Lav Diaz's 6-hour film, CENTURY OF BIRTHING (2011)

Lav Diaz

For the past few years, I have always wanted to catch a film by the Filipino director Lav Diaz. Most of his films are longer than four hours (his longest being close to 10 hours), yet he is prolific to make at least a film a year. How is that even possible???

Finished the principal photography on Woo Ming Jin's SECOND LIFE OF THIEVES

After 14 gruelling days, we're finally done with Ming Jin's SECOND LIFE OF THIEVES shoot. For me, the strange about film shoots is that they always seem longer than they really are. It's not because they are miserable so time seems to flow very slowly, it's just that so many things happen in one day that when everything is over, you realize you've gone through a range of emotions that you usually would go through in a longer span of time.

More misadventures on the set of Woo Ming Jin's new film SECOND LIFE OF THIEVES

Here's a photo by our Art Director Gabby, which showed actress Emily practising her slapping moves on Ming Jin and I. Epic. That was the 7th of November.

Woo Ming Jin's SECOND LIFE OF THIEVES begins principal photography

SECOND LIFE OF THIEVES is Woo Ming Jin's latest feature film that I'm producing, co-writing and (probably) editing. We have been shooting the film since Nov 4.

This marks Ming Jin's first independently-financed project since 2010's THE TIGER FACTORY (between this period of time, he also did commercial fares like the found-footage horror SERU, this year's hit zombie film KL ZOMBI and the upcoming MAMAK CUPCAKE)

An epic film that spans more than 30 years, SECOND LIFE OF THIEVES is about a village head trying to investigate a series of mysterious deaths in his village while dealing with his catatonic daughter, and remnants of feelings from a passionate affair during his youth.
