While breaking away from his work in TV production in 2013, he found refuge in writing, shooting and directing his own films. Eskander is a passionate filmmaker and enjoys multi-tasking… He believes in the power of films to inspire, provoke, cause debate and change people’s minds… and strongly counters the production model of BIG CREW and BIG EQUIPMENT to create the simple stories, which are meant to be told. After working professionally, in Egypt, as First Assistant Director in numerous TV and online advertising campaigns for big brands such as Redbull, Chevrolet and Coca Cola… etc. and later on working on big TV shows such as “El Bernameg”, “Amreeka Bel ‘Araby” and “Ramadan Galak”, Eskander decided to create a balance between his freelance roles in the media industry (camera operator, executive director, editor, producer and director) and his passion to have a more loose guerrilla-approach to film-making, where he enjoys directing films that hold a deeper meaning and steer from passion.
Drifter Films is Hani R. Eskander’s independent film label. In 2015, he independently produced and directed 2 films.
