Al Mahabba Awards

For thisĀ Al Mahabba Awards Commercial, one shot required to replace a strand of hair, hidden in the helmet of the lead character Khaled, with the one taken from the photo below, which is believed to be a real strand from the hair of the Prophet Mohammed himself. Since it is much too valuable to be brought on a film-set, it was decided to insert it digitally.

The commercial was directed by Academy Award Winner Stefan Ruzowitzky.
