I never really get pissed off with whatever that happens around the scene in Malaysian Indian Entertainment. For me it’s simple. Everything happens for a reason and everyone is right in their own position. So was the person whom I heard over a Whatsapp Voice Message today morning. But I have a big time disagreement with the statement and I don’t want and apologies drama after finish reading my stand.
Are we an industry in the first place to have GAME PLAYERS keeping the league going on? Who has the right to decide who is an artist and who is not? Who is a model and who is not? We are just a FUCKING SCENE.
A SELFISH SCENE WHERE WE ARE JUST CONCERNED HOW TO MAKE MONEY FOR OURSELVES AND SETTLE DOWN AS SOON AS POSSIBLE.
EVERYONE WANTS TO BE THE LEADER. TOO MANY UNPRODUCTIVE ASSOCIATIONS. NO ONE STEPS FORWARD TO SET THE SYSTEM RIGHT.
What’s wrong if someone is a roadside short film movie maker? Not to say all the feature films are doing great. They can’t even break even their investment. The movie might be good. How about the support and response? Have we thought ways to sort that out? Even if we have made efforts, is it enough?
What’s wrong with modelling? They give it a try and if they don’t make it so be it. At least they tried. if such is the concerns, what criteria have the modelling agencies set that enables an individual to be a model? Or at least have some independent body made some effort to look into it?
I can throw so many questions out and there will no answers given for many of these questions.
Don’t discourage. Your wish is also mine. But there is always a way to do it. I know as much you know about this scene and mostly it’s not nice issues. Yes, there are many with low quality products. But they are starting from the ground level. Probably with better guidance they will do better. Think how you can help them. Are you scared they will be better then you, hence you don’t give a FUCK? I know about that too. And I also know, no one can help everyone at once.
So stop acting like a leader for the scene and just focus on doing what’s right for yourself. Do the best with whatever you do. Never ever dare discourage anyone or label them. Your achievement should just be an encouragement for others, not a tool to dictate others status. This stand of mine is just a reminder in a pissed off state and nothing more than that.
*Anyone whom agrees or disagrees can privately talk to me on it.
