Everything About HD

For the first time ever, I was sent overseas for a course. Me and 13 other people from Media Prima...

We selected for the 3-day HD Production workshop in Singapore (hey it's still overseas :P)...
We stayed at the Robertson Quay Hotel, which is by the river. We crossed the river every day to get to the academy. A good workout, definitely. 
The trainers are influential people in the industry too. There's Jeremy Humphries, an award-winning BBC trained Director of Photography. He has worked for Discovery Channel and National Geographic...
Behind him is Nic Chee, an award-winning filmmarker from Singapore.

We were divided into groups for our hand-on training - all about HD production...

We also utilized the studio to learn about shots and lighting...

And for one day only, we had the privilege of  learning from an Oscar-winning Hollywood art director, Ian Bailie. Did you know he's the one who created the set for the first Batman movie back in the 90s? You know, with Jack Nicholson as The Joker. This guy built Gotham City!
It surely was an interesting 3-day workshop. I learnt so much about HD production which I can immediately apply in my work.
Unlike my friends from Jelajah Joran and Dunia Tersembunyi, I haven't had the chance to shoot on HD yet. But I am totally ready to do so for my next documentary project, after learning so much about it...
5 days in Singapore (3 days of workshop and 2 days to travel back and forth), it was all worth it...

Baby Bunny On Location

I was shooting Bersamamu in Melaka recently and came across the most peculiar little rabbit. It belonged to the person we were shooting with. According to her, the rabbit was born that way. Its other siblings were given away but not this one. No one wanted it because it's weird.

Well, take a look for yourself at just how odd this little bunny is...

Kesian kan?

The bunny caught the attention of my make up artist. She fell in love with it and brought it back home to KL. She calls it Mu Mu. Cute :)

His First KFC

Jimmy is the second child out of 3. His father abandoned the whole family about 5 years ago, and soon after that his mom's kidneys failed, which greatly affected her ability to work.

And this is his first KFC experience...

It's the little things in life that we take for granted but means the world to kids like him. It gives me great pleasure to fulfil their cravings and see the joy on their faces.

Bersamamu let's us do that. One of the reasons why I like what I do :)

Car Seat Loving Kid

I'm glad Raees doesn't have an issue with the car seat. In fact, he voluntarily goes on it when we enter the car.

Somehow it doesn't matter where the car seat is at...

And he even attempts to buckle up.

It's simple things like this that makes me smile and just makes my day :)
