    2013, I’m Lovin’ it so far ! Give me moreeeeeee!!

    Thursday, January 10th, 2013

    *  This is like my first blog post after more than a year in hibernate mode *

     

    yawnnzz….. Mum woke me up yesterday and passed me an A4 size envelope from the mail man.  Half asleep, I manage to open the cover without  damaging the content. To my surprise I got this !

    Well it’s a certificate of participation for my debut short film- Enough ! [bass in hindi] from BMW shorty. Overjoyed and my beauty sleep went down the drain but who cares 😛 !! I was thinking : ” hmmm that’s nice way to start my day and the year as well..”

    After long back packing trip from India, it’s my 1st day back to reality (WORK!) .

    While my outlook mailbox was busy loading the past one month emails, I was just running through some inspirational websites to boost my work mood after a month long break (no,it was all safe for work place [NSFW] websites ok!).

    And I recalled that actually the short film that I mentioned earlier was made for some other competition and I actually didn’t follow up with the results with the assumption that I did not receive any email from the organizing committee. Hence I decided to have a quick peek on the winner list  and see how bad I sucked compared to the other finalists.

    As I was scrolling down the page (click here) and I found this at the 7th thumbnail !

    I couldn’t believe my eyes! The debut short film of mine – Enough ! [bass in hindi] made it to the finals!!! And dumb me just gotta know this after one and the half month!!!!

    I was a lil upset earlier that my shorty didn’t even make it to our very own Malaysian BMW Shorty competition but managed to console myself that, that’s okay as it’s my first attempt so don’t be greedy son. But this is like….OMG!!!!!!

    Oh ya by the way, it’s the 4th International Wordless Short Film Festival that selected my entry and made it as one of the finalist. To add the icing on the cake that I’m savoring in cloud nine,  it’s the only entry from Malaysia and one of the 5 of Asian entries for the competition made it there. The movie was premiered at Armory Theater, Sydney Olympic park, Australia on the 25th of Nov 2012.

    I wish I was there to witness our work on the screen with people all around the world who attended the “big” day!

    Just in case you have not watched it before, Bass (Hindi for ‘Enough’) depicts an orphan character who struggles to survive in the concrete jungle where he resorts to his artistic talents as a means of escapism and livelihood. The film is about the exploitation of an artist in the art industry and how the character faces it.

    Yes we didn’t win the best movie or any award from that but, hey we made it there! Its like a great boost for me and my team to make more attempts in near future. I have no words to express my gratitude to everyone who supported me throughout the whole process of making it and during the time when I was down thinking I made real crappy stuff and wasted viewers 9.42minutes of their life.

    Thanks again to everyone especially the jury panel of 4th International Wordless Short Film Festival for selecting Enough! as one of the best 20 from the rest of the participants all over the world.

    Thanks to EVERYONE!! You know who you are!

    Dance Photography – Vision of Forever – Rehearsal

    Saturday, January 8th, 2011

    ‘Vision of Forever’ is an Odissi production of the highest caliber exemplifying works of the late Odissi pioneer Guru-Deba Prasad Das. Artistic director Ramli Ibrahim is unapologetic in his forthcoming of the spiritual depth of the complex psyche of India.

    I had documented the whole vision of forever dance show from the arrival of the dancers till the end of the show. hence the album will go by 3 sequels , arrival, getting ready and the main show and this is the 1st part of the series.

    I know this is like reading an old newspaper for those who are my facebook friends. But I just thought of make some interesting noise over here with some colorful dance photographs as well on my blog besides wedding pictures.

    Special thanks to Master Ramli Ibrahim, Sutra Dance Theatre and the sutra dancers.

    Studio portraiture- Hanusha,the classical dancer

    Friday, December 18th, 2009

    I was never keen of shooting portraiture using strobes (studio lighting set in layman term) till the day I did it for Hanusha. Brief intro about the model, Miss Hanusha Janendran. She is a blogger, me also blogger, her boyfriend raj kumar also a blogger so we know each other on blog-o-sphere some years back and one fine day I got a job offer in the same company where they are working and ever after that we go yam cha and mamam all together, so we got close. I know i know its a bad introduction, I’m sleepy, so bare with me. 😛

    To cut is short, she was preparing herself for her classical dance graduation which she’s learning since the age of 4. So for the graduation performance night, she need to prepare some booklets and banner and yea, of course its gonna be her photos in it.

    I was honored to shoot her and we decided to do the shoot in NeoStudio with strobes and the back drop which I felt its like so out of my league and I was lil nervous as it’s gonna be something important for her graduation night. She was good in her poses and expression so it made me  comfortable and confident shooting her and experimenting the artificial lights, it was fun though!!! We completed the shoot within an hour and I went back exhausted but excited.

    The booklet and the invitation card was designed by rames and it can be downloaded over here . To be honest, I never thought that it would turn out that well, hats off to the designer, rames! I think i’m sleepy now, that’s why writing too much and boring you guys, I better shut it and let the picture speak.
