And we are back with our annual Projek Disko Baldi stage show, and this year, our theme is Dreams.
"Winner of the recent Kakiseni Audience Choice Award (Theatre) at the 10th BOH Cameronian Arts Awards, Projek Disko Baldi is back to take you on another random and hilariously mind-blowing journey with Dreams. Join the gang as they entertain you with sketches and original songs that look at the flipside of our dreams, hopes, ambition and nightmares"

Busan International Film Festival (BIFF, previously Pusan International Film Festival, PIFF Korean: 부산국제영화제, Hanja: 釜山國際映畵祭), held annually inHaeundae-gu, Busan (also Pusan), South Korea, is one of the most significant film festivals in Asia. The first festival, held from September 13 to September 21, 1996, was also the first international film festival in Korea. The focus of the BIFF is introducing new films and first-time directors, especially those from Asian countries. Another notable feature is the appeal of the festival to young people, both in terms of the large youthful audience it attracts and through its efforts to develop and promote young talent. In 1999, the Pusan Promotion Plan (renamed Asian Project Market in 2011) was established to connect new directors to funding sources. The 16th BIFF in 2011 saw the festival move to a new permanent home, the Busan Cinema Center. The Busan Cinema Center is a USD140 million structure designed by Austria-based architecture collective Coop Himmelblau. The about 30,000 m² Cinema Center includes a 4,000-seat outdoor theatre; four indoor screens under an LED-covered roof; media centre; archive space; and conference rooms; allowing the festival to include industry forums and educational activities.

I think it is important to know the purpose of doing something.
But let's not get stuck on debating the why's when you can already start on the what's and the how's.
And of course, the who's and the when's.
Let's get moving.
and in the words of Reel 2 Real. : (I like to) Move it Move it!
In different context of course.

Last 4 months plus was a hell of a ride, and went away with a blink of an eye.
Wrapped Playground's first feature film. Now in post production. Exciting ride with a bunch of talented cast and also experienced crew. I know that the word is out, but can't wait till we have an official Press Conference so that i can start talking about this further. :).
However, the biggest thing that i learn is that you give space and have trust in the people you work with. They will give you their best. Which is all that matters.
90 hari, our second tele movie was another experience. We were quite nervous because we were playing with a serious issue, but still trying to keep it light. Received good reviews, even from my aunt who rarely watches any TV. Although there were a few hurdles, alhamdulillah, it went well nevertheless.
Also, just wrapped our shoot for the Disko Baldi Show, which consisted of the live studio recordings and also the digital sketches. It was a great eperience working with Phuturephlow. They really took care of us talents and all of us had a great time. Can't wait to get to see the cuts.
Really would like to thank Phuturephlow for believing in us all the way. Let's hope for a second season. :).
This week is the first week of rest that i get.
After this we have 2 theatre productions :
"Disko Baldi Dreams" and our Family Theatre arm Box of Delights : The Fantastic Mr. Fox.
It's going to be a great year.
