OUR STORY

3rd action is a different action and space, where minds and considerations participate and cooperate in a way leading to the light that shines the world through a small skylight we call Cinema screen, while intellectuals and enthusiasts like to call it the “Seventh Art”.

It is the transformations of this age that transferred light from a skylight in a small space to eyes as wide as the world in a poise pursuit to attract elite screenwriters who will accompany you from different parts of the world.

3rd action represents a stable focal point for a number of consultants, advisors, and those interested in the film making industry from the United States, Canada, Europe, and the Middle East. We have enough mobilization and innovation power to influence a different approach to production in the Middle East and throughout the world. We are working on new ways to explore, edit, and implement the script/lines before you make it a memorable experience.
