News: Indie movie S'kali opens on Sept 14
Aug 17 2006: It’s ‘all systems go’ for local indie movie S’kali at the Cathay Cineleisure in Damansara Mutiara, Petaling Jaya, on Sept 14.
The movie, produced by Perantauan Enterprise on HDV (high definition video) format, had its ‘test screening’ at Cathay Cineleisure last Monday -- and its writer-director, Arivind Abraham, said he is ‘totally happy’ with the test.
“We were testing for colour balance and sound reproduction and these turned out all right,” he said today. Arivind said he is grateful to Cathay Cineplexes Sdn Bhd for bringing down technicians from Singapore to set up the HDV or ‘E-format’ test screening.
S’kali is the first movie to be shown on this particular format at the Cathay Cineleisure multiplex at Damansara Mutiara.
S’kali’s associate producer Bahir Yeusof said the movie is a tale of love and friendship involving a group of school friends as they branch out to pursue their further studies and career.
“This is arguably the first movie ‘made by youngsters about youngsters’ as all the cast and crew are in their 20s,” he said. “There are also some surprise cameos by some of the top names in local show business.”
The movie was shot in the Klang Valley and Port Dickson last January and was edited in Britain. “S’kali” stars Jayaram Nagaraj, Davina Goh, Angeline Rose, Derek Ong and Zimy Rozan.
