“The proudest moment in my career is when I got to put on the Malaysian jersey,” said Vicnesvaran Varatharajoo at the debut of Shout it Out

It all began when a mother brought her son to his dojo to learn Karate more than ten years ago, re recalled while holding back tears. 

Her son was deaf and Vicnesvaran didn’t know sign language. But he couldn’t deny the boy a chance to pursue his passion. So he took him in. 

Since then, Vicnesvaran took in more disabled students, founded Malaysia’s first deaf Karate team, and his students have won several championships all over the world.

Recently Vicnesvaran’s decade-long journey was made into a 10-minute short film shot entirely on the vivo X70 Pro. 

Shout it Out, the short film inspired by Vicnesvaran’s story, follows Siti (played by Nurizyan Hishammuddin), a deaf girl who wants to learn Karate and wants to become a national Karate athlete. 

At the same time, the story tells the struggles and sacrifices that her coach (played by Seelan Manoheran) had to make the dreams of differently-abled athletes like her come true. 

“It was all about the numbers,” said Shout it Out director Mallory Lee when commenting about his experience shooting with the vivo X70 Pro. “It’s all about playing with the ISO, shutter speed, and exposure”.

The Shout it Out was debuted on Wednesday, 20 Jan at Dadi Cinema in Pavillion Bukit Bintang.

Among those in attendance were the National Film Development Corporation Malaysia (FINAS) chairman, Zakaria Abdul Hamid; and vivo Malaysia CEO, Mike Xu.

Since the debut the short film has also been released on YouTube and you can watch it here.
