Jeppe Ronde and Woo Ming Jin's GIRL IN THE WATER (which I helped produce and edit) wins Best Short Film at Danish Oscars

Last night, I received this very unexpected and wonderful news that Jeppe Ronde and Woo Ming Jin's GIRL IN THE WATER, a 20-minute short that I helped to produce and edit, had won the BEST SHORT FILM Award at the Robert Awards (the Danish Oscars)!

So I'm one of the proud recipients of the Danish Oscars. :D

(Meanwhile, Lars Von Trier's MELANCHOLIA won 10 awards, including Best Film, Director, Screenplay, Actress and Supporting Actress)

The GIRL IN THE WATER shoot back in June 2011 was a very tiring and arduous one where we have to work under insane weather conditions and other crazy circumstances beyond our control. It was probably one of the most challenging shoots I've ever endured, I was even the boom operator! (because our audio guy pulled out just days before the shoot)

(It was stressful for me in a personal level too as I had to deal with the risk of becoming the black sheep in my family after I had to miss a cousin's wedding, a matter taken much more seriously than I can convey)

But in the end, it was a highly illuminating experience that was worth all of the blood and tears that we've shed. Many thanks to the cast and crew of GIRL IN THE WATER for making all these happen. And also to the kind folks of Sungai Ular for helping us so much during the shoot.
