Pasport Ekspres

Had a chance to work with Rewan Ishak on a Short for Astro's MyHometown. Alhamdulillah, it has gained traction. I think it resonated well since it offers something different than the usual rempits, hantus, and gangsters. Passport Ekspres has been sent to Festival Filem Malaysia 2012. Let's see where it will bring us.

In a bigger picture, looking at the profit record in the FINAS website, the community has spoken. They want to be offered at least a storyline and good acting. Audiences are definitely getting smarter. Filmakers have to now think about growing more writers and more importantly directors who are also story tellers. Lining up gags just don't cut it anymore.

You need not go far. There are lots of new talents around. Just have to open up to the youngsters.

Sometimes people forget. Be it on a film or a TV screen, it is still storytelling at its core. It's just a different media.

Here you go, Pasport Ekspres. Enjoy.
