Update TNC project.

Bismillah ar-Rahmaan ar-Raheem,

I got a chance to pitch the TNC idea to Yusuf and he has decided to join this adventure Alhamdulillah. I emailed him the draft of the script. The next step is to look for someone who writes scripts professionally to take a look at our amateur script and polish it up a little bit. A great site to find this type of help is elance. Basically, you post up what you want done (in this case someone to help us make the script better), and then professional bid on the job and then if you like one of them, you select them and your set.

I hope Yusuf can come up with the description of what we want done on Elance by this weekend so we can post it up by Monday InshAllah.

Launching "Tomorrow Never Comes"

Bismillah ar-Rahmaan ar-Raheem,

Ummah Films was launched last year with the idea of making short films. So I worked on a script called "Tomorrow Never Comes" but for one reason or another, the movie never got made. Since then, I have been keeping myself busy doing the The Reminder Video Blogs on the Ummah Films site but I want to go back and try to film this short movie.

I don't expect the finished product to look like something straight out of Hollywood type because this is our first try but I want to at least try to make it decent. Its always easy being a critic but once YOU have to do it, then its a whole new ballgame. Anyways, if this blog sounds interesting, please subscribe to it so you can get emails when something new comes up.

TNC (Tomorrow Never Comes) is a short story about Hassan, an intellectually and athletically gifted young man, who awakens one day and discovers he can't hear. He soon realizes that he was deaf long before this day because of his arrogance. His lost of hearing humbles him and he realizes that he must change. He decides to change tomorrow but tomorrow never comes and as tomorrow is his funeral.

The film is a short (only about 5 to 7 minutes in length) and its the first film project from Ummah Films.
