  6. Haha, mashaAllah that was good! :)

  7. :)

    It really does take heroic efforts some days to not miss your prayers while you’re working.

    Thank you for passing on an extremely encouraging message.

  8. Awesome. Finally got a chance to look back to these videos.

    I like the use of sound effects, and funny acting..

    What really caught my eye was the shot from the second part when the main character heard the adhan. Did you guys manually do that shot following all the way to the prayer room and sped it up/blur in AE (or Final Cut Express)?

    • Salam

      Yes! I walked all the way from where the ‘hero’ was standing on campus, to Imperial’s prayer room, all the time with camera in hand. I think it took about five mins (incl. crossing a busy road), hehe. :)

      Most of the video was edited using FCE. AE was used for the SFX. Finally have CS5 but need an excuse to use it. :)
