Director Biography - Taha Ismail

I am a self-taught independent Filmmaker & Visual Artist from Dhaka, Bangladesh - Currently based in London. Being passionate about the visual arts since a very young age, I started my filmmaking journey at the age of 15. I ran an online content network for 5 years prior to moving to the UK to study Digital Film Production at Ravensbourne, London. I enjoy experimenting, so my work consists of different styles, techniques and subject matters - ranging from short films, music videos, web series, promos to sketches - from which several projects have gone on to become internet sensations. I am usually involved in the filmmaking process from pre to post production, but I mainly specialise in writing, directing and editing.

Director Statement

I first heard Dameer's track in June last year, and I really liked what I heard, so I approached him with the idea of a music video. We didn't really have a budget, so we had to use the minimal resources we had at hand. After listening to the track over and over again, I felt that it would be best if we maintained a retro-style aesthetic or mood. Trusting our guts, we went with the flow of things - a lot of the shots were improvised and decided on the day. Keeping the lyrics in mind, we filmed shots that evoked an emotion or symbolized certain feelings/stages of a relationship. 4 artists, one week in Dhaka, and the end result is a product of wonderful spontaneity and pure passion.
