First official job project in KL

I have been so busy to be updating my status but here it is. I went to KL short notice on the 22nd March when i was called up by (Wedding Malaya OR Malaya Production) for a project to shoot a TV commercial (TVC) for one of the top textile labels in KL, 'Jakel' as a camera operator. I'm really honored and proud to be saying that this is my first official job project in KL.


I've experience even more with TV commercials from almost A-Z. From setting up to end product. Working with The Malaya was such an enjoyable experience as this thought me so much of the values in getting on board with something I've always wanted to try. TV Commercials. It's also such a pity, our local industry in TVC could not see my capabilities to do so and it pisses me off that it HAS TO BE A REAL PRODUCTION HOUSE in order to get jobs like this. My company does not have an office and that's one of the reasons why. Secondly, my in-house cameras are DSLRs where as such, shooting the TVC for 'Jakel', I operated the Canon 5D MkII!


But before i get on the wrong foot, I don't watch local channels and the only TVC I've seen before was ads for DST. Other than that, car commercials which isn't a product by locals. So, reading over what I just said, I don't think I'm interested anymore.


I'd love to share more infos on the shoot, behind the scenes footages and photos but I don't think i could just yet until the video is officially in the clients hands and launched on TV3 and perhaps Astro. I may also upload a rough-cut on the video. Need to ask permission.


Looking forward for more jobs in KL. A huge thank you to The Malaya for hiring me. They've been so great to me, wonderful hospitalities and so.

My 7th March Day

Apparently, RTB Rampai Pagi was too interested with me and called me up to do an interview session about my reputation in the media industry. More about wedding cinematography, my experience with shooting celebrity Sheikh Muszaphar wedding in Kuala Lumpur, my journey from the beginning with filmmaking and also my band, Not Famous.


It wasn't what i've expected to be from typical TV station. What i mean by this was, the show was really easy, straight-forward and it didn't consist of speaking in a primary language, Malay. It was random and I was speaking in Eng-Lay or Malay-ish which made it pretty comfortable cos that's the way we Bruneian's talk. Why go all standard right? Its a local TV station who is interviewing a local bloke like me. Cool part was, I didn't have to go to the studio and instead they came over to shoot me in my own so-called office!
In the afternoon on the other hand, I attended the British High Commission 'UK In Brunei' video competition that includes 13 enteries where I was picked to be one of the judges with 3 others. Yes, Anak Brunei Reeda Malik was also one of the judges. It was really cool of them to invite me and i was honored that one of the heads actually watched 'Break'. My mini web-series drama on Youtube. We sat there for almost an hour watching the videos one after another and in between each videos, we discussed about the video about messages that was sent. I also had the privilege to have my crew to shoot multi-cam to have this as a Behind-The-Scenes with the judges which was also a sponsor, a thank you for inviting me kinda way. The 4 winners were picked and i will also be attending on the 15th March for prize presentation to the winners.

Abbee + Soed's Videos


Here's the highlight video of their wedding shot on the 18th-20th February and was edited during my stay in Kuala Lumpur. Edited to be shown on the night of their wedding reception which was held somewhere at PutraJaya.

The Pre Wedding video is perhaps a post wedding video. We didn't have time to complete the video to be shown in Brunei as the groom was Malaysian and we had problems with sorting out the time to shoot. So, whilst i was in KL, we shot some of the parts, inserts, for the video that was also to be played during the night. Shot entirely on the 25th February and was editing this masterpiece less than 24hours! Reception took place on the 26th.


I must say, this was really challenging and luckily it was all done accordingly without any problems. Finished compiling the video, on to my pendrive at about 5pm and rushed to the venue ShangRila Resort (where they got dressed).
