"I've spent my whole life studying film, before even knowing about it. Growing up I would watch films with my Mum and Grandfather. Then, I would go outside and act out whole scenes frame by frame."
Ayman was born in Saudi Arabia and moved to Birmingham UK in 1998. During his younger years he thrived in school, college and took the path of higher education. With a passion in music, film and the arts…the jazz drummer, photographer and media aficionado knew he wanted to achieve more.
The young visionary graduated in Creative Digital Media from the University of Worcester. He took his love for films he set a goal to become a film director.
Writing scripts and short stories are important to him, as he feels doing so helps him create a story and then visualise it from paper to screen. Doing this has become a form of education, habit and thirst to succeed.
Over the years Ayman has worked on a large assortment of videos and films. Working as a camera trainee on a feature, he was given advice by a few friends in the industry. Stop being a camera trainee, and start laser focusing on becoming a director.
He took this advice gratefully and is now on a journey of establishing himself as an up-and-coming director and writer.
