Doctor, Director! Reshoot Airport scene

Bismillah ar-Rahmaan ar-Raheem,

We had to go back to do our airport scene due to security concerns that arose during our initial shoot.

Sad to say, we were busted again, but the security guy was nice enough to give us 10 minutes to do our work. After 3 hours, we were done and left :)

In the pic is Walter, our dedicated DP and our lead actor, Alberto.

Well, filmmaking is really complicated and time-consuming. To film 15 seconds on on-screen shots, it took us 3 hours to do. The security mistakenly thought it will take us 10 minutes!! Hope it clears the situation somewhat.

Assalaamu 'Alaykum Warahmatullaahi Wabarakaatuhu
Hey Baba 'Ali this is Amaan. I really love your video blogs. I always learn something new and you're realy funny. Its so cool Mashallah. But I have something important to say. Remember that backbiting is haraam? Yeah so there's these two videos you have which are called "The Pursuit of Cleanliness" and "Muslim Characters at Work." In one of them you kind of talk about the people at your workplace and how they don't wash their hands. In another one, I think again talk about somebody at your workplace and how he's kind of ashamed to be Muslim. Isn't that also kind of backbiting? I don't really know but Maybe? Anyway I really love you videos and I can't wait to come out. I know it will be fantastic Inshallah!!!
Jazakullah Khair Baba 'Ali

Walaikum Salam wa Rahmatullah wa Barakatuh,

JazakAllah Khair for your kind words. The people in my videos are not necessarily real characters. I do not bring up specific people because I'm not trying to attack any person nor any group of people. My concern deals more with the ideas we carry so to illustrate my point sometimes, I need to create dialogue. Being that I don't have a cast or crew (just a one man team), I have to get creative when it comes to dialogue. Otherwise, my intention is not to backbite. JazakAllah Khair
