Kampung Baru… a village in the heart of the city of Kuala Lumpur. Has it lost it’s village essence?

Short synopsis:
Kampung Baru is a traditional Malay village situated in the heart of the Malaysian capital of Kuala Lumpur. Traditional Malay houses are surrounded by huge concrete and steel skyscrapers that provide a juxtaposition of modern urbanisation and customs and tradition. Zan talks to several individuals who have close ties with Kampung Baru to try and capture the essence of the village.

Fellow Fatbidinians! It’s been a hectic week! My eyes are bulging out of their sockets! But good news! I’ve recently been contracted as a video journalist for a Dutch news agency called VJ Movement. What’s cool about this organisation is that they focus on solo-video journalism! My kinda style!

My latest column in The Malaysian Insider… solo-journalism baby!

Below is an excerpt of my latest column in The Malaysian Insider. I’ve been practicing and advocating it for years! So listen to me people!

Let’s all go solo-journalism!

DEC 1 — I first heard or read about solo-journalism about four years ago. It was the buzz word at that time, especially in the television news industry in the United Kingdom.

Some of the first few practitioners included Sean Langan, Sean McAllister, David Dunkley Gyimah and Kevin Sites. Their work would air on the BBC, Channel Four and even at film festivals. Some were even nominated for BAFTAs and Emmies.

I was so enthralled I gave it a try. Now almost all of my documentaries and news are in the solo-journalism style. [Click to read the full article]
