I am Karim Shaaban, born on June 1990, in Cairo, Egypt. I study Information Technology in Thebas academy in Cairo , I am also a Film-maker and a Graphic Designer.
I believes that arts with all its different forms is the best medium through which one can communicate with people. That is why I choose films and digital arts as the mediums through which I can express my ideas, dreams, and beliefs. Film making in particular allows me to voice out my opinions and reflections, be it political, social or artistic ones.
My passion for film making started when I was much younger, during school; back then, I asked some of my teachers if I can make a documentary about my school and they agreed to produce a low budgeted, 15 minutes documentary, which turned out to be my first step into the world of movies.
My second experience was Adams son, which was my way of expressing the notion of being dead while being alive at the same time.
Overload was my last short movie, and I consider it the most important so far, because I feel it is much more mature and in sync with what I want to express.
Another side of my career is being a graphic design and digital artist, I started working in graphic design since 2005, but my interest in digital arts dates much earlier than that.
Ive been a graphic designer for almost 3 years now, and Im well experienced in the field. I work in a renowned advertising agency in Cairo, Lead Marketing Solutions, as an executive creative designer.
However, my dreams and hopes dont stop there, I aspire to reaching out for people through movies and art, I aspire to touching peoples lives and bettering it, one way or another. In a developing country like Egypt, if my work can open eyes to an existing problem and help solve it, if my work can uplift peoples spirit or improve someones life, I would consider myself successful.
