However for him to be that, the creative industry needs to…you know. You can’t pay scraps for this much of work.
Another person chimed in to say that the video quality beats KRU Studios, the studio behind local films such as Cicakman.

He once impressed Malaysians with this edit he did for Will Smith’s movie Gemini Man.
Hopefully, his talent will be recognized and put to good use to help improve our local film industry.
