Looking for a Director

Bismillah ar-Rahmaan ar-Raheem,

Asalam alaikum ,

ALhmdulailh it’s been almost a week since my last post. I pray that all if you are in the best of health and imaan. I have three days left in Elance to finalize the storyboard project. I haven’t focused too much on it due to many factors. Gaby explained very well on the comment section Jazake Allah Gaby.

For now I’ll stay on hold for storyboard. Ali got in touch with 3 directors and we decided to go with the one that we thought will help us and be the best candidate for our project. I’ve been in touch with him, for couple days making some contacts though email and phone calls. At 1st we were all excited but unfortunately I just got his email yesterday and he didn’t want to work with us. After he read the script he changed his mind.

So we learned that next time if we are looking for a director we should do the following:

1. We have the person read
the script.

2. Find out what they want

3. Know their availability.

4. Get them on the board

Worst case scenario, If we didn’t find anyone then we'll go with Plan B ,which is to do it ourselves which means we need to study the camera work course (6 DVDs Hollywood study course). In this case you can also check the following sites. It’s free and very informative and you will learn so many things on filmmaking. camerawork, lighting etc. Let me know what you think about these links.

1. Digital Juice
2. Izzy Video

As I told this unpleasant news to Brother Ali, he advised me to be patient, because Allah is the best of planners. So the moment he wanted to post another adds on craigslist. He got in touch with Brother Sufyaan. He has an experience in directing. Brother Sufyaan will go through the script tonight and inshallah he will let us know by tomorrow. He was very excited so I think that’s good thing! Please make dua that he will be on the board with us. He knows Brother Hani and both have experience with productions, studio equipment etc. Keep in mind that everything is by the grace of almighty Allah then with your supports and duas. Baraka Allahu feekum Wa salam alaikum,
