Another great conference in a beautiful city. Reasons to had a great line up of speakers, very honored to have been one of them. It was great meeting everyone from the audience too. And I got to do the opening titles for reason to 2018! You can see them below 👀Read More
I started a birthday tradition! Every year I plant trees during my birth month. I did it last year and turned it into an event, awesome people joined and we planted 200 trees.
I am not an “environmentalist”. It just makes sense to me that air should be something I think about like food and water, It’s even more important than the other two! So just like buying good food and healthy drinks for my tummy, I should invest in clean air for my lungs!Read More
A peek into my stop motion process. Hope you enjoy watching this (:Read More
I gave my first stop motion workshop at wysiwyg* agency in Düsseldorf. I had a great time, explained all about stop motion and animation principles, shared all my stop motion tips and tricks and they made really fun creative stop motion loops by the end of the workshop. I can't wait to see the things they'll create now!
I had a fantastic time at another Beyond Tellerrand conference, this time it was the Düsseldorf edition.Read More
I am definitely not a pro, so if you are starting out you might find this helpful. This how I set up the lighting for my doll head stop motion + some mistakes I've made before that you should avoid.Read More
I made this Desktop factory in collaboration with Doro, we worked on it when I was in Hamburg and released it in bits first on instagram (the foodie parts) to confuse people a bit. Doro also collects things that people throw away (on the street, or washed up by the river) and we started tinkering with these till we came up with an idea.
Earlier this year in Jan I gave a talk about all my tinkering I've been doing the past years and how it all started at Beyond Tellerrand Conference in Germany. Here is a photo of 98% of me behind the podium and a somehow visible 2% of me, these percentages may have varried depending on your angle of vision.Read More

So my first "reward" on Patreon for all my beautiful Patrons will be "PLANTING A TREE IN EGYPT"!!!
When I got to know about the 1001 tree project, I started thinking about how the values of things have changed, planting 1001 is cheaper than buying the latest Canon 5D camera in Egypt! So a single camera is worth more than 1001 trees, It's sad, confusing, unbelievable, kind of funny and really sad again!Read More
Here are some thoughts that swirl in my brains everyday, they are more of incomplete thoughts, but they are there, swirling…
I spent 2016 disassembling products that were about to be thrown away and making stop motion stories. I didn’t know squat about stop motion, I was only interested in how we consume stuff. And over the past year I couldn’t put it in any other way, I question how we consume things, be it anything!Read More
My last Tinker object was a pocket camera Called Palm Clix. My brother bought this years ago, he doesn’t even remember if it worked or not, or if he ever even tried it! I don’t know why anyone would buy this to be honest.Read More
Last week I opened the playstation3 controller as per most requests. It’s by far my most viewed and liked video ever on Instagram! Eveer! I can’t believe that more than 60k viewed the videoRead More
This week I opened a Date! It’s Ramadan, the Islamic fasting month and there are dates everywhere! I make sure to eat a few every now and then throughout the night. But I always feel so bad when I throw away the pits!Read More
I choose a cassette tape last week because I’ve been piling up with side projects that I wanted to do and wanted something simple to animate that week, or so I thought! Knitting on its own is very time-consuming, let alone stop motion-ing it!Read More
I skipped a couple of Tinker mails, sorry, I was going through a couple of confusing weeks of me thinking over and over about why I am doing what I am doing.Read More
