Participating with Several Works Within Ramadan
Ahmad Al Morsy is Imitating Theatre in the Credits of Wedding Song
Within the holy month of Ramadan, Director of Photography Ahmad Al Morsy participates in several works within the race of TV dramas including the credits of the TV drama Wedding Song by Director Mohamed Yassein.
About the credits of the TV drama Wedding Song, Al Morsy says, "The events of Wedding Song
take place in a theatre and its backstage, and it is important to get this spirit in the credits, so we actually shot the scenes at the Kasr El Nil Theatre. Although the theater curtains do not appear clearly except in the last scene, I focused on highlighting the spirit of the theater, even in close shots. Also, we used props from the series itself, such as a typewriter, writer's glasses, smoking pipes and others. I did not want to show the same image as in the series so the credits would seem unique as Wedding Song is one of the major TV dramas this season, so it is worth to be unique."
Wedding Song is a new TV hit based on a novel of the same name by Egyptian Noble laureate
Naguib Mahfouz. Directed by Mohamed Yassein, the new TV adaptation Wedding Song stars MonaZaki and Gamal Soliman. The TV drama is produced by iProductions in collaboration with Alshorouk Productions and JWT.
