The Qatar Football Association (QFA) has commissioned Red Dot Films to create a promotional film for the Qatar national team’s new 2022 FIFA World Cup kits, emphasising the importance of not identifying the model wearing the kit and providing close-ups of its details, pattern, and distinguishing features.
The concept of the ad is about revealing the kits worn by an unknown silhouette player out of a cloud of smoke. The director, Shadab Khan, found that the best way to create the scene is by putting a light in the back and smoke in front of it to make the mood generally more sporty.” Indeed, if there is no light hitting the smoke, the mood will turn soft.
After four years of working with Qatar Media Corporation (QMC) in establishing 37 TV and developing FM 107 Urdu Radio, Shadab Khan returns to Red Dot Films energized and full of ideas to grow the company. The Red Dot website team interviewed Khan to explain the role he has given to the TV and radio channels and clarify his endeavors in the Red Dot after these years.

If it does not consist of human intervention, it falls under the landscape, such as waterfalls and fields.” In the same context, the videography is categorised.
