4444 redux

*exclusive!* (or rather i'd like to think it is...? :p) = go watch the new re-cut version of 4444, as revealed by David Liu (director) of badDesign Productions. thanks for the heads-up, dude! :)

with clearer sound design and a more effective edit (IMHO) at slightly over 8mins, tis a joy to watch :) ... but i'd rather let y'all judge it for yourself when ya go watch it ... altho there was quite a bit of pixelation, but that of coz could be googlevideo lah ... *good job* and can't wait ta see more stuff from you guys!

tokyo confidential

dammit! the trailer for Tokyo Confidential ("merit award winner" in the 2005 PDMA Digital Film Fiesta) looks so darn happenin' + intriguing = i can't wait to see the entire short! (dude, waitin' for ya! :p)

also check out the webbie for screen grabs and synposis of this slice-of-nightlife/street-culture-short, courtesy of director Anthony Koithra of headrushed.com. thanks for the heads-up, dude! :)


Watch it for a lil slice-of-tokyo docu-vignettes of the "underground" street-racing scene, complete with "race-ritual-dancing" LOL (Fast'n'Furious 3 should take a cue from alla this, innit? :p), baseball matches (ironically, an american-import, innit?) and fresh fish.

thanks for the heads-up, dude! and congrats :)
