Bilal Sami

Alumni, Film

Born to a photographer father, a watercolorist mother and later joined by an architect brother in Lahore Pakistan, Bilal has spent a lifetime trying to fluff up his aura in order to artificially generate the sort of talent the rest of his family was born with. This has resulted in various adventures in acting,
screenwriting, directing and producing. Not quite satisfied with the permanent scarring caused by this on his ego, Bilal decided to subject himself to another round of the same by applying to film school. AtOhio University’s Film School Bilal finds himself in the company of talented students and teachers. While steadily diminishing his bank balance here he hopes to make movies.
