MEET: ABDULLAH KHAN

Abdullah Khan, a 22-year-old writer, director, and Forbes "30 Under 30" Honoree, is exclusively profiled in the August edition of VIEWTIES. Founded and created by Vanesa Miraglia, this UK-based digital publication celebrates the arts and spotlights creatives who serve "as a bridge that connects viewers with the beauty behind the lens."
▫️
During an extensive interview with Vanesa, Abdul was asked a number of thought-provoking questions, including, "Have you taken some qualities from the people you have worked with? How do you feel these experiences working on sets have shaped your identity in your craft?"
▫️
And, in response, Abdul noted, "The people I have worked with have had a huge influence on me. I remember being on set, incredibly naïve but totally passionate about the industry and I think most people responded well to that. But film sets are a place full of artists and egos, so it can be difficult to navigate through them. I think the most important thing I learned was that you are never too important to be nice to people. JJ Abrams, George MacKay, Andrew Rowlands, Pippa Harris are just some of the individuals who have inspired me to think like that. I was drawn to these people, as they were professionals with a lot of power, but the way they used it and the energy that they projected, were different from others in the industry, and this made them quite special to me."
