I have edited an directed a 3x48min films to commemorate WW1’s centenary on Al Jazeera Network.
I was asked back in January 2014 to be part of a big budget production for Al Jazeera Network that commemorates the role of Arabs in WW1 and is not very well known or discussed in media much.
I was very intrigued, yet anxious to undertake such a task especially that the footage was filmed in over 15 cities with a crew I did not know and a director who was onboard before myself. I got the call then from a lovely Al Jazeera producer who told me I was highly recommended for the job and asked me if I would like to embark on such a journey of editing and directing the full series in post until broadcast.
The films air on the 14th November 2014 which is the date the Ottoman Empire enters the war a 100 years earlier.
The rest is history
