TESCO MERDEKA ‘Heart of Gold’
I have not come across a more sincere & thankful lady, who does not look her age. Aunty Mildred, a kind soul, always smiling & spreading cheer to people around her. With completely no acting experience whatsoever, she portrayed her genuine self & all we had to do was capture that on camera. Compared to the other board, this required a lot of traveling time, to Penang & back in 1 day. Luckily, we only had her real home & Tesco Penang to shoot in. Working with Shootworksasia, agency Mullenlowe & Tesco, we ended up with a very honest & real film, not a typically scripted ad, & to me, that is sometimes what we need. Something that grounds us. Something that humbles our very existence. Shot with the Sony FS7 with myself as camera operator. Complete post-production was done by freelancer Hafiz.
