IT'S A WRAP!






Shooting my second movie has been the most compelling experience in my life. Looking back, it seems impossible to shoot on those difficult locations only in 32 days. We had four cities, 27 locations, and 70 sets. We had to block crazy traffic in Semarang and Jakarta, race against sunset and sunrise, shooting approximately 18 hours a day. Semarang, Central Java, can reach up to 42 degree Celcius (108 F) during the day, everybody looked so tanned. One military officer went into one-week detention in jail because his superior officer didn't get his message that we were gonna use their military housing and we had to do guerilla filmmaking because we didn't get the permit of some of the locations. But the crew and the cast's morale was incredible high and everybody seemed to have the time of their life. When we looked at the rushes, we made a huge smile on our face. We were making a kick-ass movie that will blow people away.

Here's some of the photos of the making of "Dead Time".

P.S. Our official website is coming very soon. :))

    Jok... Gw berharap ama elo!
    Itu aja!!

    In the name of resurrection terhadap film indonesia tentunya. Beberapa filmaker yang meretas bangkitnya perfilman lokal ternyata semakin melempem...
    So far, gw 100% yakin ama premise DEAD TIME... Moga2 sesuai ekspetasi gw...


    Btw JANJI JONI is one of the greatest indonesian film of all time!...

    regards
    JOE
