Hey, I'm Abdallah!

Los Angeles, California
FROM CAIRO TO HOLLYWOOD

I am an Egyptian filmmaker currently finishing my M.A. in Film and Media in Los Angeles.

While getting my B.A. in TV and radio broadcasting in Cairo, I started working as a TV reporter at MBC, the biggest entertainment network in the Middle East, from the age of 19 to 24. During that time, I interviewed people such as British prime minister "Tony Blair" and Egyptian president "Abd-Elfattah El sisi" , and covered events such as the Egyptian revolution and two presidential elections.

The work atmosphere was often intense—sometimes dangerous—and I prided myself on delivering consistent results for the network, and for our viewers.

Then I felt the need to expand and enrich my skills in the United States. Out of hundreds of applicants, I was the only Egyptian filmmaker picked for the Fulbright grant in 2016. Since starting here, I have written and directed two short films and two musical montages. I have also Worked on many other shoots for independent and student filmmakers.

In other related work experience, I worked as a producer on a TV show with Barcelona FC soccer star Xavi Hernandez in Cairo, where I dealt with schedules, supervising of the team and of the budget, as well as creative development and post production. I have also worked as a video journalist for El Watan newspaper in Cairo.
