One week down, seven to go

Sumolah's coming to its second week of principal photography in the coming week. The first week has been a hectic flurry of activity for everyone trying to get their footing in the production. All of us practically had only one week prior for pre-production, but it's been amazing how all the departments has been working amazingly intense to meet Afdlin's direction for the film.

Everything is falling into place now - principal photography is going with it's usual minor production hitches, all our artistes are locked in, and we need just one more major location locked in then we're good to go... And that's just for the KL shoot.

We've locked in July 28th - August 5th as our shoot dates in Fukuoka, Japan. So preparations for that like getting the visas done, booking flights and all has to be done this coming week.

That's mostly for my side of Sumolah as LP. I'll try to get photos of the production up as soon as I can grab someone's photos to upload!

Nokotta, Sumo-lah! Nokotta!

Yes people! From having just completed Los dan Faun, Afdlin and our amazing crew at Vision Works has jumpstarted Sumo-lah! back into production and everyone's excitedly and hurriedly working to begin shoot this coming weekend.

Tension is mounting at the moment as the crew are being hired one by one very quickly to begin work. Even for myself, as a new team member at Vision Works, jumping in to catch up after this wonderful group of people have spent on the year long in pre-production is kinda daunting. Nevertheless, I'm feeling really very grateful to Afdlin for taking me on board!

I'll be assisting in reviving this production blog and sprucing it up with as much information about the production as possible. Pictures, stories, and loads of interesting happenings. So, hopefully you'll stay tuned and be as excited as we are about this film!
