What makes a bloody good storyboard artist? Augustus Tan reveals!

Dain Said’s second film, Interchange, is set to be released in Malaysian cinemas on December 1. Eksentrika catches up with the man behind the visualisation of the film, Augustus Tan, who began sketching since he was a kid.  But first, here’s a taste of Interchange.

Sloka 14 – Dari kawasan gunung-ganang ini, naiklah ke langit dengan muka engkau menghadap ke utara. Pada waktu itu, pasti akan ada kumpulan wanita di kawasan berdekatan mendongak untuk memandang ke arah engkau. Mereka mungkin akan tertanya-tanya apakah tiupan angin kencang sedang meruntuhkan puncak gunung. Engkau teruskanlah perjalanan sambil memastikan engkau tidak bertembung dengan Dingnaga, iaitu empat gajah mistik yang mengawal empat arah angin. Sloka 15 – Seterusnya, engkau akan melihat busur...
