The idea of Delusions didn't come to me all at once. There are many changes in the script even during the shooting process.

10 men were involved in the making of this short film. The budget in the making of this short film is quiet low, I only rented one 800w redhead and two c-stands for a day with the price of MYR 85. The other lights are home lights. The newspaper was created with Photoshop.

Edited using Premiere Pro CC 2017 and After Effects CC 2017. Titles & credits created with PowerPoint 2013 and Paint. In arranging the timeline there are parts where I actually mix different video clips with different audio of other takes, just to erase unwanted noises or for better actor's voices. I learnt a lot in the editing process that I had to undergo more than 45 hours of editing.

The song sang by the two main characters in the short film is 'Eternal Flame' by the Bangles. I played the cover of the song with my guitar.

A scene was shot in Hospital Wanita & Kanak-kanak Naluri for free, thanks to Dr. Shaheeran Abdul Hayi and her workers. Another location was the generosity of CP Wan for letting her use her apartment.
