Director Tarik Freitekh speaks on Mohamed Hamaki

Why we were we at Hollywood Studios?


We stopped by Hollywood Studios to speak with director Tarik Freitekh, and his director of photography Cory McKennan, while they were working on their new television series, “THE DIRECTOR.”


We asked Cory what it’s like working with Tarik Freitekh. 


“Tarik always brings a great energy to the set, and just really has a way of bringing everyone together.  I’ve loved his work from the beginning and it’s always a great pleasure to work with such a passionate visionary.”


What’s your next project with director Tarik Freitekh.


“Our next project is featuring mohamed hamaki, who is arguably the most popular artist in the Arab world at this time.  His latest CD is the best selling album in the Middle East, so me and Tarik could not be more excited to work with such a talented artist.”


Can you tell us more about the project?


“I’ll let direct Tarik speak more on that project.”


Tarik says “mohamed hamaki has become one of the biggest artists in the Arab world in a relatively short period of time.  This is only his third album if I’m not mistaken, and he is already becoming acknowledged as the best in the Middle East!  It’s going to be a great pleasure to work with him and I know he’s going to do very well in the U.S. as well.”


Can you tell us about his music style?


“Personally I am a big fan of his work and I’ve been a fan ever since his first single.  Follow him on TWITTER at, and FACEBOOK at”


Can you give us any more details on this upcoming project?


“I don’t want to ruin the surprise, but we have plans to begin shooting very soon!”



Thank you Director Tarik Freitekh
