Finally after a dry period of no work, I have a job to wake up to in the morning. I have been assigned to edit a documentary about Arab women who have made it in their respective careers. The focus is on three countries, Jordan, Lebanon and Egypt, and the plan is to have this done by mid September so that it can be considered for entry into the Dubai Film Festival.
So over the weekend my prep work started, and i have been reading through the transcripts of these interviews, which total up to around 40 hours of footage. What i am really impressed about is the scope of work featured in these interviews, some of these women are ceo’s and cio’s, some are artists, a film editor, women who work in rural area developmet…etc.
I hope such a documentary gets attention and many women and young girls get to watch it back in the Middle East , because these days girls and even guys need good role models to look up to.
Since i moved to my new place i haven’t gotten the chance to sit on my balcony and make use of it, but with the aid of wireless internet here i am on my balcony typing and listining to some wonderfull guitar solos, the hollywood sign to my left up high on a mountain and across of me sits an enormous poster of Resse Weatherspoon and she is looking right at me, it’s kinda scary.
