-The Esquire 100 - Mohammed Saeed Harib
From the start Mohammed Saeed Harib knew he didn’t want to specialise in just one thing.
He wanted to be a jack of all trades and, later, an ace in a few of them. Looking at how his career has panned out so far, we can consider one of those ‘aces’ as running a successful production company (Lammtara Art Production) that he started in order to create the hugely successful, Arabic-language cartoon series, Freej.
While various well-deserved awards, praise and industry influence have all found their way to Harib’s door, he is still keen to push himself creatively to get to the next level. Earlier this year he finished working on his long-awaited live-action directorial debut film, Rashid & Rajab.
The body-switch comedy will be an intriguing shift in genre for Harib, but with the support of Abu Dhabi’s Image Nation, there is little to suggest that this won’t be another ‘ace’ up his sleeve.
