MAHER ALSHIKH

I am a Syrian creative director, music producer , dancer and editor who enjoys making challenging contents using different filming and editing techniques. My passion to filmmaking and performing started since a very young age as I took part in acting in children's music videos on Spacetoon channel. As a result I developed my hobby as a performer and content creator and reached the finals in the Arabs Got Talent show in 2012. However, I have been formally working in music producing and directing since I graduated from my Film and TV productions course from the Belarusian State Academy of Arts, that shaped the skills needed to make entertaining content by combining everything that I have learnt and to execute the ideas I imagine perfectly.
