Lama tak blogging. Hidup lebih penting. banyak hal kena attend. Artis dalam diri gua dah lama tidur. Ushawan dalam diri gua, tak cukup tidur. Jiwa kosong seketika. Industri filem masih macam tu. takde perubahan. Lobby dah kuat. tapi hasil tak ada.
Gua tengah shoot Kapoww dengan Azizi Chunk. Sebuah filem superhero yang di bintangi Zizan Raja Lawak. Looks like a lot of FUN. Lisa SuriHani is cute, cun and hot. I like Zizan he is hardworking commited and tak betul. Awie is osso in it. He is Ultraman Kelantan. hahaha Rabak SIot.
Latiff adik Prof. says my films are 'komedi orang puteh' dan tidak cater to 'true Malays'. WHATEVER latiff!!! Kau buat filem kau aku buat filem aku sudahlah...Niat kau dengan niat aku lain. Aku taknak kaya sambil memperbodohkan bangsa aku. Biarlah aku tak kaya pun takpe. Kalau box office jadi pengukur kau... kaulah juara.... SIFU dan Tongga. Syabas. Filem yang membanggakan.....???? Filem kau memang sesuai utk target market kau- bebudak. The true mass market bro. Filem gua di targetkan kepada golongan dewasa sikit kut. So lets just agree to be different.
Yasmin you are right about the language issue. There are more things in film that we can do that transcends language. I understand that. I love films in other languages too. I'd go watch it. But even Oliver Stone quoted Winston Churchill in the forum the other day, when asked wether Asian films can make it big Internationally, he said that "You guys are dreaming, it will never happen because We have the most powerful weapon in the world, The English language!"... In building a strong local film industry, i still believe we are severely handicapped because the mass is not united by a common language, so just mostly a fraction of the Malays watch malay films. English movies (besides being big budget) get big box office in Malaysia because The other MASS MARKET which includes all races, really like Tom Cruiise, Leonardo DiCaprio, Violence, sex, gore and most importantly they understand the English language. But i am tired and bored of talking about the industry.... I will just keep on doing my silly komedi orang puteh until nobody wants to watch it anymore.
Lastly Kabir Bahtia, has a rocking new film called 'SETEM' .Terbaik Jack. He is such a talented director and a great storyteller and i hope you all give him the support by watching this film. The trailer dah keluar kat YOUTUBE. SO CHeck it up guys.
So thats all for now guys,
POWER TO THE PEOPLE
