Always eager to give back to their industry, Brainstorm Digital recently assisted Bpeace, a non-profit network of business professionals that volunteer skills to women entrepreneurs in conflict-affected countries, in welcoming Ms. Khadija of Afghanistan to their facilities. Khadija is the owner of Farassoo Productions, a production company that focuses mainly on graphic design, advertising, print, and documentary film-making. Farassoo Productions works out of Kabul, Afghanistan and currently employs 15 women and men, including her brother.

During Khadija’s visit to Brainstorm Digital she met with VFX Producer, Richard Friedlander, and Compositing Supervisor, David Reynolds, and the entire Brainstorm team to gain insight on how a professional visual effects studio is run and what it takes to produce award-winning work for current television shows and films. She toured the studio, reviewed some shots from start to finish, over-looked matte painters at work and learned new insights on how to budget for an array of projects. After an informative Q&A, Khadija was off to her next stop on her trip to learn more about different production facilities in New York City.

Brainstorm was pleased to have Khadija and thrilled to help out with such a great cause. Good luck to Farassoo Productions and all of their endeavors!
