I have to say that since I met Mahmood, years ago, I always was fond of the person/gentleman he is. Today, I have so much respect for Mahmood, not only on a personal level but also on the professional level. I was impressed by the professionalism that he and his team have always carried themself. I am blessed that I got to know this fine gentleman.

We worked with Arabia Video for project progress videos that were presented to VVIP and VIP officials. We were very happy with their work, punctuality and they always delivered on the agreed timeline. Videos were high quality and well made. We always look forward to take on new projects with Arabia Video.
