Akbar Raza always wanted to convert his passion into his profession, for which he started working hard from starting . It all started in 2012, when he randomly uploaded a video on youtube talking about his school, because he did not have anything to talk about . One day his teacher introduced him to a Short film making inter school competition. so he participated in that competition and ranked 3rd in it. It was not just a rank 3 certificate for him, it was a life changing moment, because now he knew what he wanted to do in his life.
Challenges faced by Akbar Raza
Akbar Raza was the elder son of his family . His parents wanted him to do engineering . But he was not at all interested in engineering . To fulfill his parents’ desire he did engineering and side by side followed his passion . Beside this, he didn’t have good resources too .But he never lost hope and worked hard. The thing which kept him going was the belief ”that no matter how difficult the situation is, if you keep putting efforts even when the world is against you, it’ll all start falling into place at some point”.
How Akbar Raza Discovered a new field for himself .
Akbar Raza was into social media a lot . At that time there was a boom in social media and the best source of advertisement for the brands was through social media. The competition was cutthroat, but the thing which was not common was the videographic advertisement and he also saw that these advertisements were not very professional for the big car dealers. Because there was no difference between the commercial of a common man selling his product and a big car dealer doing that, he contacted big dealers and provided them the "professionalism" they needed to sell their product. To make it different from the common advertisements. That's how "Pentagon Motion Pictures was established".
