Naz's films have a definite sense of being present and intimate. His camera always reveals and introduces us to characters and settings that take us away —even if that means to journey into seeing everyday situations with a new set of eyes.  His ability to develop relationships with talent allows him to capture beautiful human moments.  

Naz has a strong visual sensibility and aesthetic.  He searches for the beauty, the comedy, and the tragedy in seemingly ordinary worlds. He exposes the everyday heroes that are around us. This is a growing focus in both his commercial, and narrative work.

A multidisciplinary creative who is comfortable operating his own camera, and editing projects. He has a knack for threading sound and music to visuals in such a way to add layers of emotion and character to a script. Naz is drawn to narratives with strong conceptual foundations that aren't afraid to push perspectives, and add to the cultural dialogue. 

Naz believes the absurd and the sensible parts in us coexist at all moments & make us uniquely the people we are (on a given day).
