Lov Actually



Trailer to a short movie made by my good friend Tan Meng Yoe, better known as TMY (though I have a tendency to call him MY). This is the trailer to the final movie he'll make in university.

Back in university, we were the go-to guys for movies and videos. My modesty says that that's probably not very accurate of our actual abilities, but my heart and everything else said that it was a lot of fun to work with him. We had the same classes, similar interests, even conducted a bloody workshop together. That was interesting :>

Throughout the years, he and I have made plenty of movies (mostly stupid, fun types, and mostly by him). We've taken to comparing ourselves to Quentin Tarantino (me) and Robert Rodriguez (him). This stems from a deal that we agreed upon, in which I'll work on his movie for RM1, and he'll work on mine for RM1 (similar to QT working on Sin City for $1 and Robert Rodriguez helping out on Kill Bill for $1).

But despite all of that, he's been far more prolific. While I have my ideas (and do get off my arse to do them sometimes), he gets off his arse all of the time. This results in a huge number of videos, during which I have killed, been killed, tried to kill, been killed again, fell in love, sat on a chair in the background, have a glass bowl smashed over my head, told lame jokes, got my marriage proposal rejected, interviewed, and objectified.

(If you're wondering: The Door, The Door again, Psycho 3, Psycho 3 again, A Quiet Delight, Captivation, Takau 1.5, Irregular Instances of Madness, The Wife-less Guitarmen, Budding Filmmakers, and I Objectify You)

And if it weren't for Shazana, I would've fallen in love again, too. Drats.

And to MY: It's been a good four years, mate. I'll miss seeing 'Superratty Films' pop up on my screens. But this is not the end, for you and I...we are one.

Here's to a better tomorrow.

Cheers.
