Hello there, My name is Shahin Shokoui a director and editor living in Hamburg Germany. When I was young I was drawing a lot until I started drawing tanks and rockets. That was the point when my parents decided to move away from Iran. Once in Germany I started doing graffitis and later got into graphics design and so I got into advertising and had a lot of fun writing for commercials. Running around recording with a camera at the agency all the time made me realize what my true passion was: telling stories. So, that is it!
