About Yahya

In 2002 I founded a non profit organization that teaches the youth to fight obesity and bullies thought boxing, fitness and education. I currently teach boxing to the youth and train some professionals. Some have gone as far as the 2016 Olympic trials while others have become world champions. I am a teacher with the passion to teach and the patience to practice persuasion and persistence, because proper preparation prevents poor performance.

My passion is what got me started. I make my first film in 2005 after the film festival circuit and after being nominated for three different categories without any proper schooling, I decided to go back to school to learn Properly. Since that time, I've won Best Short film at an annual film contest, PVIFF. And I won Best Director against 43 film makers from around the world at the Chelsea Film Festival.

I am a very passionate about film and I love to teach. I have patience to explain over and over if need be. Have a look at my Fb I have two pages and let's get to the business of film making.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Video Production

I have 10 years of experience in film making. After my first film was nominated for three awards at the San Diego Black Film Festival I realized that I had a future in film making. I've since enrolled and finished in a video production course at the Art Institute of Atlanta. Since then I have won two Awards, one for Best Short Film at the 10th Annual PVIFF in Atlanta and in New York at the Chelsea Film Festival, against 42 other film makers from around the world, I won Best Director. I also happen to be the Writer, Director, Producer, trash sweeper or whatever it takes to get it done. I can share my experiences and knowledge of film making from a hands on perspective.
