Visual Design of Captain Abu Raed

Here's a slideshow of the visual concepts with the locations. Pritchard and I spent Friday driving around from Amman to Marka to Salt looking at locations - airport, Abu Raed's neighborhood, and hilltop locations where he tells the kids about his adventures around the world.

Also, the music is by Gabriel Yared, Oscar-winning Lebanese composer.

Here's the link:

    Thank you everyone. We have been working very hard to make this happen, and it feels like a miracle taking place. Everyday something new and exciting happens.
    Dar, Abu Raed is not based on anyone real, but while I was writing his charcter, I often thought of my grandfather, Wahbeh Jabaji.

    oh my god i have to meet you before you get too famous so that I can say I knew you when you were struggling and just starting out! Though I would hardly call any of this struggling! You are being wished the best by all of us you know, and if you need volunteers, helpers, workers, whatevers, let me know, I'm all for working in an industry that might lead me to Colin Farrell!

    ;) And on a serious note: Good luck and be oh so proud of yourself! You are currently 'The Man.'
