized swimming pools in Kuwait, because I’m thinking of joining one next week, I’ll be showing some of my finding soon on a dedicated post.

عن أبي هريرة رضي الله عنه قال: قال رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم : ” من صام رمضان إيماناً واحتساباً غفر له ما تقدم من ذنبه ” رواه البخاري ومسلم


Abu Hurayrah (may Allah bless him) reported that Allah’s messenger (peace be upon him) said ” Whoever fasts during the month of Ramadan out of sincere faith, and hoping to achieve Allah’s satisfaction, then all his past sins will be forgiven”

I Hoping for all muslims a happy month, I’ll be back after eid.

Overload

I just don’t know what was going ! I’ve stopped posting all of a sudden, I guess I was procrastinating a lot these days, or maybe because I was obsessed so much with reading updates on the iPhone and I forgot about my own blog ! I’ve also been busy making copies of my DVD portfolio for my family and friends, plus working on some unfinished projects here and there, talk about an overload !

There is a post that I’ve started working on last week, or I could say a series of posts. It’s about the main crew of a Hollywood Movie, in each post I’ll write about a person, starting from the producer, writer, director, and ending with the production assistant or PA. Stay tuned folks.

Al-Watan Logo

Last Thursday I was at Souk Sharq, volunteering for Al-Watan Promo, the production company is ZEE FILM established by the Director of this promo Ziyad Al-Husaini, also with the help of a production company called Flying Cam – awarded an Oscar for Technical Achievement for the helicopter, they worked on several films including Harry potter 1-3, Van Helsing, Mission Impossible to name a few.

One of my friend’s told me that they needed volunteers for the Promo, and I wanted to be on set especially because I never saw a remote controlled cam-attached-to-a-chopper before. So I arrived on set at around 11:00am, it was hot, the sun was burning, thank god I bought my Ferrari baseball cap with me:), So after a short Read More »
