200 Days




As promised, this is my first 'mini-movie'.
It took 30 days, 72 cups of coffee & 12 neurons to create.

I offer it here as a zip file that you can download, unzip, and watch on your PC. It got too large to expect anyone to bother wait for it to load on the blog page. If you can't get to see it for some reason, let me know.

Download here. (2.71 MB)

I made it clear in the movie and will do it here as well that this work is completely, totally & utterly subjective.
So please, don't try to tell me how I've got it all wrong.

All other comments are welcome...

Ramzi, my feelings have been torn on the Lebanese issue recently. Your film sent shivers down my stone-cold spine. Thank you.

Bi3a22ed Ramzi.
It is indeed a great priviledge to be a Lebanese and to have had the chance of witnessing & participating in all these post-Feb. 14th events.

Ramzi,
I'm speechless...i had shivers down my spine, and then tears in my eyes, and then shivers again and now i don't know what to say...Very well done, very nice video, and i like the fact that it reminds me of what has already been accomplished, in a time when it's hard to stay optimistic! Yes we're far from being "there", but we're (hopfully) on the right track! So thank you!
miss u..

Thanks for all the kind comments folks!
I tried hard to put everything I feel into this movie, and maybe because it's done now or maybe because it took so much time to put together I don't know, but I don't feel a thing when I see it now!
I'm just glad that the emotion of it came through, and if it touched some of you then I'm glad.

Those of you I know personally, I miss you too!
Those I don't... why is that?

Very well done!

You used nice colors (black/ red), good well mixed muisc, and the pics you chose are awsome. it's hard to get what you want from other artists so yea it's good you found the exact ones for each step.

About the message, it's said that it's subjective so I dunno why people are ranting about that. Even that i don't agree with it much, it's very superficial..like a summary of all the news since Harire's assisination till now.

But all in all it's good.
Keep it up!

Too many times I try to write some response...words just don't flow easily...so anxious to have you complete the movie and now that you have...I am at a loss for words...too many emotions...tears...jubulation...anger...a smile...sadness...

You have this way...when you create...it is always heart wrenching...

The tension is thick in the air...the want for change is there...but how much more to endure before it happens...too much fear...hate...unjust

Remember the day everyone took to the streets...remember it every single day...live that...want that...believe

I loved the end...I thank you so much...I already shared it with so many...

An angel once again showed his heart

God Bless
