Penang’s surreal underbelly

Working with tourism boards traditionally results in bright, sunny, happy interpretations of destinations. Penang, Malaysia has all this to offer but for the Rat & Dragon team, it was the nighttime hustle and bustle of the island’s main city that held most magic.

In an experimental portfolio production the team explore the flip side of the city’s historic centre, hidden lane ways and world class street art. “We really wanted to show Georgetown’s nighttime soul,” explains producer Nicola, who also directed the piece, “something you usually only get to experience when you’re here. We’ve loved the project and can’t wait to produce more like it”.

A rather unusual way to start the day

Eat, Sleep, Office, Repeat. The new 9-5 may be a 8-7 plus overtime on 3 jobs to keep afloat, but not if you’re living in sunny Thailand’s most famous marine reserve.

The Rat & Dragon team are on location shooting a rather different ‘day in the life’ of Maca, one of the island’s resident dive instructors. “It may take a few seconds to clock on to her actual routine,” explains producer Nicola, “as we tell her story by winding time backwards.”

“The local team have been fantastic,” director Saxon Yuen tells us, “and despite its party reputation, Phi Phi is an incredibly beautiful place”. Thinking of a career change?

Thank you for all your dedicated work on this project. As you know the company is very happy with the new content and we are really looking forward to getting out there and using in our marketing material.  Will certainly be in touch if we need further video content in the future.
