Today we’d like to introduce you to Shahan Mohammed.
Shahan, can you briefly walk us through your story – how you started and how you got to where you are today.
In 1983 my grandfather and father founded a video production company in Karachi specializing in storytelling through films. They began a dream to tell compelling stories. A few days and 35 years later, we have emerged as a diversified family-owned enterprise with the following business segments: wedding photography & video, live multi-camera video production, production design, projection mapping, and event technology.
Overall, has it been relatively smooth? If not, what were some of the struggles along the way?
It has been anything but a smooth ride. We have been stricken by challenges time and time again, but our persistence has kept us afloat. Today it seems absurd but a big challenge for the company in the early days was transitioning from analog to digital.
Please tell us about Samson Productions.
During the last three decades, Samson Productions expanded regularly into new segments of the business. The more prominent of these segments are photography, multi-camera video production, production design, projection mapping (Samson MediaWorks), and event technology. Annually we photograph/film more than 4oo events.
I was born into a business family, and from a young age, I was driven to create experiences/stories that move and inspire people. I don’t consider myself as someone who is self-made, I’ve been a millionaire my whole life, but it has its hurdles, I have to prove myself constantly. As the leading designer of Samson MediaWorks my specialty is immersive scenic designs. What makes us exceptional as a company is the very characteristic I’m the proudest of, it’s our value system and principles.
If you had to go back in time and start over, would you have done anything differently?
I don’t tend to look back, but surely there are things I could’ve done differently. My focus is on continually strengthening our market position by putting our customers first.
