I daresay my involvement in Projek Kalsom 17 (PK17) had been accidental. I have long known about it, but never had the intention of joining. In fact, I was not even supposed to be back home this year. They way I ended up joining Projek Kalsom can be described as tripping over a rope, rolling down the hill and ending up in a pool of super epic fun stuff!
I met Hannah, the Director of PK17, during one of UKEC’s general meetings in London. We had a brief introduction and chatted for a while. I had to resist pinching her cheeks because I thought she was super cute. Haha!
Not long after, I was asked if I would like to be Production Manager for PK17’s pilot documentary trailer which Khairul ( a.k.a Abang Korea) will be directing. I knew him from high school and found it interesting so I took up the job. I was then inducted into the Publicity Team.
The first couple of months was mostly about developing and expanding ideas. The first challenge was promoting Projek Kalsom at the Career’s Fair in UCL earlier this year and filming the pilot documentary trailer during the event. That was when I first met Sasya as well.
Once the documentary trailer was out, I literally spammed the newsfeed with it. The trailer was submitted for the Digi Wwwwow Awards. Last seen the trailer video was in the top 25. We didn’t win but it certainly bought a degree of exposure to PK17.
It took me a tonne of PK17 preparation work to receive the epiphany of actually coming down to Malaysia to take part in the real thing. After many weeks of persuading mummy, she agreed to buy me a flight ticket home. *SCORE!!!!*
Over the duration of PK17 I was bouncing around as part of the productions manager, keeping tab on Khairul’s work, committee, and facilitator. I confess to being super exhausted but I had good fun with everyone involved.
Thank you all for the good times!
