THE ELEPHANT AND THE SEA Showing at Cathay Cineleisure on 21/8/2008!
Heya all, after winning a couple of cool awards at important film festivals last year, THE ELEPHANT AND THE SEA, directed by Woo Ming Jin, will be screening EXCLUSIVELY at CATHAY CINELEISURE MALL on the 21st of August, 2008 (You can read about Ming Jin the Mentor's blog post about his adventures at the 25th Torino Film Festival where the film became the first Malaysia film in history to win itself a Special Jury Award at the festival! Or you can read about what I did at the Elephant and the Sea screening at the Santiago Film Festival in Chile last August)
I hopped aboard as the co-producer of the film after joining GREENLIGHT PICTURES last year, and was involved mainly in the postproduction of the project, and securing its Malaysian theatrical release (countless visits at the Censorship Board in Putrajaya)
For the Malaysian version of the THE ELEPHANT AND THE SEA, audiences will get to hear some new music pieces composed by me that weren't in the previous film festival version to accompany Ronnie Khoo's guitar track. Yes, I'm not kidding about the last part. It was the first time I've ever had a hand in composing for a film soundtrack. (So don't expect me to pull off a Dario Marianelli or John Williams!)
I also sang the all-new Enya-like ending theme song for the film called ELEPHANTS SINKING IN THE SEA. (kidding)
Anyway, the official blog of THE ELEPHANT AND THE SEA is up, so please go there and read about our awesome experience in making the film, the troubles we had with the the two steamy sex scenes that needed to be removed for the Malaysian release, interviews with cast and crew, videos etc.
(BTW: Many thanks to GUO SHAO HUA of The Storyboard for plugging the film)
