A short piece I cut together from the footage, since 95% of everybody we interviewed say they are happy I decided to cut the most engaging pieces together with a light hearted tone to it. I just hope it does not come off as cheesy… which I feel it might be, on second thought haha.
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 content, backstory and unique crops that they grow.
We are still looking into other alternative content to shoot, i.e. Supermarket B-roll, Markets, Midnight Pasir Pangjang Wholesale Market, Hawker centre B-roll.
We are also looking into securing some vox pops of the common man, asking them several interview questions as to how much they know about Local Farming in Singapore.
Other interviewees we are looking into:
Note on Farmer’s Market, There is a farmer’s market in October, we are still in discussion whether or not to film and cover this event (held by local farms in Singapore) we feel it may serve as a great conclusion to our documentary, seeing local farms come together and the crowds they attract.
A comprehensive document of Our team’s documentary Idea is in the PDF link below
My fellow teammates are Lauren Teo, Clarinda Tin, Matthew Lee
The idea we have chosen is that farms are being relocated by the government and how they cope with such a move.
The idea is to tackle the serious issue yet with a fairly hopeful and light hearted tone. Focusing more of the tenacity of the farmers and their never say die attitude.
52% reminded me of one of those artsy films, oh wait it most certainly was.
I feel it adequately shows the how more is said when less is said. Having it’s strongest moments in silence. For example silence after the talking head interview was more impactful for me rather than her talking about the dream she had.
The sickly blue hue in the dance studio was a strong indication of the atmosphere in of itself.
The realism of the film was a main draw factor for me. Immersing me into her world.
