BIOGRAPHY OF THE DIRECTOR

My name is Youssef Rhanem, i'm 31 and i am a Photographer/Videographer with a significant experience in editing, post-production & animation, i started my career as a 3d designer & animator for video games and advertisings, then photography which was at the beginning a hobby, opened me the doors to enlarge my field and learn how to make videos from shooting to color grading, after discovering cameras, lenses, editing and the production process, i took time to produce (and learn while producing) Far from Casablanca and finish it. I had the chance to work with a very talented team, we were few but effective. I wrote & independently produced the short film, mostly because artists coming from Animation & post-production have less chance to be considered as filmmakers & get production budgets since they don’t come from film schools.
