After finishing an education in video, editing and camera, AZIZ left for an internship in Zambia. It was here he discovered he wanted to go to the Netherlands Film Academy, from which he indeed graduated in 2015. Born in Tripoli Libya, raised in a small town called Zeeland in the province of Brabant, he paused in Nijmegen and Utrecht for a while before moving on to Amsterdam, where he still resides. This is also where he plays soccer, three times a week, in different teams. Possibly a remnant of his younger days, when he dreamt of being a famous football player. But he also wanted to be a journalist, since he really likes to tell stories. And this is what he does, telling stories with a human touch. After all it’s all about the one in front of the camera, about what he or she has to say and give when offered full space. But Aziz doesn’t discriminate. Even if he shoots a bench in a park he wants to know why it’s there, listen to its story and grant it a personality. Yes, maybe you can say thinking everything through and adding meaning to every shot is Aziz’s trademark. That, and Rammstein of course, preferably very loud.
