As you may or may have not noticed, the website has undergone some major facelift especially within the portfolio pages which is now divided into 3 major sections namely: Corporate, Weddings and Miscellaneous.
For 2014, we will be accepting more wedding clients than before so slots are opened all year long. You can check out our wedding packages here or just contact me here. I will also be venturing more into pre-wedding videos and wedding video presentations (stuff people show during receptions). Here's an example of a recent pre-wedding video project I took part in:
This was directed, written and produced by Wan Bazlaa Karim who came up with the idea and concept for this pre-wedding video. So if you have the vision, then we have the means to turn that into a reality.

It has been a while since I last updated. Things have been a little busy here and there and I have finally gotten around to tweaking my website a little. I've managed to upload some of my latest works in my portfolio page. My favorite one is a collaborative effort between 4 videographers during this years national day. I had the pleasure to once again work with Reza, Ajek and Adi which resulted in the production of this beautiful piece:
And heres a lovely picture of us =) until next time guys!
Sorry I haven't been updating this blog for a while. The last couple of months have been hectic in my part but equally as entertaining non the less. So what have I been up to? Well, besides work I, managed to get an upgrade of a camera. The good folks at LSV Singapore gave us a sweet deal.
Coming from a DSLR background, the FS 100 maybe a little intimidating at first but personally It didn't take that long to get use to. So I would say that as long as you have basic camera knowledge (shutter speed, ISO, FPS etc.) then mastering the camera wont the that difficult.
The image coming out of this camera is very impressive. It's sharp, it's clean and it's truly detailed. Here's a short sample I took of my cat getting ready to sleep:
Ergonomically, the camera may seem a little awkward at first, I mean it's just a box. But the beauty of it is that you can rig this bad boy up into whatever the job calls for be it a weapon of cinematography or an ENG cam.
The LCD screen itself is quite good too but like others who has or have played around with the FS 100, can't help feeling that having the the screen at the side would have been a better choice rather than having it at the top. However, that can be solved with an external monitor and a friction arm like this one:
I can talk about this camera all day, but i'll stop here for now. The FS 100 might not be for everybody but overall I am really enjoying this camera and the image it produces and I don't even mind the awkward ergonomics of the camera and the lack of ND filters. So if you get the chance, give it a try maybe you'll like it as much as I do.
TAIB's Arabian tent theme
So today's event was a whopper. This one was held at the International Convention Center (ICC) to celebrate this year's Hari Raya. Organized by Yayasan Sultan Haji Hassanal Bolkiah, the event had organizations and companies simulating 'open houses' complete with food and drinks!
In terms of video equipment, all i needed was a tripod and my trusty shoulder rig so I can take those shots in tight spaces and to move around with ease. Being mobile can be beneficial in such situations like this.
Lesson for the day: photographers can get really aggressive. so it's everyman for himself.
Rody doing his thing.
So I just got back from filming with Muzikaliti. This time around it's with Rody formerly of Embrace for Rossanne, a local metalcore band. Rody is currently in the process of recording his debut album and I must say it's coming along nicely.
Basically, I'm just shooting cutaways for his upcoming interview with Muzikaliti.
Probably a little bright for their liking
As the recording studio was dark, I used a simple LED video light on a tripod to properly expose my shots and I'm quite happy with the results I'm getting. Definitely beats out having to crank up the ISO to 1600.
Rody will have other musicians to guest star in his upcoming debut. Such as Chief from Eda Brig and Sai from Claws/Uroboros.
So overall, this will be an interesting interview to produce and I really can't wait to get my hands on this album. Oh, and I also learned that I should really make sure my lighting is secured tightly.
This awesome thing right here:
That's the Sony FS700, a super 35 camcorder! it's got the ability to produce DSLR like video quality but with a camcorder body. It's a hybrid camera! =0
Just check out this video review by one of my favourite filmmakers Philip Bloom :
Bottom line, It's fantastic!
This video was edited and compiled by a good friend of mine, Reza Mustappa.
Basically taken from the point of views of 4 different cameras! This included the Panasonic Af 100 (op. Reza), HVX 200 (op. Ajek Morsidi of Digital Visual Entertainment), Canon 600D (op. myself), and GoPro HD HERO2 (op. Aqim Yahya).
I think we can all agree that he's one gifted editor/videographer =).
Oh did I mention that he directed my band's MV? =p
You can check out Reza's other awesome vids at his youtube channel.
