Note From Founder:

Reservoir Productions are the people behind a lot of the PETRONAS ads that you would probably have watched on numerous platforms. The most recent one being #AWalkThroughTime for Merdeka and Malaysia Day 2014. I requested to screen works from two of their young star Directors, Quek Shio Chuan and Adam Sinclair.

Quek burst into the scene when his short film GUANG (above) but not many people know that he paid his dues in the production scene before getting the opportunity to produce something like GUANG. I’ve personally seen him put in the work when he was doing wardrobe for SEPULUH, a Astro Citra drama of which I was acting in. He had to deal with sweaty jerseys, socks and football boots (among other things) for more than 20 actors and extras.

Adam is also a guy who’s paid his dues and didn’t just find himself becoming a Director by chance. (*Lifted from Reservoir’s website)¬†Before Reservoir Production, Adam had been working on long form work and had single handedly come up with the concept, script and production of Project Pop which is a local youth initiative translated into a local Program. I haven’t had the chance to personally be directed by him or produce something of his. However, he and I did share some screen time in Fried Chillies “I EAT KL”. That was fun!

The following is lifted from thei Reservoir Production website :

“INTRICATE WORK MADE EFFICIENTLY SIMPLE

Some of which have won International Accolades.
