Bront Palarae is certainly no small actor.  This up and coming Malaysian actor plays the supporting role of Sayed Rashid, an Arab trader who despise the local Raja and Almayer.

Bront gives Sayed Rasihd a dynamic presence in the trade conflict at Sambir, posing more threat to the already troubled Almayer.

Although Sayed Rashid is no villain in the story, he is certainly not welcomed by Raja Ibrahim and Almayer in their businesses.

backhoe

Construction works has begun.  The first task is to prepare a road to the set.  So that it"ll be easy to move the filming equipment to the set.  

 

The Road Not Taken

Two roads diverged in a yellow wood,
And sorry I could not travel both
And be one traveler, long I stood
And looked down one as far as I could
To where it bent in the undergrowth;
 
Then took the other, as just as fair
And having perhaps the better claim,
Because it was grassy and wanted wear;
Though as for that, the passing there
Had worn them really about the same,

And both that morning equally lay
In leaves no step had trodden black.
Oh, I kept the first for another day!
Yet knowing how way leads on to way,
I doubted if I should ever come back.

I shall be telling this with a sigh
Somewhere ages and ages hence:
two roads diverged in a wood, and I --
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.

-Robert Frost(1916)

The production team lead by Sam Hobbs, the production designer scout for a house for Almayer.  They went all the way to Terengganu to seek inspiration for the design of the house.  The problem with doing a period piece in Malaysia is getting the right information or documentation to assist the filmmaking.  

Although it is not the intention of the filmmaker to make the film to be a history textbook, it is vital for the production to get the facts as right as possible.  This is to move the story.  

For history buff, they may find some things are not really well placed in terms of period or it may be geographically incorrect, and may accuse the film of not getting it right.  Call it artistic license.

Kuala Lumpur 11 December 2009

Hello Everyone,

We will be asking a shortlist of actors to come in to our office and
meet with our director over the next few weeks. We are sorry for the
lack of communication about the next phase of our casting process
recently. We have been very busy visiting the location and having
pre-production meetings ...and its now going to get even busier! But of
course the casting of our movie is incredibly important as well.

We really appreciate everyone's interest in our movie - and hope that a
lot of the actors who uploaded their videos will join us on the set in
either small roles or bigger roles... you never know!

So, do keep an eye on what we are doing, and stay tuned for the next
round of our casting process.

Very best wishes,
Findingnina.com Management Team!
