Updates: A New Short Film, Secondary School, and Happy New Year!

What’s up people of the world? 😀

First of all, I would like to wish you a happy and prosperous 2011!

2010 has been a great year for me and I hope it was a great year for you too 🙂

I was going to post this earlier, but I’ve been really, really busy since it’s been the first weeks of secondary school.

Here are 6 events in 2010 that are very special to me.

  1. I was the first runner-up in the Blog4FT contest.
  2. I wrote my 1Malaysia song.
  3. I became a host for TV2’s program Kembara@Kids on 2. (Watch me! – RTM TV2, each Saturday, shown during cartoon breaks every half hour from 7:30am – 10:00am [i.e. 7:30, 8:00, 8,30 … 10:00])
  4. I got 5A’s in the UPSR exam!
  5. My second poetry book, Creative Row Your Boats, was appreciated and ordered by the National Libraries of Malaysia.
  6. I made my first short film!

Secondary School

So yeah, I’ve turned 13 years old on January 3rd, 2011, so I’m no longer 12 years old. *sighs* Time flies like an arrow. Fruit flies like a banana.

(Hahaha. Get it? “Fruit flies” *like* a banana. :P)

So now, I’m in Victoria Institution (aka V.I.) secondary school. I’m really thankful I got into this school, because it is one of the oldest schools in Kuala Lumpur.

The first weeks of school has been great for me. I made a lot of new friends.

I stay in a hostel, and I can only get to go back home approximately once a week, so I couldn’t go online frequently, at the moment.

Short Film: The Highest Skyscraper on Earth

My first short film, is called The Highest Skyscraper on Earth, based on my poem. I finished it during the last week of December 2009. It is something that I’ve been wanting to do for a long time.

Here it is! 🙂

I hope you enjoyed it!

I’ll really appreciate it if you can give it a thumbs up/favorite on YouTube or share it with your friends. Thanks a lot! 🙂

It took me about 1 week to finish the whole thing because I had to illustrate the illustrations, edit the video, and compose the music too.

If you want to see how I made it, here is the making-of and behind-the-scenes. Although it is 10 minutes, I hope you take the time to watch it 🙂 .

I hope you enjoyed both videos! Thank you very much for viewing them! 🙂

Plans for Gloson Blog

Even though I live in a hostel, I’ll do my best to find a way to manage my blog as well.

And maybe, since I’ve done the making-of for my short film, I think I’ll consider vlogging (or video-blogging) because you can be more creative with it and your readers will get to know you on a more personal level. Vlogging is a thing that complements your blogging!

Also, I’ve got a blog post by a guest blogger coming up on the 31st of January. More interesting posts are on the way too, so stay tuned my dear readers! 🙂

Cheers and Bestest Regards,
Gloson
