Multimedia (2009)

1. TRADITIONAL MARRIAGE

An awareness video I created for a college project, and was qualified to participate in a competition by “Basmat Banat”, a TV show on Al-Aan Tv. The first one is the non-edited version, and the second is the final submission.

2. INVESTIGATING THE STRUGGLES OF FEMALE PHOTOGRAPHERS in KSA

A project I worked on with my friend, graphic designer Isra’a Al-Kuhlani, for a school project. Unfortunately we were limited to a maximum of 3 minutes for the whole documentary.

    Salam,

    Congratulations on launching your blog.

    Regarding this matter, I truly believe that men face more resistance from the society when it comes to shooting “seemingly” random scenes.. Don’t you think?

    Sincerely,
    Mustafa Marghoob

      Salam Mustafa,

      Thank you! 🙂

      If you could kindly elaborate a bit more, that would really help. I’m not sure I understood the relationship between men in society and “shooting seemingly random scenes”?

      Regards,
      Soraya

    Salam =D

    I rly like the female Saudi photographers vid. =D nice job!!
    Everything regarding females in Saudi is controversial!! There are a lot o prohibits and no this no that. But you have to also look at the bright side. Saudi has come a LOOOOOOOONG way when it comes to females and their careers. It’s a transitional phase, and as Dr. Chaman said ppl will accept it with time. Hey we have female cashiers now so that’s a big step =D!!

    I’m sorry it’s just that I’m very interested in this topic, females in Saudi. And videos like this do help in spreading awareness regarding the matter.

    Very good job mashallah =D

    Cheers,
    Do3a2

      Salam dear,

      Thank you first of all for taking the time to comment 🙂

      It’s true. We’ve come a very long way mashaAllah. Now Jeddah Municipality is actually inviting and encouraging photographers and videographers to cover the local events and upload the photos and videos on their website. Hard to believe, but 100% true. I haven’t actually responded to any of it yet, but I should definitely try to next time there’s an event. What’s important is that they’re finally understanding that tourism isn’t tourism without photojournalism.

      Thanks again, and don’t you ever apologize 😀

      Regards,
      Soraya
