(4/12). This short film entitled Piknik Panik is the fourth film directed by MM Kine Klub which has contributed to UMY’s achievements.

    MM Kine Club producer, Umar Al Jufri admitted that he and his team did not expect to win 1st place in this competition. “Honestly, we never expected to get 1st place, the target of winning is indeed there, but if the first winner is beyond our expectations,” Umar said, when contacted on Tuesday (7/12).

    In the Anti-Corruption Film Festival 2021 competition, there are at least 455 participants participating in this competition. Umar also admitted that in the production process, this film took more than 2 weeks. “In terms of preparation, we only spent 2 weeks developing the script, then for the shooting itself 2 days and that doesn’t include editing, and others,” he explained.

    Umar also revealed that at least 40 people were involved in the process of making this film. He also admitted that during the shooting process, he encountered several problems, ranging from shooting techniques to people shouting at him.

    “Honestly, the shooting process has its own challenges, for example in terms of licensing. The local police gave a floating answer, it was forbidden or not allowed, but they supported it. But the tourism office and other policy makers gave permission. When shooting we also have to be extra careful because of thison-road take, we were even shouted at by residents who were angry because our road was blocked for film production, “explained Umar.

    The story that is raised in this film is a reality that is still happening in society today, namely about the practice of extortion. The story in the Picnic Panic film is packaged in an epic way, which tells the story of a husband and wife who go on vacation when tourism is closed due to the pandemic.

    Umar himself said that the main target of the film he had worked on was to get good enthusiasm from the audience. “Actually, the film is not about competition, but how the film we make meets the audience, because it’s useless to make a film if no one is watching it,” Umar explained.

    At the end of the interview he also said that this victory was specially dedicated to Rozikan, SEI, MSI and Budi Dwi Arifianto S.Sn, M.Sn,. “We dedicate this victory to Pak Rozikan at the end of his service at LPKA as well as to Mas Budi Tobon as our coach who was very patient in galvanizing and directing us,” he concluded.
