As Speaker in Filmmaking Workshop

I guess sharing is one of my passion. Through this blog, social media and directly talking to friends, I always share whatever that excites me. A few months ago, I was contacted by one of STID M. Natsir member to share about documentary film workshop. There is no reason to ignore this invitation. Excitedly, I accepted his offering and prepare the material for workshop.

Though, I don't think myself as professional filmmaker yet, I tried to share what I know from my previous experience in producing short movie with Sinematografi UI fellas and video clip with my mentor, Upie Guava. I wish the aim of this event was achieved. They would to have capability in filmmaking as one of "dakwah" medium. Good luck and see you in other interesting sessions :D

P.s: They gave me the certificate as appreciation and also the file folder. When I already backed, I opened the folder, there is envelope. And there is money there. I don't know what to say. I didn't expect for this thing. Beside this is my first time for filmmaking workshop and I know this seminar is free for the student, I mean there is no charge as I know. I really thank to them. It's not about the value of money, but they appreciate me for the knowledge transfer.

The 1st DIY Wedding Gift I've Ever Made

The day I know one of my best friend gonna married, I found the idea for the wedding present. Genk Jumat (Yoga, Shaka, Hendra, Dhira, Sogusa) and Me always give wedding gift together. For instance, in Shaka's wedding, we collected the money and bought some useful household utilities. For yoga's wedding, I just thought to create DIY Pop Up Photo in Frame.

I proposed the idea to the others and they were excited to the idea. I headed to their office to have short photoshoot. That was my first time making that kind of art. If I know how hard it would be, maybe I didn't propose the idea haha. Because the execution was not as easy as expectation. It needs patience so much. However, I finished the artwork since yoga is my best friend. Therefore, I need to give the personal and best wedding gift for him.

You can see the final look in picture below. Happy wedding Yoga  and Vita :D

Forum Bisnis ILUMET

Being invited in group which consists entrepreneurs of metallurgy and materials alumni is an honor for me. Someday Pak Basuki, chair of ILUMET (Ikatan Alumni Teknik Metalurgi dan Material) invited me in that group. A couple weeks ago, we had our kick of meeting in Bale Bengong, Halim. My biggest aim joining this meeting is getting knowledge and information as much as possible. As an entrepreneur, I think we need to learn much thing from other entrepreneurs. I hope as time I join this group, my capability in entrepreneurship is getting stronger. Amiiiin.

Anyway our meeting was also featured in this link.

Artist in Pameran Mall, Jakarta Biennale 2015

Creating an artwork is not as easy as you enjoy it. Absolutely. A few weeks ago, I was busy with my art exhibition titled by Pameran Mall. Actually it was art exhibition by Kelas Pagi Jakarta which displayed our point of view about Mall. All of Kelas Pagi Jakarta students should present our idea to our mentor, Anton Ismael. In fact, there are just 27 people who presented and displayed the artwork in this exhibition.

I got the idea to display about correlation between mall and our subconscious mind. Because, I think that mall is already stated in our subconscious mind. Whatever we want to do, mall is dominant option to choose.

In preparation, execution and displaying the artwork, I got many lesson learned:
1. Don't too much think, do it. Because in the middle of execution, we usually face many unexpected problems.
2. Help people, then people will help you.
3. Be patient in every single detail
4. Listen to every constructive feedback
5. Don't delay to do list. Use time wisely.

I face many problems in the art-making such as changing the display concept D-2 regarding that I didn't find place to print photo in positive film, doodling and stick the drawing on photo in the 5 a.m, sleep just for one and half hours, knowing what lighting I should use at one night before exhibition and hard to find that lighting, so that I bought the Christmas lamp as alternative after opening the exhibition, installing the cable just by myself, and many more.

After facing many problems, finally I can display my artwork.

Preparation time as a person 

I cutted the holes manually, eventually I didn't use it. Wasted effort :(

A few days before D-Day 

I want to say big thank to my KPJ friends who helped me a lot in this exhibition from brainstorming until displaying the art. There are many problems and obstacles which I can't explain one by one. Pa'e (Anton Ismael) said that "Finally you feel how hard to prepare the art exhibition. It makes you 'bleeding'". Yes, I felt it. It was hard. However, when our artwork have displayed, my body felt so released. Thank you Pa'e and Kelas Pagi Jakarta who let me being an artist in this exhibition which is part of Jakarta Biennale. If in 2011, I was the visitor for Jakarta Biennale exhibition. This year, I participated as an artist. Though Pameran Mall is Jakarta Biennale KW4, Pa'e said.

in 2013 I came as the visitors

in 2015, as the artist :D

I also would deliver special thank to Zainal, Laily, Yudha, Dera, Desi & Sandy who spent time to enjoy the exhibition. Then my friends who stated as Co-Producers who donate supporting our exhibition. Uber thanks :)
