I found myself on the Los Dan Faun set the other day where they were shooting the toilet scene with Hans Isaac and Adlin Aman Ramlie. It’s amazing to see the amount of work being put to shoot what would end up as a relatively simple conversational scene in the movie. Anyways, as the crew was wrangling with the continuity of the scene, I got myself lost as to what the scene was all about, but I think it had to do with one of those breakthrough or archimedean “Eureka!” moments. Things like that always happen in the toilet, don’t they?
Speaking of those archimedean moments, Afdlin had me “enterframe” and then “leave my mark” in that scene. If it doesn’t end up on the cutting floor, I hope it will spark one of those pointless debates on whether one should do it standing up or sitting down even when acting it out. Maybe I should’ve done it handsfree or akimbo just to confound those who could even find the time to debate such matters.
