Omid Taslimi

filmmaker and photographer

Hi, I am Omid. Born in 1986, from a Swiss mother and an Iranian father, I was raised in Basel. I never wanted to be a filmmaker or an artist. My dream was always to create harmony in this world. As a little kid i wanted to be a cop until I realized that they are just the executive forces and can't change the system. When I came to school I wanted to be a lawyer or a politician until I realized that the system has failed and can't be changed by laws or referendums. But as time didn't wait until i found my calling, I had to make a decision and became a carpenter, just to learn how to craft and create. That's when I found my creative vein. When I had an accident at work I realized that I was on the wrong path, so I took a second attempt and because I love making music I became an audio engineer. During this education I've learned how to control frequencies to control peoples emotions and minds. That's when I found out, by changing peoples minds I can influence the system to bring harmony to the world. And the most effective way to change peoples minds is film making. If I was a superhero, emotion would be my superpower.
