TEDxDoha - Ahmed Al Baker - From a Dream to Reality

After Ahmed Al Baker, a 23-year-old Qatari, graduated with a degree in mechanical engineering, he went straight to work doing 12-hour shifts as an engineer at Qatar Petroleum. But really, he always wanted to become a filmmaker. He found himself dreaming up stories on his daily commutes. One year ago, he decided it was time to pursue his passion. And now, despite no formal training, he's already finished shooting his first feature film, a science-fiction mystery with 3-D elements that he wrote, produced and directed called "The Package: Volume 1." The film is notable for its daring use of color, lighting and texture. At the TEDxDoha Ahmed talks about how he made his dream a reality. About TEDx, x = independently organized event In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized. (Subject to certain rules and regulations.)
