Rapper Wee Meng Chee, better known as Namewee, is seeking funds from the National Film Development Corporation (Finas) to make his first movie titled 1Malaysia, reported Sin Chew Daily.
Wee said this was due to the 1Malaysia initiative started last year by Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak under which the Government has allocated RM200mil for the movie, art and entertainment industry.
Wee stressed that he did not mean to challenge Finas but to prove to the Chinese that he would be able to get the funding.
Should Finas not approve his application, Wee said he might try to obtain funding to produce a documentary.
The daily quoted Wee as saying he wanted to prove to the Chinese Malaysians that Finas WOULD fund people from their race.
“A number of friends in the movie industry said there is no way for a Chinese movie to get funds from Finas as only movies with 60% Malay language content can apply for it.They asked me not to dream of it. But I don’t agree,” Wee told reporters.
Wee, who is famous for his song Negarakuku, said he spent a few weeks to complete the script for his first movie 1Malaysia and has translated the script into Bahasa Malaysia.
He will submit the Bahasa Malaysia version of the script to Finas to seek funding.
