Director Statement

As my previous shorts, Lukisan Hati Jasmin is pure 100% shot tru a smartphone. I'm into smartphone filmmaking and proud about it. I used Vivo X70 to shot Lukisan Hati Jasmin.

Originally Lukisan Hati Jasmin is a proposal for SCRIPT funding under FINAS Dana MIKRO PRISMA. When FINAS upgraded the proposal to SHORT FILM funding, I was like 50-50 of taking up the challenge. I'm with no filmmaking equipments. Let alone getting actors and all.

It's kinda miracle to recall back how I got myself fine 100% all Sabahan Casts & Crews.. and I'm the only one with average Filmmaking knowledge. Working with all first-timer personnel in the production means I'm guiding, teaching and at the same time learning from the experience too. We're being awesome to each other.

All I can assure, Lukisan Hati Jasmin was born with love, laughter, commitments and beautiful souls I can find nowhere else.
