EastCoastLife bids farewell to talented filmmaker Yasmin Ahmad (1958 - 2009) who passed away on 25th July 2009. Yasmin was known in Singapore after directing 2 advertising campaigns for our Ministry of Community Development, Youth and Sports .
Her talent and creativity in filmmaking was an inspiration to me. I studied her movies and short films while I was learning digital film making. I'm sad that I would never have a chance to work for her.
For the second lesson of my Digital Filmmaking workshop, I learnt how to edit my footage and add music, text and voiceover to the short film. I shall not bore you with the details. It was tough for me. :(
We have to learn these within 5 hours! I was sweating profusely, fumbling with the files and trying to follow instructions.
I'm supposed to upload my short video to YouTube but my computer is not co-operating. I wonder what's wrong. I would have to wait for my son to return so he could help me. :P
It was a hectic but fun 2-week running around the island for some interesting events to shoot. :)
