(lazy) Update

managed to crack up this lazy brain of mine to compose a few updates. bad nerve coordination I believe, even my fingers were reluctant to agree to what the brain commanded them to do. (lame excuse!)

Last two week's been a hectic week (well... not really) - Children coming into rehearsals in a messy studio-cum-clubhouse of ours (Bingkas Kebayan's), Angkatan Karyawan Aktif Kuala Lumpur (ANGKA)'s theatre fragment video shoot, plus me attending a half-day crash course of Final Cut Pro video editing at manggis (kudos to sifu Abang Pojie @ Fauzee Nasir, Kak Yan's hubby).

Bingkas Kebayan's rehearsals for its 1st musical, Mahkota Buana
The rehearsals have already begun since we've finished the MPAJ's Maulud project last March. At the moment the kids are... well, rehearsing. A few of them have gone into recording music guides for the musical at Quantize Studio, Pandan Indah.

Definitely, after each production, the production team "suffers" post-production phase - returning lent costumes and props, reviewing the overall expenses and performance, and YES... cleaning up the studio-cum-clubhouse. The clubhouse will definitely be in total messed up condition. But that's the beauty of a production. (eh?!)

ANGKA's Fragmen Teater II
Managed to video shoot their lil' theatre fragments performances. Put up together 4 different stories and you'll get Fragmen Teater. This time they welcomed AROMA Theatreworks staging Mangli (director Apai), apart from the other 3 fragments: Posto II (Azman Hassan aka Pokme), Kemenyan Hantu (Lamin) and Darai Ghazal Party Terakhir (Esnani Elias). Good effort and cooperation put together.

Final Cut Pro 6hr Crash Course
Most probably the most unbelievable class I've ever attended to. Held at manggis's studio, coached by the diligent Abang Fauzee Nasir aka Pojie, we managed to cover most of the essentials of video editing using Final Cut Pro.

Kudos to Abang Pojie and manggis!
thanx a millions!!!

Ok, I think I've written what I wanted to say. I need to get back to my real work.
