Shaub’s journey into TV and film started as early as 1996 when he appeared as the starring role in the Channel 4 produced ‘Bengali Backlash’, a documentary on racism in inner city London directed by Arun Kumar. The filmmaking process and especially the lens of the camera had a cathartic effect on Shaub; it changed his perspective and he realized he too could make an impact on the industry via film.
In 2009 Shaub put together a documentary for a non-profit football academy that was screened on the big screen at one of the most prestigious cinemas in the London - Empire Cinema in London’s West End. With the help of Kick It Out, The London Youth Games and local newspapers in Camden and Islington, Shaub was able to raise the profiles of the event, the documentary itself and his own personal profile as an active member of the UK film industry.
Shaub Miah has continued to work with Empire Cinemas screening his own shows and now he wants to screen a feature length film based on his short film ‘Death Do Us Apart’.
Shaub’s aims in life are to give back to the community by nurturing the next generations of directors and producers, he is doing this by working as a media specialist with a housing company called One Housing Group in the youth sector doing corporate and promotional materials for them.
Shaub’s ultimate passion lies with directing. Shaub continues to write film treatments and seek out screenwriters to realise their potential with full length feature or short film scripts, promote his own projects and those of others, direct, produce and edit projects. His goal is to become a well-established director and producer within.
