Two of my shorts, LAST FRAGMENTS OF WINTER and GIRL IN THE WATER at Rotterdam International Film Festival 2012

After only a few days in Malaysia to celebrate Chinese New Year, I'm flying off again in less than 24 hours to Netherlands for the Rotterdam International Film Festival.

Both my short film LAST FRAGMENTS OF WINTER (making its European premiere) and another, GIRL IN THE WATER by Danish director Jeppe Ronde and my regular collaborator Woo Ming Jin ("THE TIGER FACTORY", "WOMAN ON FIRE LOOKS FOR WATER"), which I helped to produce and edit, will part of the WAITING FOR SNOW IN MY KAMPONG program.

Aside from the aforementioned two shorts, SURVIVAL GUIDE FOR RADIOACTIVE VILLAGE (Survival Guide Untuk Kampong Radioaktif Project), a collection of four short films by Malaysian masters like Liew Seng Tat ("FLOWER IN THE POCKET"), Tan Chui Mui ("LOVE CONQUERS ALL", "YEAR WITHOUT SUMMER"), Woo Ming Jin again and Yeo Joon Han ("SELL OUT!") is also part of WAITING FOR SNOW IN MY KAMPONG.

The four short films are available for viewing on Youtube, you can check it out if you haven't already.

This is Ming Jin's LOVE DISH (Masakan Cinta).

This is LAI KWAN'S LOVE by Tan Chui Mui.

This is ORANG MINYAK XX by Yeo Joon Han.


Will be curious to see all these films, along with GIRL IN THE WATER, on the big screen for the very first time.

You can read about my LAST FRAGMENTS OF WINTER shoot. I shot the film at the famed snowy village of Shirakawa-go, and then I returned to Malaysia to finish the rest of the film. Also went through a gruelling sound-mixing session with some industry legends.

Or you can read about the GIRL IN THE WATER shoot here and here. Along with my editing experiences too.
