Motion Pieces

A redesign of a movie title for Hepta using one of the traditional Arabic calligraphic styles. Hepta is based on a drama novel by a popular psychologist called Mohammed Sadek. Hepta explains the seven stages of an individual's life. Hepta is greek for 7 and both, the movie and novel have a lot of philosophical ideas tied together to create a media that everyone could relate to and see themselves in.

The Memory

A personal project I made from a childhood memory I had. Growing up in the Middle East, Ramadan was such a memorable and heartwarming holiday. Our friends and family would gather around and we'd all break our fast together. Unfortunately, the pandemic broke this tradition for the first time in a long time (for many people, at least). This piece combines the memory of being with family & loved ones and the loneliness / emptiness the pandemic made us all feel.

The Pandemic: A Visual Story

Bacteria / viruses are living microorganisms that could only be seen under a microscope. Just because we can't see them, doesn't mean they can't harm us. I macro shot different items that replicated the growth of bacteria and how it affected the entire world. By using neodymium magnets, iron filings and many other objects I could get my hands on, I was able to visualize a short story about COVID-19.

Alien Invasion (3D animation)

A concept art animation I put together. This was inspired by some of my favorite video games. Games like Saints Row IV, The Last of Us, Spiderman and many others were my references for this piece. I was mainly paying attention to the lighting, the cinematography, composition of scenes and concept art to make up my own concept art animation. The goal was to make it look like it's out of a video game or even an animated film and I think that it turned out better than what I had in mind.

Space Station (3D Animation)

Another concept art animation I put together. Egypt and New York share so much in common especially when it comes to subways or metros. After moving here in 2018, I've always felt like New York subways are an out-of-this-world experience. These subways have more diversity than anything else I've ever seen and it's so fascinating to see.
