I’ve been spending too much time editing the video blogs and no time on the actual film. Damn!
‘The Look-East Project’ is now in the editing stage. Not much progress yet! But I hope it gets done by end of January. Need to find some motivation (read: need to hire me an editor!).
I just realised that I never really explained what ‘The Look-East Project’ really is. If you still can’t figure it out after watching all the video blogs, then I guess you need help.
Ok… so I (attempted to) flirt! What do you expect? I was on a road trip by myself… and these are young girls who think its cool for a guy to have a big-ass video camera! But as you can see, they seem more excited holding on to a 20-foot python!
I went on a road trip to Terengganu all by myself to shoot ‘The Look-East Project’. The drive wasn’t too bad. Six hours with frequent stops to the loo and also for short naps. And… I don’t care what people say… the Karak Highway is not haunted! C’mon!

‘The Look-East Project’ got some press coverage during the shoot in Terengganu. Funny thing is, Kosmo claims that I found out about the snake-wrangler girls from an article that appeared in their publication. The truth is that I read it in The Star! Haha! I didn’t even know Kosmo ran a similar article! And, they even misspelled my name! (Click here to read article)
I just got back from Terengganu and as soon as I go through the footages I shot… be prepared for more video blogs on the progression of the film!
