I LOVE THE CHALLENGE, BUT I HATE THE WORK.



Yes, ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls, illegal immigrants and legal aliens, i am talking about producing FILMs. Memang susah jadi produser filem ni. Sentiasa perlu memikir cara untuk mengurangkan kos supaya filem kita tak rugi, mesti ruthless dan hati kering. On top of that dealing with the financiers are a major pain in the ass, as they don't really care about the movie content itself and what the artist is trying to achieve with the creative endeavour, but rather "HOW WILL WE GET OUR MONEY BACK?", itu aje. It's just business to them and this is how they got succesful running their business.
Getting in bed with them is a necessary evil, but no matter how good they say their deal is, you always get a feeling that ur ass has been penetrated by a long blunt object after a session of dealings with them.
Yes!! my fellow ROMANs.... Movie making in MALAYSIA is a major bitch and a half and then some. As a director, we are at the constant mercy of the producer, but to be fair, the producer is answerable to the investor/financial institution/ Ah-Long/ Funder/money man. Just look at Castello, the FILM literally looked like a 2 hour Julie's commercial. MONEY talks bullshit walks.
Sometimes i wish that life would be easier but then again i realise, nothing in this life is free. Anyone who believe that he can get away with things for free, has an inmate number waiting for him at penjara KAJANG.
On a lighter note, Gurmit Singh is coming down from Singapore today to do SUMO training with us. He will be here from the 16th till the 19th January.
We wish him good luck and happy thighs.
NOKOTTA, NOKOTTA, NOKOTTA!!!!!

alo tuan busat,

lu punyer job no doubt memang ader different skit. lawak semua tahap dewa. tapi tak leh tackle untuk veteran nyer age i.e. tok pah and datuk aku tak leh paham ko nyer lawak.

satu lagi, apsal semua pelakon yang berlakon dalam mobie tuan busat semua lu punya kroni aje i.e. harith, hans, nasha aziz (nasha tak per- i memang really love nasha). hidup memang untuk kroni ajer ker? aper kata lu develop muka2 baru pulak. bagi peluang kat diarong plak.

Just luv your work... since kat 'theater pondok', 'Aha'... till skrg 'baik punye cilok', buli balik (& can't wait for 'sumo-lah'), masih nampak your trade mark. Bravo u tak lupa kan kulit u maa... & u + harith memang ideal couple/group...8-) Just luv u guys...

Anyway, dulu2 penah gak kiter p concert sheila majid/zainal abidin(RAP) @stadium merdeka & u menyanyi... Tak perasanlah apa fungsi u but kiter perasan lah u ada nyanyi jugak lah... & suara not bad... Soalannye: awat lame sangat dok ndak keluarkan album solo?... dok peram suara utk dptkan confident ker?... ;)
