Art Dept on China Press. ( 中國報 )




搞設計女將勇闖男界

http://www.chinapress.com.my/node/267821






Basically about 'yours truly' working in a male dominated Art Department world for films.
Talks about the experiences and conditions that we hope to improve for all crew behind the scenes.

Would like to clarify here that some of the photos were misquoted.
The Room at 1st page was the attic and the parangs you see on page 3 are not tools but props in PB2. Same goes with the cars, they were proposed action vehicles.. Not our transportation.
Also the bridge on Ice Kacang was not designed by me, but the Art Director , Mr. Too. I can't swim to save my life..hahah.. So I support the boyz from dry land.

In Art Dept, we work as a team and credit goes out to all who has contributed.

HANYUT the EPiC ....(adapted fr Almayer's Folly)


A movie that took almost 6 months to Prep and 3months to Shoot..
The biggest movie I've worked on yet.. with a movie budget of near to Rm 14million .


The Art Dept took tremendous effort & research time to find props & set design for this 1800 Epic Period movie..

With a mixed crew of local & international team, the team consist of skills from Australia, Poland, Singapore & Canada.

                                                                                                    
My role was Set Decorator, working closely with Production Designer~Sam Hobbs
& Prop master ~ Nick Wong.

All sets & villages were build from Ground Zero in the Jungles...
Indeed a HUGE effort.


Set in the Jungles of Pahang: Kuala Lipis , Kenong & Kuantan.
The Movie is adapted from the famous "Almayer's Folly" written by Joseph Conrad. 1895

Here's a Video of the Art Dept in the Making :
