I made this video with the help of many friends to help promote a more proactive, positive post revolution Egypt. This is part of a campaign that talks about many issues in the Egyptian society.
Video is in Arabic (No Subs)
Shot using a Canon 7D using an ikan rig, and a kessler cineslider for the moving shots.
All shot using natural light
DP my good friend Joseph Louis.
In 2010 we had this idea that we wanted to make a movie that would talk about Democracy and teach it to the younger generation of Egypt. We filmed with kids ages 7-16 asked them to define Democracy and to tell us a story that would elaborate on the concept. What is amazing to me is that one of them told a story of people uniting together and overthrowing a Dictator. Which is exactly what happened in Egypt in jan and feb of 2011.
This film will hopefully will be used in schools in Egypt as a fun way to open conversation about Democracy with the younger generation.
Interviews were shot on 7D, compositing shots were shot using Sony HDV, we used lots of animation techniques to tell the stories that the youth made.
فيلم سلمى هو فيلم درامي قصير مأخوذ عن قصة واقعية. قصة تحدث كثيرًا و لكن تختلف فيها الاحداث و النتائج.
قصة لسيدة تتعرض للتحرش من قِبَل زميل لها في العمل لانها امرأة. و لكن سلمى ترفض و لا تستسلم. هل يا ترى ستنجح ام ستخذل؟

That pretty much says it all, the only challenging thing about it was working with a lot of uncontrolled people alone in a 40 Degree C Egyptian heat.
Shot on a Canon 7D that overheated 6 Times during the Day and had to wait for it to cool!
