BUDDYZ TV Spots (a TV series of 5-minute episodes I directed for Astro Ria)

The kombi van in BUDDYZ is also an important character


I mentioned about BUDDYZ last month, it's a Malay TV series of 5-minute episodes that I directed back in March starring Alif Satar, Syed Ali, Erin Malek and Elliza Razak, with special guest appearances by Shaheizy Sam (the guy pretty much appeared in almost every single episode as a different character).

Although I worked very closely with my editor and producers for the post-production (I returned to Tokyo right after the shoot, so had to do everything via email or Twitter), I haven't watched the finished work. So it was quite interesting to monitor what viewers thought of the series via Twitter. Was very flattered to see an increasing amount of tweets for the show, and that many of them had nice things to say about it. (obviously, BUDDYZ is a clear departure from the melancholic and "arthouse" films that I've always been making).

The final 16th episode is airing on TV tonight at 8:55pm (with repeats at 11pm), so I'm taking this opportunity to post all of the TV spots for the series that came out every week. Each TV spot covers two episodes of the week. Each spot is supposed to be 30 seconds, unfortunately, the slate is also uploaded on Youtube, so... the first 20 seconds are black screens with the titles, the actual video only starts playing during the 20-second mark. Other than that, I enjoyed what they did.
