My name is Ali T. Ordoubadi (Aliev), a filmmaker and cinematographer. my love for motion pictures was inspired by my father, an award-winning war documentary filmmaker. I started learning about celluloid photography in 1995. Later on, during my film-animation studies in art school, I directed my first short film “m135” in 2002. Since then, I took parts as STEADICAM operator, director and cinematographer on most of the film sets. I took two years course for private/commercial pilot license and I have piloted mostly planes. with piston engines.
In 2013, Malaysia, My close collaboration with Aerial Marine Media SDN BHD (Laurie K. Gilbert), led me into learning aerials cinematography-photography with Robinson/Airbus turbine (JET) helicopters. The partnership with Farbod Khoshtinat resulted in founding OBUR Production, A VFX company with the mission to provide quality Services to its Malaysian and international clients.
Basically, narrative way of storytelling is where I am passionately focused on. I shoot music videos, commercials, documentaries and short films. I love storyboarding and Coloring.
