In Search Of My Father’s Legacy

My father, Ali Aziz, wrote several plays and books during the 50s and 60s. The three that I know of is Chuchu Dato’ Merah, Dang Anom and Hang Jebat Menderhaka.

All 3 had movie adaptations with the same name involving giants of Malaysian movie industry like Husain Hanif, M Amin and Nordin Ahmad.

Many have said that these movies were the finest of that era and arguably of Malaysian movie history. I’ve decided to embark on a journey to discover my father’s works of literature and in doing so come to know my late father a little bit better.

So in the near and maybe far future, I will be documenting this journey through my vlogs on my Youtube Channel as well as the blogs on this site.

When Your Feedback Upsets Me

Good feedback and bad feedback.
Positive feedback and negative feedback.
Constructive feedback and destructive feedback.

We choose what to do with the feedback and everything we are not happy with is either bad, negative or destructive.

In this vlog, I share why that approach is wrong and will likely rob you of the things you need to know to truly transform from a feedback.

Change Starts With Me

I want to share a true story. This happened to me nearly 10 years ago. I was conducting a workshop and one of the participants was being extremely disruptive.

I was so stressed out that I nearly lost it.

Watch the video to find out how how I handled it.

Vlog 003 – The Red Challenge

I decided to go on a walkabout and do a Red Challenge.

What’s a Red Challenge?

Its where I take pictures with the colour red as a theme. It’s more challenging than I thought it would be.

I also talk about some of the gear I use which includes the Panasonic GH2, the Sony A7 II with 24mm Samyang f2.8 lens, the Olympus Tough TG870, the Panasonic FZ300 and the Zoom H1N handy recorder.

Whew.

I also introduced a new sountrack which I intend to use for future intros and outros.

First Time Vlogging In Public

My first time EVER. I was waiting for my wife to finish her shopping and I just decided to switch the camera on and start vlogging. Of course I though everyone was watching but in truth, nobody cared. So I’m a happy camper. Big lesson. Check exposure and white balance.

Vlog 002 – Setting Direction

This vlog is about setting direction as to where I want this channel to go. I googled on checklists and items to think about when starting a YouTube Channel and I came accross this article https://vloggingguides.com/how-to-start-a-vlog/

It gave me some things that I need to start thinking about including:

Step 1 – Choose Your Audience
Step 2 – Invent Your Vlogging Brand
Step 3 – Create Your Channel Art
Step 4 – Plan your vlog content
Step 5 – Get Comfortable On Camera
Step 6 – Find Your First Subscribers
Step 7 – Network and Collaborate

I don’t have answers to most of the things above so the next few days, weeks and months is about looking for these answers. There are a lot of technical issues with this video including:
– framing and composition (my hands looks like its separate from my body)
-multicam (I actually set a second camera so that I can experiment with a multicam setup. That failed miserably)
– I wish the Panasonic FZ300 had a wider lens.

I think I may now need to switch to the Sony A7II with 16-35mm

The video also lacks:
– a story
– music
– proper intro and outro
– b-roll apart form the screenshot

The big plus though is I am pushing forward and gradually becoming more myself in front of the lens.

Equipment Camera
– Panasonic Lumix FZ300
Microphone BOYA BY-MM1
