A lover of cinema since childhood, a stint helping out on a film shoot starring Robert Downey Jr. inspired Hadi to imagine a future for himself in filmmaking. A graduate of the London Film School, his keen eye for small details and human moments resulted in him he being offered a place on a production company roster based on the strength of films he made as a student. He then honed his skills working in the French and Irish advertising markets, bringing visual flair to the famed Irish storytelling prowess and narrative sense to the gorgeous imagery of French creative. A visual storyteller, he’s known for lush cinematography, his ability to coax grounded performances out of actors, and for deeply collaborative productions. A true citizen of the world, you’ll find him working for ad agencies in Beirut, Dublin, Paris, Shangai and beyond on any given production (with work for brands like Johnnie Walker, Toyota, Tesco and Vodafone, to name just a few), but his favorite place to be — when not at home in London with his soccer-loving family — is on set, where he’s famed for always staying on his feet, never using a director’s chair, and constantly striving to capture visuals that make viewers pause in wonder.
