The following are some of the films I've written and directed or/and edited.

Besides directing, I'm also a script developer and collaborate with screenwriters from the Middle East, mainly through the Doha Film Institute.

Script

Development

Backed with training and an industry Diploma from the National Film & Television School (NFTS) in Script Development, I work with producers and writers to develop scripts up to a production-ready stage. Whether it’s a short or a feature, the process covers all the essential elements of a screenplay, starting from a thorough revision of the logline, premise and creating a clear dramatic/thematic conflicts of the film, all the way to structure,  believable characters, their journey/arc, genre, pace and visual language.
