“The Cost of Speeding” is Abdullah Abu-Mahfouz’s first news segment for Al Jazeera after graduating from the network’s TV Reporting workshop. The story covers the speed limit change to 25mph in New York City. As the cinematographer and editor, Abdullah collaborated closely with journalists to help convey their narratives and gain firsthand experience in the fast-paced world of newsgathering. This opportunity allowed Abdullah to broaden his skillset and gain insights into the journalistic storytelling process, which is invaluable to his career as a film director. Working on a news segment honed his ability to adapt to different storytelling formats, work under tight deadlines, and collaborate with a diverse team.
