BANDUNG, unpas.ac.id – Unpas student art organization, LISMA (Lingkung Seni Mahasiswa), under supervision of Vice Rector III, is currently preparing a short film as its main project of 2020/2021. The production is based on the Covid-19 pandemic condition which limits all activities of LISMA, so it is not possible to run and hold the project by involving huge mass.
This short film is expected to have and run on 25-30 minutes of duration, describing a story about campus underground as part of campaign of anti-drug abuse and woman’s exploitation. In the production, LISMA collaborated with National Narcotics Agency (Badan Narkotika Nasional, BNN) and West Java Woman’s Empowerment Office and Protection of Children and Family Planning (Dinas Pemberdayaan Perempuan Perlindungan Anak dan Keluarga Berencana, (DP3AKB).
“The main project of this period is in accordance with the recommendation of Vice Rector III, Dr. H. Deden Ramdan, M.Si as its Head of Student Affairs. The project is called LISMA Movement Creativity (LIMIT) which is based on the limitation during Covid-19 pandemic. We work together with BNN and West Java DP3AKB in order to elaborate the limitation and justification in the idea and storyline made,” said Head of LISMA, Ziyan Khatami, at Unpas Campus II, Jalan Tamansari No. 6-8, Bandung, on Thursday (April 29th, 2021).
If it sticks to the plan, this short film will be released in the mid of June 2021 and is now being produced. All casts and production teams are members of LISMA, also helped by the direction of The Panasdalam Bank, especially about tips of producing and making film.
Ziyan said that the idea formulation and scenario writing took a long time, about 2 months much or less. The shooting took place on 3 locations, namely BNN office, Unpas and a private school.
“Seeking for the idea, writing scenario and making a storyboard are the hardest ones. We cannot force to make it really quick, because we wanted [our] film to be perfect and optimal. However, the casts and human sources are already optimal, we thought,” he said.
Previously, LISMA has worked on producing film several times, but it was only a parody-themed and was not the main project at all. If it is possible, this short film will be released in Bandung Creative Hub and it will show the performances of LISMA art unit.
Until now, LISMA has five art units, namely Theater and Literature, Sundanese Art, Music and Choir, Dance Creation and Photography. Each members of the unit are now busy with practice that will be shown on the film release.
“This short film is probably our ‘serious’ official project. If it is not possible to release it in Bandung Creative Hub, we will make it published and released digitally,” he ended. (Reta Amaliyah S)*
