Hey whoever reads my blog, sorry for the late ‘real’ updates. I was pretty much busy for the past three weeks, with assignments and presentation rolling over one after another.I guess i just finish up my assignments and summarize the whole story later hehe.
Well first was the Oral presentation, which i pretty much crap about my exchange experience. Surprisingly, one of my classmate, a first year made his presentation along with a pilotresarch survey on the Fashion sense of USM student. Darn an APEX,ok!!
So,after all that is done, i was working on my essay for my TV Production which by the time dateline is due to be submitted, the lecturer decided to postpone till 1st September which i plan to finish half of my essay by the last few days till submission date. Oh well, i’ll just put that on hold until im done with my shooting for my TV Production.
Finally the pressure is on, sacrificing the last 4 days of my remaining semester break. We went off for some shooting nearby USM and Bazaar Ramadhan for our ‘Rencana’ & News report segment which we have to do for the other group we are collaborating.
* i almost step on this baby python on the way back to my hostel..fobia till now..!! The funny part is that the guard was also afraid to remove the snake and ask me to step on it..???? crazy!!!
Confused? Like this….
Two group of Five each will pair up to make a TV programme, Group A – us…will have to make the content…rencana & news to fill the slot of Group B’s TV program while Group B will have to prepare the LIVE show for our studio recording. Just imagine as if Group A is the production house who makes all the movies/drama/tv program while Group B is the TV station who does all the talk show at their studio, so they will have to set up all the camera’s and all which they will later tell us the flow of the programme while the Group A member will be the cameraman as the supporting technical member hehe. Comprende? Muy Bien! 😛
After 3 days of shooting and 3 days of editing, we finally finish our video. With some major post-production syndrome where we practically annoyed by our own acting because we had to listen to our voice and all the songs in the video for like a million times already. Both the Directors/Scriptwriter – me and Hajar could not even look at it anymore LOL!
Thank God Komala & Gary is the editor, i don’t think i can see myself in the mirror anymore by the end of the day!
Things was pretty much challenging, one,when we did our Rencana, we could not shoot at Kopitiam which we plan to shoot, i dont know what the Nepal waiter say to the boss because i can’t understand a word what he says. So, we changed to MaryBrown, which luckyly we get the permission without having the permission letter at that time hehe we shoot the day before ramadhan starts so we had a lot energy that time compared to the Bazaar Ramadhan, esp the fact that we are surrounded by food.
Whats worse is that it even rained heavily when we started shooting so by hook or by crook we had to shoot it since that we are due to return the camera by the next day so there’s no way we can get it done by tmr. So “Be it rain or shine” ( taken from our script, see how bad it was to listen to the same script over and over again in our editing???) we had to shoot whatever available….better get something than nothing,right?
Turn out it was quite a good take, because it reflected that ppl still comes to the bazaar no matter if it rains or not, and we got this 1 minute of moving clouds changing from grey to sunshine which perfectly matched our script hehe it was my script actually, but everyone was doing an awesome job and played their part regardless of the rain and all. Thanks girls ( & guy lol..!!!!)
* Gary was locked inside the school, its only after En. Zain came and dial the password he finally gets out lol. Took a nice picture of a ‘Prison Break’ behind the bars haha
Now that is over, i had to present for my minor subject , Political Science, damn freaked out by everyone as i ask question by the end of the presentation. No wonder ppl always ask me not to ask Q on their presentation LOL! How am i suppose to know if you understand what i said if i don’t ask question..???? 😛
Now that all is done, i be finishing up the rest of my essays starting from the postponed TV production, then both TV Studies for the next 2 weeks. And then, prepare for my exam and im FREE…!!!!!!
Hurm, seriously thinking of being a lecturer which ive been running away from so that i can go on sabbatical to go for BACKPACKING one day!! Plus, you get sponsored to travel for any academic related visits/conference and all for FREEE…!!!!! Hoho
To be or not to be…that is the question 😉
Here’s some pictures of the shooting we did, enjoy~~~
