A satisfying and well executed film!
GREAT cinematography (found out the cinematographer is a woman and it totally made sense), effortless performances, efficient and eloquent editing, honest and straightforward story. Happy to see such a level headed production, no fuss and nothing trying too hard on this one.
PS: Jadi, Gulai Kepala Ikan paling oke di Jakarta itu di mana sih? Jadi ngidem bingits gegara film ini 😋 with Carline, Mac, Aoura, and Chaya – View on Path.

"You cannot buy me, but you can rent me! I’m a hired gun but I know how to handle guns. It’s the only thing I want!” Karl Lagerfeld on his work ethics.
It’s always amazing to see how contemporary the mind of this 81 year old is. His way of balancing detachment from work with a full commitment to idealism is truly inspiring. This applies to the houses (Chanel & Fendi) he works for, to his own label. Which has its fair share of ups and downs and he admitted to only keep going for the sake of keeping his team. He also decided early on, that he does not want to be the owner of his own label to maintain a separation between himself and the label as a business. His label went through many owners and on each occassion he was open for the suggestions of what it should and could be. This way of thinking is rarely found on the current culture of “Me, Me, Me” where everyone thinks that creating a brand or a business must be coming from a “me” perspective.
Most of the time, we take it personally when our work is assessed, getting defensive, emotional and sensitive when anything (negative and postive) is said about our work. It’s important to remember that at the end of the day, it is about our work not about ourselves. And it is essential that, to remain professional, we need to learn to separate our work from our personal wants and needs.

Setelah sekian lama “puasa” membaca blog, malam ini somehow tertuntun untuk melek dan berkunjung ke blognya Andra. Seneng campur kaget saat melihat sekarang Andra makin fasih menulis, makin nyaman bercerita dan makin rutin bikin blog post.
One article after another lead me to this post at Abenk’s blog (Andra’s husband). Membaca ini, baru ngeh kalau lagu “Teristimewa” yang bikinan Abenk itu ternyata tentang Andra! Dobel-dobel rasa terharunya, terutama karena jadi ingat saat di New York bareng Andien, Didi dan Leo untuk syuting video klip lagu ini. Lima hari yang dipenuhi hilir mudik di Soho, lari-lari di Lincoln Center bareng Cindy + Anas + Sonia, “moonwalking” di Brooklyn Bridge, dan diakhiri dengan nyeker karena kecapekan ahahaha!
Juga bikin ingat saat bareng Stanley Allan dan Pras, kita bikin foto dan video pre-wed buat Andra & Abenk. You two are still my favorite couple to direct! Especially since there were no direction needed, auto pose all the way ahahaha 😆
This little story made the song and video clip extra extra extra special for me. Made me happy to be a small part of this beautiful serendipity. Made me happy to be a part of this love story. This reminds me that in life, everything connects, and every cause has a reason. Everything and everyone IS connected! *mewek malem-malem*
Much love and miss each of you much ❤️❤️❤️ *peluk satu-satu*
