I am currently an undergraduate Photography and Video student in my final year, achieving a 2:1 in my penultimate year. From achieving a 1st in my “Constructing the Moving Image” module, to developing a documentary on mod culture as an intern for Arch Creative production house, to producing several short films with my students as a film instructor in Los Angeles, to launching my brand “Omarshakielcreates”, I desire to have a more hands on role in the media industry and have developed a passion for cinematography.
In my own work I attempt to challenge perception. The world we see is a reflection of who we are and what we believe and today, perception is reality. Thus I try to create pieces that are ambiguous- adding an air of space to each piece- giving my audience the freedom to decipher their own understanding of what they see.
I have never been able to settle for mediocre and I have always had zeal for learning. I wish to learn, grow and progress, enhancing and learning new skills from a reputable company in the media industry.
