Team Incision is headed by CEO & Director Shariq M. Khan, who has a rich experience spanning two decades of active experience in marketing, filmmaking, and video direction, having worked with various mediums for multiple industries.
Shariq has the honor of being Pakistan’s first and only director to have worked on a Ridley Scott Associates production as a director, directing part of the immensely successful UKTI production “The Great Campaign”, a global campaign that was initiated by the UK Prime Minister’s Office. To get to this level, Shariq has traversed every sort of challenging production environment and filmed in locations as diverse as the varied geographical landscape that Pakistan has to offer. He has directed commercials, documentaries, music videos, and TV shows for some of the leading names in Pakistan, making him a true full-spectrum director. His extensive travels around the world, ranging from world metropolis to small rural towns have given him a unique taste, a blend that reflects a touch of both in most of his productions, making them stand out as surreal visual treats. His documentary on Maryam Mukhtiar, Pakistan’s first female fighter pilot to have been immortalized in national memory won critical and widespread acclaim alike, simply because Shariq was personally invested in the project as he is a firm and ardent believer in the equality of women in every role.
A musician at heart and member of a band that sold over 3 million albums in India, music and rhythms are at the core of each of his productions catering to the harmony in nature. He has worked with multiple TV Channels, three of which he helped set up. Among other past highlights, he has a Masters in Literature (Films and Documentaries). He graduated Summa Cum Laude from the Beacon House National University, Lahore.
Shariq represented Pakistan in the Red Bull Production Partners Workshop held in Sri Lanka, organized by Red Bull Media House for production partners in South Asian countries. Unilever, Red Bull, VimpelCom, China Mobile, Jazz, Zong, Pakistan Air Force, and Navy are just some of Shariq’s very content clients. Shifting his focus to a greater cause for the country and the future of the people, he is working as the voice for the anti-tobacco campaign in Pakistan with the NGO he established, called Chromatics.
