Smiles of Unity Short Film Screening

It’s actually a screen of the finalist for the short film contest organized by Yayasan Perpaduan Sarawak (Sarawak Unity Foundation), an NGO promoting unity.

Since it’s free and I’m a kiamsiap (cheapskate) cat XD, I went for the screening to check out the works of our youngster in Sarawak. The screening was held at the Swinburne University.

It was my first time step in this university XD.  Kinda like my ex university. ^^”

Anyway, I met the person in charge there and somehow I ended up with a media release.

and also a seat. This is awkward. O_O  I guess probably because I went it for SarawakBloggers.com and they have a news portal.

There were quite a lot of attendees. Some of them are the actors and actress from the short films since all 3 finalists are from Kuching. And this is the night, the audience will decide which deserve the first , second and third place.

The first video was..  

Hmm.. something like that. XD

Actually, there’s more to that but I guess let’s just wait for them to upload the video. :)

 As for the second video…

something like bollywood. Hahaha.. seriously it really did looks like one. Lots of dancing and singing. It’s more to a documentary on the different culture and festive events with some funny scenes in between. Very entertaining. I can see a lot of people laughing to it.

As for the last one, it…

Seriously!!

It started with a boy doing a boy thing, walking around the paddy film, doing nothing until he found a kitten trapped in a pipe.  He called out to his friends to helped to save the cat.

Sorry, I’m bad in describing but I actually planned to show you guys the video but MC said …

but still I went…

I feel like a pirate secretly taking shots in cinema for pirated DVDs. XD

Anyway, here’s some screenshots.

 First video: Rojak

The boy who always got bullied with his sick mother.

Bullied since 1990.

Gang fights!

Second Video:  School Life

Singing

Lots of singing

Even more singing.

Third video: Si Kucing.

The boy

Told you, the boy pee on the big screen. XD I bet he will goes ” OH God Why” when he grew up later.

The poor Kitty who was abused with dirt just for the sake of the video. >:\

Extra documentaries after the short film screen.

One about the Wayang Kulit culture in Indonesia.

And another about Chinese Knots.

Voting after the screening.

That basically ends the short film screening. Pretty interesting. I hope there will be more activities in future. Since it serves as a good channel to promote the unity and uniqueness of Sarawak and at the same time a channel for Sarawak youth to show and polish their talents. Do check out Yayasan Perpaduan Sarawak.

To tell you the truth, I actually joined the contest too but didn’t manage to get in the final. Must try harder next time. Since I do not have any camera that can records and also people, so me and Eggyolk made a flash animation about unity.

Now looking back. I think…

I really got carry away…

I will upload the video soon.

Then again, I feel like make a video about Kuching. hohoho.. anyone interested?

Miao at 100%Gempak Starz 2011

Warning: Heavy photos ahead. 

Anyone here read local comics?? Please raise up your paw :D

Two weeks ago, I was asked to cover for the 100% Gempak Starz (previously known as Malaysia Comic Carnival). It was a 3 days event from 26th – 28th November 2011 with lots of activities for the comic fans.

100% Creative Fever Multimedia Competition

There was an artwork display from the finalists of 100% Creative Fever Multimedia Competition where contestant need to come up with their own version of animation/application/merchandise  ideas etc based on Gempak’s comics.

Here are some of the entries.

I like this!! so cuteee! :D

Talented bunch! ^^

The Store

They were also selling all the Gempak comics and comic novels there with complete editions :D

Luckily they did as I managed to buy one to complete my Lawak Kampus (Kuso High School) collection.

I’m a big fan of this comic. Support local comic~~ XD

There’s a lot of people buying and I was given a number to wait for my turn.

While waiting for them to call my number, I walked around the area..

and got caught by this sweet promoter.

They were promoting this Chinese online game (which I forgot the name of) and telling how awesome and popular the game is etc.

I felt bad for them for wasting their energy and time in pursuing me as I don’t play Chinese language games and I already quit online gaming since the birth of Miao&WafuPafu. XD (err.. i quit a lot of stuffs for Miao&WafuPafu LOL)

Nevertheless, thanks to them for their time and to kill mine while waiting for my call. XD

Soon after that I went to redeem my comic book, I took a photo of the rest of the promoters on my way out.

X’Pose

After I took my book. I walked into this section of  awesomeness!!

A section of  special customized booth by our local comic artist!! Darn, they are so creative!!

Check out this Onsen styled booth. One of the most popular there. :D

that comes with a peeking hole. Many people was lining up just to have a peek.

Don’t ask me what I saw in there. *cover face XD*

 Autograph Session

There were a couple of autograph session and each session three comic artists will sign for the fans.

Check out the queue @@.

Hopefully, one day I also have a chance of having my own comic autograph session and there’s actually people and cats attending it. Oh wait, I need to come out with my own book before that. @@

The autograph session was long as the comic artists didn’t just sign the comics but..

draw on them!!!

GARGHH!! Y I NO bring my comics!!

While Neko, Jo and Keith was signing on the stage, the rest was interviewed at the booth.

Cosplay 

 There was also a cosplay competition held on that day. Some of the cosplayers were good!

Every time I saw people cosplaying, it reminds me of the very first cosplayer friends I had and met in Hong Kong. I miss them and Hong Kong too T_T

Opening Speech

After that, Fakhrul Anour, the editor of Gempak gave an opening speech on the event, Gempak and also local comic industry.

And ended with a group photo of the comic artists from Art Square Group.

Oh, do support our local comic artist :D They’re really good!!  Too bad I wasn’t able to have some talks and interviews with the comic artists as I was kinda short of time. I having a short meetup with the other comic bloggers later that. :D

It was a funny moment where the professionals comic artist at one side and us, the amateurs just right opposite at the KFC and some of us dreamed to be a comic artists. XD

Anyway, that ends my cover of the event. Hope I get the chance to attend the event again.

Oh before I go, have a Great Caturday night all!!!
