Maria Was Disqualified By BMW Shorties 2010

I am saddened beyond words. The reason cited was I won student competitions before even though BMW Shorties 2010 is an open competition for everyone. A representative called me and told me that Maria was disqualified and they changed the rules for next year's competition so Maria is an eligible competitor, even with its new theme.

When I first heard the news, I was angry beyond words. First of all, they are very very few film festivals in Malaysia so it is extremely difficult to be exposed in Malaysia. Secondly, I have only won student competitions and never ever entered open-for-all competitions.

It is so hard to make it here in Malaysia and BMW Shorties have poured molting hot salt water on my wounds.

Whatever it is, I am going to keep making films and learn from my mistakes and BMW Shorties will play no part in my journey to make the greatest film in the world.

Go ahead, mock my self-confidence and ambition. The fire in me is radioactive today.

Yeah, it doesn't matter anymore. What's important is we learnt a whole lot with Maria. I'm planning to send Maria to several film festivals for screening and I'm currently writing new materials for new projects.

Que sera sera.
