Ali is Ravian Films’ Swiss Army Knife because he can do it all.
He shoots, edits, color corrects, does graphics, and handles much of the logistics during productions.
Oh yeah, he’s also a beat boxer and a break dancer whose signature move is the one-handed stand/spin combo.
Perhaps Ali’s greatest strength is his calmness under pressure thanks to his impressive meditation skills.
