Well done, students of AC-4308

Chris Woo, the lecturer behind the module (of UBD) AC-4308 Professional Communication and Event Design, was super impressed with the students involved in this module. The task was given back in January 2014 and they were only given a timeline of 3 months to come up with an event independently on their own. It was decided that the students chose to do a film festival and Chris Woo was just overwhelmed yesterday to see how the students pulled off such a great event.

During the interview, Chris gave some encouragement to the students, “We will make history if you can guys can do it as this is the first film festival in Brunei Darussalam. Of course, the students didn’t know what they got themselves into and now I just so proud of them. Everything they did themselves. I did push along and made a path for them but everything else was from them – finding sponsors, learn how to do lights, try to do 3D design and sketches for the event and they did it on their own.”

He said that this was part of an assessment for their module and it will account to 10% of the event itself. The rest of the marks will be based on peer and team assessment and there are no exams for this module.

Chris hopes that this event can be spur off to new things and even being endorsed by Universiti Brunei Darussalam as an annual event due to its success and also a good avenue to expose our local creative industries.

It was good to see Brunei’s international star, Wu Chun, who was appointed ambassador for Film Festival UBD 2014. Also present during the event was Origins Films, promoting their upcoming movie Yasmine and they will be having behind-the-scene showcase later today (Sunday) at 2:30pm. Another one is Creative Academy of the Narrative and Dramatic Arts and Sciences (CANDAS), an avenue for creative people.

Today is the final day of the event and there will be 5 show times and admission is FREE. I watched with Del Goh yesterday and we were impressed that the short films were done locally and there are still more room for improvements. The event — sponsored by Baiduri Bank, GHK Motors Sdn Bhd, CANDAS, Borneo Bulletin and Yayasan Sultan Haji Hassanal Bolkiah (YSHHB).
