ebaner sf1 01INTRODUCTION

Life is about everlasting connections of experiences, occurrences and relations. Many times one may pass various life-instances that may provoke emotions, induce reflections, trigger deep thoughts resulting in fresh perspective and maturity. While many of these life-moments are vivid to the individual experiencing it, the describing and sharing of such encounters often falls short. It is a pity that such pivotal, life-touching moments cannot be effectively shared; the dramatic moment is extremely difficult to reproduce, the storytelling needs to be intense, the ambiance would need to be lively and the outcome needs to as impactful to the listener/viewer, as much as the person going through the life-moment.

Enter ‘Lights! Camera! Action!’

Films are one of the ways that one can convey such moments effectively.

With clear and strong objectives, engaging and patient storytelling, excellent acting and choreographing, the adequate fusion of technology and traditional approaches, such life-moments can be recreated. Films are meant to forge deep human connections which are relatable and comprehensible, resulting in interest and passion with long-lasting impact. Films have the power to express a culture's ideas and shape them, providing a clear message to be shared and valued. 

To create such impact within Universiti Sains Malaysia (USM), various stories relating to life-moments in USM need to be shared effectively and persuasively. Using films as a media is one avenue to ensure authentic and sincere sharing, a  nurturing step towards a long-lasting University-Scholar relationship. It is interesting to observe the quality and impact of this program, and how such approaches may appeal to USM’s millennial crowd. Not only this program shall provide the platform to develop new talents, it shall serve as a sharing platform of ‘USM-experiences’ to a wide audience.
