Well I should give some update on this.
Last two weeks were pretty fun, was involved in two independent films shoot. Finally completed the one made for the BMW shorties with the Theme H20 by Wan Azhar. Why the heck it is water, please don’t ask me. The submission date was just last Friday, the 21st of March. Whoever wins the shorties will get RM75K to make another movie…. Honestly I really don’t think that ie remotely enough to make a film. But it depends how creative you are, to make the best of what little resources one has.
Hope that film makes it somewhere but boy was the shooting process for the last day a real torture. The scene we had to do was in Masjid Negara and that area is like some jungle, so I got like 15 mosquitoe bites all over my legs!!!!!! And they weren’t tiny bites, when I get biten they become huge!!! So yeah the things I do for the sake of getting experiences. But that’s done and over with yay!
And also managed to do one shoot with my friend Juliane Block who was in my Practical Aesthetics class. Juliane is from Germany and is trying her hand at film making, check out her production house site. She recently showed one of her works Unsecured Loan at KLPAC Open Day. I’m not entirely sure on what the synopsis is but it is about loan sharks and the mafia. I found the cinematography impressive and when i saw the trailer I was pretty keen on watching it… sadly I haven’t yet though. You can check it out here.
Anyways the one and the rest of the class helped her in shooting was her new short film “Emperor”. I had to act as a Hawker lady or more so a waitress at a chinese restaurant. It was a very short scene but i think it was really funny! First of all because I’m a complete banana, and problem with that was I had top say my very short short line in Cantonese.
All i had to say was “Please go, please go” in Cantonese… which on the first few runs sounded very odd. Hahaha. :hehe: But after few rounds of rehearsal I managed to get it. It didn’t help though that my mafia guy i was suppose to serve was laughing and whenever i said it :punch: Don’t laugh on the set!!!
Our Director Juliane Block (she’s wearing the jacket) and Asst Director Crystal hard at work, preparing some stuff.. or was it after…the shoot??
Both occasions were pretty fun and glad that I got to meet some new people and catch up with some old friends. ^_^
