To be an artwork, you have to shoot, find the right talent, and all the other technical factors. When that script is executed carelessly, it will be visually poor.” He said.
The script he meant is a series entitled “Madar”, which tells of a young man graduating from criminology and a former convict, named Galang. The series explores criminal stories that must be solved in every episode.
