The winners of the #CreativesAtHome competition Elie Fleyhan, Huda Dawoud and Naser Al Junaibi will each receive an adventure camera kit from Baynounah TV.
Twofour54, Image Nation and Baynounah TV have announced three winners for the #CreativesAtHome short film competition, namely Elie Fleyhan, Huda Dawoud and Naser Al Junaibi.
The competition called on the UAE’s budding filmmakers to create a 60-second film from their home. Over 100 submissions from residents across the UAE were received and reviewed by the panel of six judges.
Elie Fleyhan documented his day during the lockdown in Good Morning till Goodnight; Huda Dawoud’s Hug Yourself which provides an inspirational message of self-care; and Naser Al Junaibi’s Omar showed a scene from a dramatic nightmare touching on verbal abuse.
Each winner will receive an adventure camera kit to carry on their content creation and will appear on Baynounah TV’s Weekly Update and Abu Dhabi News programmes to over 5,000 daily viewers.
Additionally, the three filmmakers will have the opportunity to take up an internship with Baynounah TV and a training course with Image Nation’s Arab Film Studio and twofour54’s Creative Lab.
