In conjunction with Malaysia Day, Canon Marketing Malaysia (“Canon”) has collaborated with Hundred TOP Legend to film a short video in celebration of Malaysia’s unique mixed multiculturalism, diversity and unity. The exclusive screening event took place at Golden Screen Cinema, Mid Valley Megamall today featuring two short films shot with Canon’s Cinema EOS cameras.
Titled “Negaraku: Teguh Bersama”, the video follows three (3) students in search of their missing Malaysia flag; and along their journey, they learned new skills and culture from different races. Director Yiewin Kang from Hundred TOP Legend, who has been in the wedding and filming industry for 20 years, illustrated the short film in 8K quality through “CinePhotography” which is a mixed medium incorporating a combination of videography and photography.
The second video, “AirPixel 8K Kuala Lumpur Drone Film, Negaraku” was done in collaboration with Film Edge Sdn. Bhd. filmed back in 2021, showcasing Kuala Lumpur through various drone aerial shots captured in 8K resolution. The video was well recognized and received acknowledgement from the Malaysia Book of Records for the First True 8K Drone Aerial Video In Malaysia and South-East Asia.
“In commemoration of Malaysia Day, Canon is honoured to partner with Hundred TOP Legend and Film Edge in celebrating the founding of Malaysia and the nation’s progress through the artistic expression of CinePhotography. We are delighted to support these 2 short films with our models in the Cinema EOS series – the Canon EOS R5 C – to elevate CinePhotography to greater heights and expand the possibilities for imaginative storytelling”, said Hunter Zhang, Director of Image Communications Business Division, Canon Marketing Malaysia.
