Script Writing

 

The Science Museum’s learning team commissioned me to help them script a hand-drawn animation about science capital and museums.

I have worked with 1001 Inventions, the award-winning international science and cultural heritage organisation, for over ten years. In 2018 I wrote the script for a theatre show 1001 Inventions and Cures from the East, about how pioneers from the East contributed to modern day healthcare and medicine. It launched with a live event at the Royal Society in London in which Emma King played Lady Mary Montague and Nicholas Khan played Al-Zahrawi, with the Al Firdous Ensemble.

 

I helped write the story for the short film 1001 Inventions and the World of Ibn al-Haytham (2015) working with director Ahmed Salim. The film, about the 10th-century pioneer in light and vision Ibn al-Haytham, was a key element of UNESCO’s celebrations in 2015 for the International Year of Light.
