Hi! I'm the filmmaker of 'Hawa' – A film about two children and their friendship in post-apocalyptic Malaysia. Ask Me Anything!
Hi! Thank you so much for watching 'Hawa'. I'm Ce Ding, and I wrote, directed, and edited the film back in 2016. Since then, I am proud to say that 'Hawa' has gone on to win the Best Film, Best Director and Best Sound Design and Best Screenplay Awards in the BMW Shorties (2016), the most prestigious and longest running short film festival in Malaysia. The following year, ‘Hawa’ went on to clinch awards for Best Short Film, Best Director, Best Cinematographer, Best Sound Design in the Malaysia Digital Film Awards (MDFA) 2017.
I started my career as a production assistant for several local movies and eventually took on the role of Assistant Director in the advertising filmmaking industry. Under the tutelage of top local directors, I was able to refine and expand my repertoire of filmmaking techniques. I have since collaborated with a wide spectrum of international directors from Australia, England, Korea, Thailand, Singapore and Indonesia.
Feel free to ask me any questions you have or share your thoughts on 'Hawa' with me. (:
Ask Ce Ding about his experience filming with children, location-scouting experience, and future works etc.)
