    I started working on a short movie for Amar Ya Masr. Amar Ya Masr is an Egyptian NGO started 2011, intended to contribute to the development of Egypt. I am basically supervising the CG part of the show. As an artist, I am doing some FX and general VFX work. I also participated in shooting the green screen part of it. The movie is taking a long time since there are not many artists working with me. I think it's going to look great.
