BACK IN THE HOOD Y'ALL


Whoa…it’s been a while since I’ve blogged properly about something. It’s all been copy and pasting. I don’t know. I just haven’t got around in doing this other than checking on NotFamous’s website and Facebook fan page and also my Twitter. Perhaps, you readers ARE reading my Tweets on the side bar on the left, who knows.

Well, obviously I’m still doing wedding videography. I still do events and have loads of them pending due to several reasons which I shall not state. So pretty much, I’m rushing to finish them as quickly as possible without being distracted from the outside world of my home. Lately, I’ve been going out a lot sorting all kinds of stuffs. I still do my work late at night and I’m really irritated by the fact that I’m out of ideas. Everything’s the same and I wanna change how I’m doing my work. It’s getting old.

As a matter of fact, I’ve already developed some new products which may be extraordinary enthralling for 2010. Obviously for weddings off course. Don’t take this as a huge statement okay, I’m not trying to act up all perfect and wow. Everyone is doing something new everyday. That is why I’ve got my left and right hand men on the job to work with. Surkrew. We’re basically coming out with secret mixtures which may be challenging, entertaining and motivating to do with weddings. I don’t see anyone doing it yet. Unlike Brunei, there aren’t much full-time videographers. Most of them do it as part time whilst working elsewhere.

I’m pretty excited myself because we, the Visual Dimensions team, have a couple of confirmation/bookings already on the new product. Actually, I just remembered something…I DID mention it already before about it. Hahaha….

As you can see below, I’ve created another new short film entitled ‘The Shape’. It’s another experimental project where my buddy had included his new glidecams and DIY mini-dolly. Quite impressive. Check it out. It’s better than my first one.

Hmm…other than wedding/short film works, my band NotFamous has been doing video blogs! It’s kinda fun to do really. We shoot at least once a week about the things that has been going on with the band just to guarantee you that NF is essentially working their butts off to get back on track and to finally record the 2nd album! It’s pretty exciting. You should check it out on our website. As of today, we’ve got 6 entertaining video blogs. More to come.

We’ve also recently played 2 shows in 2weeks and it was absolutely thrilling to finally get back on stage and perform. I however never felt happier to be back with my brother and cousin in one band. Written quite a lot of numbers and preparing them all accordingly before walking in the studio in January! This shall be good because cameras will show you what’s going on in the upcoming video blogs.

I’ve finally purchased myself a brand new guitar effect pedal. I thought that I might use it for the second album to have some special sounds once in my riffs. During our first album and playing in live shows, I have NEVER used anything else but a direct lead from my guitar and amplifiers. The style I had back then was to have a really Blues type of tone. A light dry distorted sound. But how do I get a clean sound if I have to? Well, easy really, a basic technique where you can change it from your guitar knobs. I know.

But since our NF comeback, I’ve also realized that everyone of the band members have new sound settings. Perhaps we’re just getting older and now we understand what sounds good and what doesn’t.

Chow.

THE SHAPE (EXPERIMENTAL) PART II

 
One of my latest creations with my partner in crime, Shopian Said (Surkrew). Shot with a Canon EOS 500D, glidecams (which we just bought) and a DIY mini dolly. We didn't used any lightings and we spent at least, probably approaximately 6hours of shooting. Starring myself as The Shape and Shopian Said hmiself as The Victim. This is ONLY and experimental short film and we don't really expect much from it. It's just a learning process in using all these gadgets we had during the night. Hope you like it, Enjoy.

YESTERDAY AT BIG TOP OGDC SERIA



NotFamous rides Big Top OGDC Seria, Sunday afternoon after other local bands such as Bulan, Pemuzik Kena Reject as well as Klip. It was quite a remarkable comeback for the band as they’ve performed latest songs from the upcoming album as we speak.




NotFamous aren’t 18 anymore and as I observed the comments from Twitter, Facebook and blogs, apparently NF is given excellent credits for the 2010 comeback. NotFamous would like to take the opportunity to thank everyone who have been so encouraging from day 1, not forgetting the fans/families and old friends who came to OGDC.

NotFamous performed 5 newly fresh materials entitled ‘First Contact’, ‘B Positive’, ‘Another Untold Story’, ‘I think It’s Time (Uh-Oh)’ and also ‘Back To TerraFirma’ which was one of the first songs they’ve written together before the break 4 years ago. This was also right after the unreleased single ‘Day After Tomorrow’ launched on PureVolume and radio stations.

NotFamous is looking forward to be performing more shows/gigs next year as they record the new album in studios (undecided) by January-February. In the mean time, its all about improvising the songs one after another and to try them out in shows to see audience reactions. From the looks of it, the crowd are enjoying them very much…as we speak! Although, performing live is not the same when listening to the original record. It’s just head start on what’s been created.


NotFamous may also be interested in submitting a couple of singles to VIMA 2010 as this was already been discussed by BIM’s founder, Rita. Referring to the previous conversation, the latest to submit the songs is in February. Will be updating more about this.

P/s: Don’t forget to stay tune to NF V-blogs. An activity of NF’s journey on the making of the album as well as casual days on a regular basis.

NOTFAMOUS FIRST PERFORMANCE SOON


Haven’t been posting up anything lately due to work I’ve been doing. Shooting and editing and between breaks, writing song lyrics. I don’t know whether you know this but, NotFamous (my band) will be performing in 2 events this month for the first time after 4 long years break.

The closest one is dated on the 20th at OGDC Seria. Along with other bands, we shall be performing for 30minutes each and after doing a draft calculation, it might be approximately 5 songs. FIVE new song teasers from the upcoming 2nd album of 2010! So if you are interested, do come and support. For more information, please visit our website. The 2nd event shall also be in Seria (address to be announced soon) but apparently, we haven’t a clue how many songs yet. Hopefully a few more as we have missed doing entertainments.

We aren’t really keen in playing our old songs but probably just a couple such as our hit single ‘Second Song’ and unreleased called ‘Day After Tomorrow’. We just thought it’s probably best to carry on with the latest ones as part of a new beginning. Listening to the old album really gave us goosebumps! Not sure how and why but most likely how annoying our recording was. In mind, I also didn’t quite like my obsessions with Blink182 being inputted into my songwriting. I know! But younger kids love them!

But the importance of this post is that, if you are free, if there are ANY NF fans out there who is willing to attend, please do, we need you. Sign up to our website!
