2 Saturdays Ago (Day 1, Part 1)

It's surreal when I think about it, but we have already begun shooting scenes for our movie. It just happened. We initially played around with the idea of incorporating video into our Christmas play, but now we are in the midst of making a short movie.

It's funny... A year ago we were really talking about making a movie. We divided ourselves to fund-raising task force, script-writing team, project planning committee... We even had a few to write the soundtracks... but nothing happened. And now, all of a sudden, we find ourselves trying to make a story come to life.
Location: Undisclosed.

Of course, when things come in a rush, it gets messy. One thing I forgot to do is delegate all the tasks that I'm lousy at, such as administrative work (time management, resource management, clothings & props)... Resulting in me having to play different roles at a time & causing everyone a bumpy ride. Sorry. Must thank Jason & May for helping out a lot. Nothing would be achieved without the people around me. So THANK YOU.

Many people say that it's a typical storyline on Friendship. But to be honest this is a breakthrough for us, as we have always been basing our plays on the "Prodigal Son" theme, where there's always one bad dude and one good dude. This time both characters are dynamic ones. They are either good or bad. They are just people with different personalities and traits, people who are bound to fail & make mistakes, to be hurt & disappointed. I think people can relate to that.
