Mahyuddin Ahmad holds a Ph.D in Film and Cultural Studies from Coventry University where he spent five years and more than half a million of tax payers’ money in getting his degrees. Currently he is teaching at the Film and Broadcasting Section, School of Communication, Universiti Sains Malaysia. He teaches courses in film and cultural studies at both undergraduate and post graduate levels. In his spare time he likes listening to music, ranging from asli music up to some extreme hardcore heavy metal. He used to play rugby but now only watches the game on television. His passion for riding is renewed recently and weekends are now filled with trips to Pattaya and Phuket. His research interest is mainly in Malaysian cinema, in particular the early film industry and P. Ramlee whom he believes is living in a castle with among others Elvis Presley, Frank Sinatra and Humphrey Bogart.
