Producer's nightmare

AHMAD NISFU RAWKS!

Well, it's been 7 months since work on SUMOLAH has started and though the end in sight the problems keep piling up. If i pulled a strand of hair for every obstacle that we have encountered, I am pretty sure that i would be botak by now. Did i mention i hate capital investors.

Anyways, My Assistants have been working hard working their asses of trying to keep to deadlines and make sure everything is in order. It looks like my first Assistant Director has jumped ship, without even telling me but in my heart i understand his reasons. It's just his typically Malay attitude towards dealing with situations that i cannot tahan. My co-producer is also missing, so i am working on this baby alone. Thankfully, my beautifoo wife (she's such a trooper) has agreed to jump into the assistant producer shoes and is doing a heck of a job.

Yesterday night we had a major drama incident happening when GURMIT SINGH (aka Phua Chu Kang) who is in town for SUMO training, realised that he had rashes due to possibly being bitten by a mite or it's buglike kin in his hotel suite. This is a major concern for us as it will not do for our actor's to have rashes when appearing on camera in their mawashis. So,he was rushed to the clinic and was dutifully given a job to relieve him of the reaction. Now he is recuperating in his room, so that he can recover just in time for SUMO training where we will put him through more physical abuse. heehee. But KUDOS to GURMs for being such a trooper and an insanely commited actor.

More notes to follow....

NOKOTTA, NOKOTTA, NOKOTTA!!!!

wow..it seems like its a war...it's always a wonder watching a movie and knowing all the hardships they endure, all the tricks they do just to get by the obstacles, and in the end, presenting us with a masterpiece. that's why I love reading and watching The Making Ofs and PPDs (Post Production Diaries).

hope you can post some videos of your current progress.You can find this fuction in www.youtube.com.
wishing you all the best, and remember..

kami semua berada dua langkah di belakang mu...
