How I Made My First Movie
In How I Made My First Movie, actor, screenwriter and director Gavin Yap takes us along his journey in making his very first feature film, Take Me to Dinner. In it, he chronicles the genesis of his project and explains in detail how he planned to make it happen without much of a budget.
The subtitle of this book – Or, A Decade of Favours –says it all. Yap pulled strings everywhere he could and got a crew of talented actors and technicians to work for him, practically for nothing. He also found all kinds of ingenious ways to shoot on location for free.
Part memoir, part production log, part how-to guide, this book is a must for every aspiring filmmaker in Malaysia. You might or might not be able to pull off what he did, but you will most certainly be inspired by it.
