Doraemon's Eyes

Sunday, April 17, 2011


So the days past, weeks past and months past. I'm now in the pre-production stage of my film.

It's an exciting period and quite relaxing actually. One of the reason is because I shoot a film in my own house, hence all the props and settings are already available prior to shooting. So we just need some arrangements and decorations and it's done! Amazing!

One of my favourite film directors of all time, Robert Rodriguez, mentioned that "to shoot a low budget film, you've to shoot with what you have". I think I'm following what he said here. I am shooting a film with what I have. So it saves a lot of money (thank you Mr Rodriguez!).

One of the things that made me upset was The Hollywood Reporter (THR) editorial staffs. You see, I want to get my film to the film production charts in their newspaper article. But in order for my film to get in the charts, it needs to have a famous actor, director or screenwriter attached to the film. Or, I need to be backed by a well known production company.. So I was like.... Awwwww... I was so upset by that news.

In any case, I don't have all those.. So it's just sad to be a first time filmmaker, trying to break into Hollywood, because all they care are Marketable names, not quality films.

And by the way, if anyone thinks that Hollywood is about filmmaking, you're definitely fooled by Hollywood. Because I think in my opinion, Hollywood is about film advertising and marketing. Its all about the money.. Not an inch of an art form. That's why filmmaking is called show business, or Show Biz.

Get it? hahahaha

That was a lesson from Dov Simens by the way. An amazing Hollywood guru.

Anyway, it's now 12:06 am on the 18th of April 2011.

God bless everyone in this planet. Amen..

American Male Actors

I just realised this.

It's a pretty daunting task to find American male actors in Singapore. Either they are not interested in acting, or they can't act, or they have other work to do here.

In anycase, my film needs two american actors. And so far I've only found two of them who's gonna audition for the part. Thus these actors need to be freakishly awesome. Good is not good enough.

I'm a bit panicking somehow.

Can someone help me find american male actors is Singapore?

It's February!

Can anyone believe this? We are already in February... Wow..

Who here knows what's the speed of time? We all know the speed of light, the speed of sound, speed of vehicles.. etc.. But who here knows the speed of time?

It's amazing isn't it? No one knows the answer to that question..

Anyway, I already formed a company. It's called Frontman Production. A bold and cocky small production company. It's now doing it's first project. And I'm in charge of it.. hahaha... (I'm the boss).

So I will submit this film to Telluride Film Festival in Colorado USA. Part of the reason is because my favourite director of all time, Danny Boyle, always attend that film festival. So I wouldn't wanna miss it for the world to see him. Yay!

The submission deadline is not revealed yet. But the festival will run from 2-5 September. So that means, the submission date line will end two months before the 2nd of Sep...

It's a bit nerve wrecking really.. What if I don't get the right actors and actresses? What if I can't complete it in time? What if my film is rejected at the festival?

Man.. These questions lingers in my head almost all the time. There must be a way to kick these stupid questions out of mind.

But I'm really thankful. God is good. And He's really good. He gave me a dream, and now I'm pursuing it. What if my dream comes true? Hahahaha.. This is actually a scarier question..


Goodnight then. :)

Somewhere in my memory...

I always cry when I hear this song by the great John Williams.
A wonderful masterpiece.
