Today was the final paper that I've sat for college, pengajian Malaysia, or also known as Malaysian Studies. The last time I felt really nervous before a paper was Marketing Management for my 2nd semester last year. I just hope I'm able to pass this, which means this is the first time in my life that I went through a school year without failing any sub =D

Nevertheless I do have my packaging design final assessment to do and next year January 5th, the class and I would have to present it at the college's gallery to my lecturer and a few invited guest. I'm excited for this last project before internship, but also well, a lil bit sad that its been almost one year gone. And it was like just 12 months ago I started my 3rd semester by grouping with the April intakes.

Starting out I didn't really talk to them at all, but give it after a semester (yes, it took me one whole semester before actually befriending some of them), we're close enough to call each other silly names.

For this final semester of projects before internship and exhibition, I had the honor to be able to work with them for my digital video & audio final. Jessica, Jeremy, Yung Tyng, Balqis. It was one hectic month of preshoot, filming and editing before we could finally render it into a 10 minute video. Our video project has this mix of sci-fi, action with a dose of drama theme. So imagine time-travelling, a car chase, shoot outs and what not.

Yes the lecturer actually gave us a 7 minute limit, but one whole night of compressing and cutting out any unnecessary scenes, we were down to 10 minutes. We tried convincing the lecturers that since our group got 7 members and it is only fair enough that each have a minute plus to direct, but they were quite strict about the rules and to them its unfair for other groups to only have 6 minutes of less while we have 10 minutes.

Well, no one asked you to give 7 minutes, we would have been really happy if you have gave us 10 minutes. So here's the final cut, and hopefully Benchmark Productions would release a director's extended cut, with minutes worth of extra footage that had been deleted off.
