KUALA LUMPUR: The National Film Development Corporation (Finas) chairman Datuk Hans Isaac is not affected by criticisms for resolving “petty” issues instead of bigger problems plaguing the entertainment industry.
Hans said that as an industry player himself, he understood the concerns by fellow artistes in wanting changes and improvements be made fast.
He however added that not all problems were of similar magnitude, with some needing more time to resolve than others.
“Not many things can be solved overnight. I agree there are many bigger problems compared to the makeup issue such as filming funds, copyright, tax rebate, payment and many more. Of course, the bigger the problem, the longer the time it’ll take to resolve,” he said, adding that many felt that the makeup issue only benefitted a small group of people in the industry.
“Let’s resolve one problem at a time. After this, who knows an issue concerning directors and producers will come next,” he said.
Hans, 48, who was appointed as Finas chairman on April 8, recently announced a restriction for younger actors to play elder characters. It takes effect beginning next year.
