It is then that his passion for making movies flourished and he began his career as an amateur filmmaker. In late 2009, Faraj had a break-through with his 39 minute drama “The Artist” which garnered international acclaim at various film festivals. At age 21, he produced, wrote, and directed his first feature film “The Shadow People” which eventually led to many opportunities working on a multitude of film sets in Los Angeles and New York City.
Since then, Faraj has made a diverse range of features and short films, and has been recognized by many critics and media outlets including The Hollywood Reporter, Collider, ComingSoon.net, JoBlo, Film Threat, and many more. Faraj is a 2-time champion of the Cleveland 48 Hour Film Project and is currently in production on his first major television show.
