Background Models

Last night was tiring... taken to account that I haven't slept for the last 38 hours... this is just the beginning.. the 3-day streak without sleep record will soon be broken...

I finished my background models for my animation... and there was something funny (at least for me) during the whole CRIT session. Long story short, I've waited for almost 3 hours until Ms Nadia called out my name to present my work. In less than 3 minutes, my presentation was finished! ironic isn't it... waiting 3 hours to do a 3 minutes presentation...

a 3 minutes presentation is in fact a good presentation. You know why? It's because it shows that your work is clear and the lecturers get your idea... and as for me, Mr Jijoe said that basically he gets what my idea is... but the set seems a bit lifeless... he wanted me to add some more stuff to make it more lively... I knew he was gonna criticize about it.. it just never slipped my mind when I was busy modelling... only when I finished rendered I realized about it.. by that time.. the sun already rises to alarm us FA students that we needed to freshen up for CRIT... hehe

Praise to god for helping me through.... and not to mention my trusty roomate, Mawi who stayed up until 5 in the morning to keep me company.. we didn't talk much though.. *giggles* without further ado..

-Some of the models are modelled using 3Ds Max... but most of it are done in Maya
-The lighting and rendering are also done in Maya using mental ray... I know I haven't mastered the lighting and rendering... not to mention I spend like 2 whole hours just working on the lighting -____- (noob)

~it's a work in progress~

I did this like 2 weeks ago or so... after 1 hour and half... I decided to let it be just like this... hihi.. like I always say... it's a work in progress....

Rock Out or Miss Out

Man how I wish I could go back to that moment... everything seems blurry nowadays... don't get me wrong.. I was blurry that time too.. but it was a good blur I guess.. you don't care what people thought about you, or said about you... you just wanna be yourself and let the whole digest you one part at a time.. cuz if you know me, I don't like to pretend I'm somebody else... if not, the world is missing who you really are, and you're missing what's the world has to offer you...

god, it's just one of those pointless post... hehee... I feel so lazy to continue my work.. being the sentimental guy that I am.. I browse some pictures I smile upon looking at this one... it was during the CMC ice breaking night session, I was soooo full of myself playing that air guitar... gud times... gud times...

If you guys follow me on twitter, there's this one time that I always mentioned that I wanna write a new poem.. well.. this is it... now I only wish I can turn this into a very meaningful song... well that is another story... enjoy!

My BitterSweet

Day by day goes by,
I still can remember how we 'ignited'
English class, I thought I was gonna die
But you took me in, feeling so gifted.

At first every guy was jealous of me,
I was clueless, what did I miss, what didn't I see
You make ponder, You make me guess
Lord helped me figured out this dreadful mess.

It was your radiant beauty
It was your intelligence
How I felt so full of guilty
How I felt so full of negligence.

The very first time I took noticed
Your hair was short and  seemingly at eased
Submitted your assignment and you looked pleased
For you have done your best from the rest, from the least.

Like a lightning, like a heartbeat
It was that fast we started to converse
Butterflies in my tummy to my feet
You are the gift you are the curse.

Facebook applications, mail inbox notifications
That's how we express our opinions
Being classy and cool are the perfect notions
But full of layers, like a basket of onions.

Kamil is Kamil, that's what you said
I wasn't sad, I felt great
Sure we have our ups and downs
But around you, I can't help but to kill the frowns.

I like the fact that you are my friend
Nothing more nothing less
Hope that you will find someone that makes you feel grand
Don't worry about the past, it's all a test.

No one can take the place of you
I hope that I will have a place in your heart too
Call me stupid call me full of wit
For you are my one and only BITTERSWEET.

Review : Lu Pikirlah Sendiri de Movie

I'm mad... no! I'm way more than mad... I'm furious as hell right now.. why? it's because of the new movie Lu Pikirlah Sendiri de Movie. There's so many things I wanna talk about but I'll try not to bore you guys to hell just like what I endured when watching this 'oh-so-shamed-that-I-hate-to-say-the-title' movie.

Ok, just a quick brief synopsis just to make you guys clear of what I'm gonna bash out later.

"Nabil (Nabil Raja Lawak 2), an SPM qualifier, is a hard working delivery boy. During the weekends, he works at a motorcycle workshop by day and sells 'kuay teow' at night to help his friend. Natasha (Puteri Sarah Liyana) is a daughter of a multi-millionaire, pursuing her tertiary education at a local University. By common stereotype, it is impossible for these two people to fall in love. However, it seems that fate has its own plans."

What really caughy my attention is the movie posters. To me, it's decent, simple and sweet and not like many malaysian movie posters where they deliberately stamp all the actors/actresses that is in movie into that not so big space plus the boring typography even my sister can design even better. wait a sec, let's focus here...

Aminah Rhapor is the woman to blame for my furiosity. I know this is here debut directing a film but god! This has to be the worse movie I've seen during my 20 years of my life. Heck, she made Razak Moheideen's movie seem way better and I don't really like his movie. So you guys kinda get the picture of why her movie sucks.

First and foremost, what the hell is up with the storyline. If you ask me, there's no storyline at all. the term storyline means that there is a 'line' that the story goes from point A to point D for example. Along the way, there's B which is the build up and C which is the climax. What Aminah Rhapor did was very unclear from the start. Jumping from B to A then goes back D but there is never a C. Yup, I didn't found any climax there.

Besides that, Aminah Rhapor fails as a director obviously. I said that because the actors/actresses fail to bring their character to life. I know that they're not all great actors/actresses, but there where good directors come in. They DIRECT them to do what their supposed to do. During the whole movie, I can see Sarah Liyana fails to execute an angry guise and constantly has a 'this-is-so-funny-but-I-can't-laugh' facial expression. I mean come on man, how unprofessional can you be. This shows that Aminah Rhapor doesn't do enough shots (good ones at least) to even call it a great take. Aminah Rhapor, you're a lazy director who doesn't even know what you want from your actors/actresses. In addition, some scenes are just not interelated to the last or the next shot or simply illogical to begin with. Furthermore, the movie tries to tell every character's story until the audience got mislead.

I hate to say this but the script is not good at all. It doesn't seem natural and I noticed that when 2 characters are talking, one will always wait until the other finished talking and after about 2-3 second, then he/she start talking. Once again, bad acting and seriously bad directing. Don't they rehearse first before shooting to see how the flow of the conversation works out or not? I also hate the many scenes of Nabil arguing with Puteri Sarah. They keep repeating the same ol' lines over and over again.

Next what I wanna talk about is Meet Uncle Hussein (MUH). Yep that indie band. They're in the movie too playing and singing their song in numerous scene just to add up the comedy... I guess... when I look back, it seems that the movie promotes MUH more rather that to present the main idea of the movie which is the story of Nabil's life. No offense to MUH though..

Last but not least, the cameos. Urrrgghh~ too many cameos.. to me, some of the cameos gave no input to the movie at all. I guess Aminah Rhapor want some hype so that when people see names like Vanida Imran, Amy Search, Fahrin, Zizan Raja Lawak and many more.. people might go and watch it at the cinema. These are all cheap gimmick and I feel sorry for Vanida Imran and Ummi of Nur Kasih who are 2 very talented actresses but been given the roles of mediocres who contributed very little. Nabil is a very funny guys but the movie fails to bring his charm on the screen which is a great lost. Going back to the movie poster, Nabil and Mila af5 are suppose to be the main characters in the movie. Newsflash! Mila was in the movie for about 2-3 scenes only thus making the movie poster very misleading.

To wrap up, I'd say this has to be the worse movie ever in my life. I say this because I know, even student like me and and my classmates can make a better movie than Aminah Rhapor. I don't know what's going on in Aminah Rhapor's head when she saw the result of her direction.. What happenned to the art director? There's no art at all in the cinematography.. I would really like to know what Afdlin Shauki's thoughts about this film...

some of my materials were from

Well, I know I'm harsh and most of you guys might say "does he know what he's talking about" or "you only know how to critisize people's work." Well, what I say are based on the knowledge I learned in film studies and screenwriting classes that I took..

I'm not alone in this matter, I went to see that movie with my trusted friends, Haziq and Remy and the 3 of us are on the same page... can't go wrong there... so enjoy the movie, don't enjoy the movie.. up 2 u.. I know I hated it.. that's it for me now... have a great midterm break MMU people~

Curious Displays by Julia Yu Tsao

Curious Displays from Julia Tsao on Vimeo.

This is sooooooo cool!

"Curious Displays functions simultaneously as a form of design research and as a proposal for a new product, a future display technology.

The project explores our relationship with devices and technology by examining the multi-dimensionality of communication and the complexity of social behavior and interaction. In its essence, the project functions as a piece of design fiction, considering the fluctuating nature of our present engagement with media technology and providing futurist imaginings of other ways of being.

Curious Displays is a product proposal for a new platform for display technology. Instead of a fixed form factor screen, the display surface is instead broken up into hundreds of ½ inch display blocks. Each block operates independently as a self-contained unit, and has full mobility, allowing movement across any physical surface. The blocks operate independently of one another, but are aware of the position and role relative to the rest of the system. With this awareness, the blocks are able to coordinate with the other blocks to reconfigure their positioning to form larger display surfaces and forms depending on purpose and function. In this way, the blocks become a physical embodiment of digital media, and act as a vehicle for the physical manifestation of what typically exists only in the virtual space of the screen."
