Britzone English Club is a community based organization based in Jakarta for those who want to enhance their english speaking skills. They do a lot of casual discussion, workshop, and talks with english as the main delivery language. That chill Saturday, in early week of January this year, I was invited to participate as the speaker of one of their Britzone Funday session. I brought a session of Visual Story Telling through Motion Picture and I would say it was one of my favorite talks and it really opened my year strong. I always love sharing stuffs in a general crowd, they who have no exposure at all with filmmaking or cinematography, the clean slate. One of my favorite questions from the participants that day was if I ever experience failure in choosing my future path before I encountered the realm of cinematography, and the answer was absolutely yes! I did several other things beforehand like excelling programming language and thought I would be an ass kicking programmer/hacker, copywriter in ads agency, or just simply read so many political and inter-country diplomacy law only because I thought I would make a mean ambassador. But here I am now, being sweaty and nerdy with my big camera guns or throwing perverted jokes on set cause I need to charm the shoot. Haha. I love life.
Kids and their curiosities might not be a new thing, but moms and their willingness to learn what-so-called "kekinian" trend, now that has a nice ring on it. So I was invited to be a speaker/mentor for this event held by Bhinneka.com for enlightening moms in how to create a relevant video. Yep, that's how I translated the idea of "kekinian". Clear communication has to be relevant, up to date one might say. Cannot wait to have more events like this, surely it was adorable!
I was invited to be one of the speakers in this great discussion event held by Layaria alongside with other creator/cinematographers, Mr. Bambang Supriyadi, Ms. Anggi Frisca, and Miss Priscilla Citra (who interestingly was my former student at Binus International Film!), moderated by Dennis Adhiswara. It was really a chill and casual afternoon in Menara by Kibar, where we discussed the process and challenges each of us encountered in our previous projects.

Karya Raya Festival 2016
It was an early Sunday morning, 9 October 2016, that I got the news from my cousin. My uncle was taken away from us, taken too soon. Shocking. Saddening. Crushing. I straight away jumped to a flight to Medan to see him for the last time, to feel his everlasting spirit, to witness him ripping the fruit of all his good deeds and kindness. Countless people mourn, tears were shed, hearts are broken and sadness filled the place, it was so gray. Once he said on his last church service, on his recent sermon, "For God gives you heart to bless the poor, for He gives you soul to feed the hunger." He's always a compassionate man, my Paktua, and may he not be among us but I know that his thought, his spirit, and his righteousness will always be remembered.
