It’s been about two years over since i first started working on the project Saladin. A 3D TV animated series. And it was a real pleasure to see the the show coming to life and on a cinema screen!
That Tuesday was a special private screening for all of us who worked on the show. We all gathered and huddled in one isolated cinema number 9 to watch two episodes of Saladin.
My utmost favourite director in the world, Chi-Ren. He makes acting so much fun and entertaining haha. Sidetracking a bit, he never wears long pants. Since this was a very special occasion, he made the exception and presented everyone with no-hairy-legs but well covered slacks.. or were they jeans..??
Mo mo mo, he is one cool actor/producer/director! He’s well known in the middle east as the actor who usually plays the villain.His accent is something we all love to mimic. Because it sounds so cool!
Me pointing out what characters I’ve played as a motion capture actress. Huh, i hadn’t realised that the characters i played were all allocated to the left side of the screen. ^_^ There’s Anisa, Yasaman, Shadow and one more Saladin’s grandmama.
I really enjoy playing Anisa. She kicks butt and she has a mind of her own. Meet the female version of Aladdin, Anisa the street rat. She’s a very cunning thief and manipulative lady..but she has a heart too. She especially has a soft spot for Sal ^_^
The three different Anisa’s lol. Myself, Marina and Mynn. We’ve all played that role once. Whenever i can’t come in the girls will help fill in for me.
Me and Steven. He somehow only relates me with this character haha. Oh and everyone has to do the Anisa pose which is hand on the hips.
Everyone doing the Anisa pose again! Here are the motion capture actors. Marina, me, Zawen, Marvin and Mynn. Nicholas Pang who plays Saladin wasn’t around .
The motion capture cast with the mocap lady, Cynn. She’s no longer with the team, but when she was, you don’t mess with her. Her favourite word of the day.. OVERLAP! Those who have worked on motion capture will get it. I’ll explain it in another post. ^_^
The voice actors of the show. We’ve got Tony Yusoff, Gavin Yap, Rick Macivor, Chi-Ren, Dily and Shanthini Venugopal.
All the characters.. the main ones anyway. From left to right – Shadow, Duncan, Saladin, Tarik, Anisa and Behram.
Check out the trailer ^_^ here of Saladin the Animated series.
