The English Surgeon was a tastefully executed and informative film which I felt gave its audience a good insight into the otherwise little-known world of neurosurgery.
It was very satisfying aesthetically, as seen from these instances:many wide shots – of the clinic, of the scenery pre-emptive wide, still shots waiting for people to walk towards the camera short, clipped, fast-paced sequences when the Read more →
Here’s a simple edit of the first exercise!
Part of my documentary required me to film for Lion City Throwdown. An international dance event that is organized by Flair Brothers , one of Singapore’s most well known dance crew. This is the 6th and the last LCT and by far the biggest of it series. I had the privilege of filming alongside RP productions for this and am Read more →
Recently interviewed Xiao Mei who has street dance experience of about 9 years. I ended up not only interviewing her but taking shots for two of her classes and joined her kakis for supper later on! Total of 4 hours spent! This are some of the raw clips I took of her [ Interview , dance segment and supper conversations Read more →
A short documentary I put together for practise. Stories are everywhere,so I might as well kill 2 birds with one stone. I’m still in the midst of setting it up the context and subtitle for this film!
In Singapore , it is common for the locals to have “maids” and unlike a term overseas , being labelled a maid is not an offensive Read more →
Find out his motivation and passion in singing. Has been joining singing competitions since 16.
He has been singing for 8 years but he is not trying to venture into the scene.

Due to the fact that we would like to expand the story about the half blinded Patricia Poo into a broader story we decided to form a group of three people including Frieder, Janos, and me.
We decided to make our documentary about (up to) three half blinded or completely blind people to compare their different ways of Read more →
Just a follow up to my thought that you need a 3rd leg for your film, in terms of another character. It might be that you can’t find one, if that is so, then I suggest you make the 3rd leg the world of the visually impaired and the blind, the place in which they exist. In any case I think you need this for the film, because the film really is for sighted people since the sighted are in the majority. Therefore you need to give us something of their points of view, or attempt to visualize the world of visual impairment. If you were able to do this, and also find another person who could be the 3rd leg, then that would be ideal. Either way, give your chess man a call and see what might be possible. Perhaps you could interview someone who is old and fully blind perhaps, for contrast?
Have a think. Good work so far, but try and push it further. Do watch the documentary I gave you to watch. You will see what I was talking about.
My Group and I have interviewed 2 out of the 4 farms we were planning to featuring in the Documentary.
We initially had 6 farms which were willing to be featured but we felt that 6 would have been overkill as most of them would talk about similar things. So instead we chose the 4 most diverse farms. Diverse in their Read more →

V.O with images
Why there’s a creation of religion?

Virtue Only humans can discern truth. Of all life on the planet, only humankind can rise above conditioning or instinct and identify truth, so that this Read more →
My team and I were very interested in Singapore’s farming culture — all we knew of it as millennials was that the ones in Singapore had a kind of tourism vibe to it. We initially considered if it was just unconventional farms that made us think of Agritourism – such as the crocodile and frog farms here – but upon Read more →
