About Alex Klim & Zaina Salameh
Alex Klim is a filmmaker and creative director from Vienna, Austria. He is currently based here in Doha, Qatar, and his passion for film has quickly catapulted him to exceptional standards of the professional filmmaking arena. His wide array of skill and talent has landed him remarkable projects including the official making of the ‘Ali Bin Ali jewelry & watches’ TV commercial – currently shown all over Qatar. It was shot by an international film crew in Germany with globally acclaimed Hollywood director of photography and visual effects expert Thomas Ackerman.
Apart from already being exposed to professional film sets, Alex is a specialist in DSLR filmmaking, and his experience goes even beyond that to other areas of film, equipment and editing. He is currently working on a documentary about the Qatar Philharmonic Orchestra soon to be released November this year.
Zaina Salameh is a graduate of Northwestern University in Qatar, winner of the Outstanding Student in Communications award 2012 and is currently engaged in documentary filmmaking for the Qatar Unified Imaging Project (QUIP) as well as freelance filmography for private industries both local and abroad; recently completing a commercial promoting a local Qatari fashion designer, soon to be aired on Fashion TV. Her field of study explored all areas of film, including cinematography, lighting, editing, directing, acting, theater studies, and other theory-based, history and analysis courses. Zaina’s passion for story-telling moves beyond the technical components of filmmaking to explore innovative ways of communicating to an audience on screen, bringing her creative vision to life.
