About Madiha Faiz Rana : To promote culture through motion graphics and videography is always my passion, my aim is to serve community and educate young females the art of generosity and being empathetic towards others . Life is not a bed of roses; it gives you the challenges that sometimes become the great opportunities for a person. The entire journey was not easy as I decided to select a totally different field to pursue my career and the society I belong to; prefer the girls to select the field of medicine. I always involved myself in seeking the knowledge about my field; watched different videos available on YouTube and participated in the different discussions. I used to read about the different successful animation companies like Pixar and Walt Disney. Walt Disney has always been the source of great inspiration for me. I worked as a freelancer at the beginning of my career and made the progress slowly. Later I decided to make my own animated documentary entitled as “Truck Art” that was awarded A design award Italy in movie and animation category in April 2016. As far as my other achievements are concerned, I have been actively involved in the different activities such as I participated in the different exhibitions related to graphics, arts, architecture and designing. I am the member of the different societies related to the cinema and animation. In 2007, I was awarded with the 3 big awards for the best short film, best direction and best actress category in LUMS Amateur Film Festival.
