It certainly has been a while since we have posted anything but we felt that you guys deserve to know what’s going on.
Unfortunately I have some bad news: the director that had been working on our promo video, featuring Faye Sultan, and was currently in the process of editing it had recently told me that they have lost all our footage because of a crash in their hard-drive. This is on top of the fact that the video had already been delayed several months past its initial deadline, because of the director’s busy schedule and personal issues. We are all just as frustrated as you are with all of this because we initially though we would get this ready by January, Sadly, things did not work out.
As you can all imagine, it is not easy to find people to work with a budget as small as ours, and that is why we relied on this director who was also a personal friend. Regrettably, it clearly did not work out and it looks like we are going to have to start over.
On behalf of Equait, I, Faisal Al Fuhaid, would like to apologize for all of this as I should have been a lot more hands-on with the video and searched for a different director once it became clear that the deadline was not going to be met.
At this moment, we have failed you. However, the thing with failure is that it helps you to become better next time. As far as I see it, this is just a mere road block for a path to greater things. All I can do right now is promise you that, when this all set and done, we will give you the best promo video we can possibly make! I will not stop until this is finished. Work begins on it Mid-September and we will provide you with an update as soon as plans are set.
We hope you guys understand the situation and we apologize for any inconvenience this has caused.
Faisal Al Fuhaid
Founder and Managing Director of Equait
