My new movie is up

Liffi Liffi is up online at or
This movie was made because it's fun to make little shorts that excercise the on-the-spot decision-making process when making movies. I find that this sort of thing keeps you on your feet and the result, with good direction and editing, turns out fun and dynamic. Of course the most important thing for these improvisational films is the performance. And we have some really fun performances from Nadim, Osama, Rama, Faisal, Tareq, and Abdullah depicting the different types of people you would stumble into on the streets of Amman.

I really enjoy absurd humour, and this movie, like Suffi Suffi, is exactly that. This is what happens when girls ask for directions. All hell breaks loose. You'll see what I mean when you watch the movie. Also, I should mention what a fan of Yazan Al-Rusan's music I am. This is the Jordanian who made the song in this movie as well as the song at the beginning of Suffi Suffi. You can visit his web site at:

One last note: I think this is probably the last of my quick no-budget short films. I'm moving on to my feature film once I get done with my cycle 3 AFI film, a dramatic piece. But for now, let's get Jordanian!

Hope you enjoy Liffi Liffi!

Thanks. This is my last short because there's no time. I've been prepping for my big feature film. You can only do so many short films.
