SHORT ACTION FILM: HVT Run

I didn’t want to announce this until I was sure it was complete – and here it is! During the Raya season I collaborated with a group of friends to direct and produce a short action film of our own.

Presenting… HVT Run!

Behind The Scenes And Bloopers:

In 2011 and 2012, I made two attempts to put out a short action film for the fun of it. Even though we shot the pre-production footages – painstakingly – they never got past post-production because we were hinging our hopes on one guy to do it… and well… he sucks balls.

That was in spite of working with the likes of Dan Khoo, Joseph Germani and JinnyBoyTV on the second round and at the time, it seemed so surefire that the short action film will be out.

I was upset about it though I know that the opportunity will come again, and I will do it myself when I meet the right group of people and find someone reliable to do the post-production, even if it means paying my way through for a non-profit film.

And I finally did this time!

So in more ways than one, I feel accomplished that the completion of this piece has redeemed me of my past failed attempts, YES!

It’s not without its mistakes but then again, which movie makes no mistakes? Haha!

I look forward to making more like this in the near future, when I am not working. ­čÖé

Thanks Gero Azrul for inviting me as a VIP guest to your event last week in Putrajaya! Truly exceeded expectations as I thought the short notice invitation to be not beyond catching up with other local Internet marketers and having dinner after fasting.

Your presentation on grants to help local online entrepreneurs and a compelling presentation on properties by your guest speaker Ahyat Ishak were amazing! The evening went by too fast.

New Office?

Didn’t think I’d do this… I’ve just signed on and got the keys to my first and new office space in Kelana Jaya!

I’ve been working as an online solopreneur for the last 9 years. Money and freedom was good, now it’s way due time to bring on┬áthe heat!

I had been scouting for a suitable base for the last 3 days. The units at Kelana Square weren’t suitable and I didn’t feel good about them. Then I checked out Plaza Kelana Taragon and after viewing a few more units, I locked in on one of them with the best view from the tower.

The office space is vacant and unfurnished, however I’m moving in the essentials within the next 1 to┬á3 weeks to get the show on the road first. That is my main priority.

Right now I’m feeling both excited and anxious.

Excited because there’s HELLUVA lots of opportunities in Internet Marketing just waiting to be seized, and I know I cannot do this alone.

Anxious because this is my first time ever. In fact, for a very long time I resented having a ‘formal’ office.

Fortunately unlike just a few short years ago, today I’ve got mentors to turn to for advice and there’s an abundance of connections I’ve made in the past months to pull me through the initial stages.

So where will this new venture lead to? Time will tell.

IM Rooftop Gathering

Lots of brain fusion and exchange of grand ideas throughout the evening, coupled with good food in great company!

Thanks Alvin Huang for organizing the second IM Rooftop Gathering at your superbly luxurious house! Truly worth the one-night trip to Singapore.

And oh yeah, thanks Lester Lim for spotting me SGD50 since I didn’t come across any ATMs lol

 

Tribe Engage 2.0 Party

Post-AFEST gathering and party right here in Malaysia! Because 5 days in Phuket wasn’t enough. ­čÖé Amazing time catching up with the people again whom I thought would’ve already gone back to their countries but gave us a nice surprise by swinging by KL!

Also thanks Shannon Toh and King Qn for opening their Salty Customs office to host the party!
