17 Jul Missing Sun
Missing Sun production was the work of Harvest Generation Church. It was a great performance, incredible casts, incredible story, incredible lights, incredible choreography and incredible direction by none other than the director, Jeffery Yeo, who invited me to shoot this production for him.
Location was at the EX8 Studio, SS13 Subang Jaya. My first time there, and it was huge. Below are a few shots of the pre-show keynotes and uh… some singing.
Below is the synopsis of the production for those who are interested (taken from Missing Sun’s Facebook page):
The play takes place 1000 years from now, in a post apocalyptic world, where the sun shines no more. After the great world war, many major cities are desolated and few humans remain. Humans and robots co-habit the earth, striving to survive in a harsh forsaken world. The earth is shrouded by a mysterious black smoke, blocking the sun since time immemorial. Things are gloomy and dark; the rule under the tyrant Monuska and his brutal Sentinels make the separation between human and robots even greater.
This is the story of an android named Ony(x)ron who woke up from a long slumber only to discover the dire situation the world is in. Armed with courage and a message left by his Master, his Creator, he sought out to save the world. Together with friends he made along the way: Ootoka the 800 year old female android, Robo Wheelie a mechanical droid and Fey a surviving human refugee, they journeyed together to find solution to the mysterious missing sun while battling ominous Sentinels, unexpected villains, meeting strange friends, raiding large cities, fighting for freedom and bringing hope to a lost world. Using dance, music and songs, this story is told to bring across the message of hope and salvation.

And the sunlight finally breaks through the dissipating thick smoke which were produced by the artificial moon. If you are reading this, Jeffery, casts and crews, a job well done and I’m sure there are many people who can’t wait for your next production!
