Introducing MagSeven

Making documentaries gives me the ultimate satisfaction as journalist. I get to explore and indulge into certain topics in detail (rather than on the surface like news). It's more than just reporting. It involves story telling, like a movie but in reality.

During my 3 years with MedikTV, I became half a doctor as I learned about various health issues. I brought my experience to Majalah 3 and came up with a few health-related stories. That's the sweet thing about what I do. I have the opportunity to propose stories that are of my interest. Soon I also became a specialist in animal and military-related stories.

For 2011, I've been transfered to a new documentary called MagSeven. It is somewhat similar to Majalah 3 but MagSeven has a different target group - urban adult. The half hour english programme is purely documentary, without a host. Each episode will be produced by different producers. We have 5 producers in the team including myself - some of them with experience doing Majalah 3, Jejak Rasul and other core documentaries.

Oh wait, did I just mention that I am one of the producers? Hehe, yes! I've been given the responsibility to sit in the producer's seat for the first time! It is a promising sign for my career. What more, I will be producing the first episode of MagSeven. I was told by colleagues that it's suppose to set the benchmark. Oh, great...add more pressure to me, thanks! I also have to go on two morning talkshows this week to promote the show. The first episode will be aired this Sunday at 3.30pm on NTV7 (FYI, now that we are known as Primework Studios, we produce programmes for all TV channels, not just TV3.)

What is the first episode about, you ask? Well, the title is The Making Of The Champion Cat (cats, animals = my kinna thing). It's about how one cat lover would go to great lengths for the comfort of her cats and to win in cat competitions. You'll be amazed I tell ya! First class treatment all the way!

So please make a date with MagSeven this weekend and support my first ever self-produced programme. Meow! Thank you!
