Sticking wtih the Reminder Series
Bismillah ar-Rahmaan ar-Raheem,When Ummah Films was first launched, I figured I could work on numerous projects at the same time. As time went by, I realized that it wasn't realistic. Many projects require a team of individuals to put something together and as much as we tried putting people together for one film project after another, nothing seemed to work out. At the end of the day, I found myself in front of my camera doing monologue videos. Since I would write, film, edit, and produce the series myself, it didn't require a team of individuals for each filming and thus if the video didn't get done, there one person who could be blamed was me.
These days I find myself traveling to one city after another talking about the series which has consumed a lot of my normal free time. Thus, the release of the videos have been expanded from weekly videos to monthly videos. I wanted to set goals that were realistic and Alhamdulillah I have been able to stick with them. I have been asked via email and in person to continue making the videos because of its impact. As much as I want to work on other film projects, I am usually asked to lead those projects and I honestly can't lead more than one project at a time efficiently. I have decided to focus on only the Reminder series in order to stay consistent. Once I have exhausted the topics which I feel is relevant, then I hope to start a different project InshAllah.
There are other brothers who are working on other projects under the banner of Ummah Films. Like me, they are creative freedom as long as they stay within the framework of halal entertainment. The goal is to keep our intention straight InshAllah. I hope each project is successful but of course, that success is out of our hands. At the end, I don't want Ummah Films to be limited to just the Reminder series and I hope it expands to other film projects.
