My name is Alireza (Ali) Borujerdi and I am a student living in North Vancouver, B.C. on a journey of pursuing my dream of becoming a filmmaker.
As a child, I watched many movies and would research the behind the scenes aspect of production. I have the unique position that becoming a filmmaker has been a passion since kindergarten.
At the start of grade 11, I took a Film Production course and connected immediately with the topics and procedures of filmmaking. This led to further studies in film, learning skills such as camera movement techniques, screenplay writing, and video editing, which I have used for classes and side projects. I have been chosen to take part in a number of film making contests, among many talented students from my school and our group has succeeded in winning those competitions.
The list of awards can be viewed at the bottom of this page. Personally, competing and winning in those award shows inspired me to continue my path in filmmaking and realizing my dreams of being a filmmaker can be fulfilled.
