Hassan Said is a Director, producer, and photographer. He was initially born in Egypt and currently resides in Los Angeles. Hassan is multi-lingual and has created content in English, Arabic, Spanish, Portuguese, and French. He has worked with Adobe, HP, and Focus Features.
In 2019, Hassan embarked on directing, producing, and writing on the upcoming feature film THIS IS YOUR SONG. The film is set in San Francisco and contains a 97-minute single-take shot.

When Hassan is not working, you can find him, “wandering the streets of Los Angeles or San Francisco taking pictures with his old Hasselblad.”

We asked Hassan questions, questions that could only be answered with images…
