I am a recent graduate in Film Directing from the University of West London and before that I had the chance to study and work in the UAE for 8\9 years. Those years have been the most formative of my life and that is why I consider Abu Dhabi to be my second home. After getting a scholarship from the Crown Prince Court to study at Sorbonne I worked on Abu Dhabi’s Major events till I finally switched industries and became a media analyst for a government think tank.
That allowed me to understand the important role the press plays in shaping public opinion but it also gave me the motivation to leave all this life behind and take on a career in film and that is why i moved to Berlin to do my Masters in film directing. Now it’s been a year since I graduated and I hope to be able to mix my knowledge in law, politics and dramaturgie to write and direct films that are relevant to the region but in the meantime it is essential for me to collaborate on projects to improve my skills and work alongside a group of like minded people.
Below is a modest list of projects i have worked on:
–Cast for “Incendies” (2010) directed by Denis Villeneuve
-Extra for ”Rosewater” (2014) directed by Jon Stewart
-PA for Stand-up comedy shows with “Jamel Debbouze” and “Gad Elmaleh” (2014)
-Writer/Producer/Director of short documentary “Dhahiyet al-Hussein” (2019)
-Writer/Director/Editor of commercial “2020: Toilet Paper Space Odyssey” (2020)
-PA, DIT & Assistant Editor for Feature film “Spectre” (2021) directed by Saeed Rashed
Freelancer Video Editor, Cameraman and Motion Graphics Designer
I am professional Video Editor. I have 10+ Years of experience in this field. I like this profession because of my father, cause he is film director in Azerbaijan and from 15 years I’ve started my editing and have worked with companies like BP (British Petroleum) in Azerbaijan. I also can film, but like editing more.
