Being half Egyptian and half English really helps me to connect, understand and work with both languages to create compelling audio/visual content.
My work includes editing TV shows (entertainment and documentaries) for broadcast and online, short films, social media/online projects, editing/directing promotional videos for business/brands and finally producing educational films.... pretty much almost anything!
If you are looking for somebody who is a natural storyteller, a fun people's person and a problem solver then you have definitely come to the right place..

How it all started....I studied TV and Documentary productions back in Cairo were I started my first job as an assistant director working on producing short films for the UNICEF and British Council tackling poverty issues in Egypt. Making my way up through Europe where I also worked as freelance cameraman and editor for the Luxembourgish film-maker Ady Al Assal.
Moving to London in 2011 I started filming and editing all the vidoes for the British Library and soon after I established my own video services as Yahyia Productions.
Later on I travelled to Greece, Macedonia, Slovenia and Germany as a PD with James Bluemel to help in some of the filming of Exodus: Our journey to Europe, BBC 2.
I also have been heavily involved in the structuring and editing of a successful TV show in the Middle East which followed a character around the world discovering cultures through the element of photography.
Now I'm based in London working as a freelance video editor & content producer on location and remotely for a variety of clients producing all sorts of content.
