THE TIGER FACTORY film shoot day 3

It's been a busy week. No time to upload photos, nor this blog. But now that the first leg of the THE TIGER FACTORY shoot is done (it ended on the 10th of March and will resume without me during the end of the month) and I've also completed the shooting of my newest short film (I'm still consistently pumping a short film out every two months) last night, there's some free time.

5th of March. We moved to a pig farm for the film shoot.

Shooting a challenging scene in the pig farm


It's a really tough place. The nauseating smell, the noises, the sight of pigs defecating upon each other, a weaker person wouldn't have stomached the sights that I had seen. But then, enduring these is a small price to pay for art.

Our main actress Fooi Mun managed to learn how to bathe the pigs. She ended up doing that a lot.

The pig farm's managed by a Burmese community. It wasn't hard for our cast and crew to blend in with them.
