Taylor’s University Book Club would like to extend an invitation to all Taylorians to come join us for a scripting talk with Khairil M. Bahar.
Here’s a little background info regarding the speaker:
Born in the Philippines and raised in England, Khairil has been in love with the movies since he first saw ‘Back to the Future’ and made his name on the local indie film scene with his debut feature film ‘Ciplak’ which was shot on a shoestring budget of RM10,000 and won him the Anugerah Skrin in 2006 for ‘Best Alternative Film’.
Since then Khairil has worked on television shows such as ‘Dark City’ and ‘Ghost: Season 2’, shot music videos for a number of local acts such as Dragon Red and Soft Touch and is currently in post-production for his next feature film ‘Relationship Status’ starring Gavin Yap, Davina Goh, Susan Lankester, Daphne Iking, Tony Eusoff, Baki Zainal, Ruzana Ibrahim, Amanda Ang, Adeline Ong, Alfred Loh, Shuba Jay, Benji Lim, Will Quah and Pete Teo. The film is due for an early January release.
When not making films he plays guitar in blues rock band ‘Rollin Sixers’ who recently released their debut album which he produced and engineered and has also been involved in the local theatre scene in shows such as ‘Jambalaya’, ‘Short and Sweet’, ‘Lost and Found’, ‘Life Sdn Bhd 6: Abuse’ and ‘Bars and Bedrooms’.
Details of the talk:
Day/Date: Wednesday, 28th September 2011

The objective of this event is to expose Book Club members as well as other students to the world of writing and in particular, scriptwriting. We would like to invite you to an hour-long sharing session with Khairil in producing a script and what are the methods and processes that he usually uses when writing a script or any piece of written work.
With that being said, we hope to see y’all there! :) We assure you that this talk will be extremely insightful and you will definitely learn something out of it. Now, you wouldn’t miss such a golden opportunity, do you? ;)
