Zombiepura: It’s a wrap!

IT’S A BLOODY WRAP!!! 7 years in the making, months of preparation, over 100 crew members and extras, gallons of blood, sweat and tears, one month of shoot… Thank you to all zombies! We have finally finished filming the movie and will move into post-production now.

Yahoo! Zombiepura!

This morning, I announced my first feature film Zombiepura at Screen Singapore / ATF 2017 at Marina Bay Sands. We were onstage with the stars and producers of my film, Alaric, Benjamin Heng, and our partners Clover Films, mm2 Entertainment. Special thanks to Singapore Film Commision too!

After a long 7 year journey, I guess this press conference makes it ‘official’. This article by Yahoo sums up our road to making this movie. Shoot begins in January 2018!

Eight years ago, Singaporean film director Jacen Tan produced a script inspired by the monotonous overnight stints he had to serve while on guard duty during National Service. The fan of the “Shaun of the Dead” film felt like a zombie during those moments, which led him to produce a script for upcoming comedy film “Zombiepura”, set to begin filming in January 2018. – Yahoo Singapore

 

Sungei Road Thieves’ Market

The sights and sounds of Sungei Road Thieves’ Market. Filmed on the last weekend before it was ‘demolished’. Getting scolded by an Auntie: priceless.

Homeground film review by SINDIE

20160204_homegroundreview_sindie

“Homeground is, on instant viewing, visually more polished, colour-graded to perfection, cinematographically refined by today’s conventions and so cleanly-scripted, it could pass off as a national campaign commercial…

…It documents a string of regular soccer games played at several venues in Singapore from Chinatown to Bukit Timah, from Serangoon to Seletar. Through interspersing these different stories with each other, ‘Homeground’ paints an informative cross-section of Singapore demographics. There are racial representations of each kind (even Ang Mohs), women, foreign workers and even seniors like the film’s anchor character, taxi-driver, Steven Wong (photo below). it is almost like a utopian world of soccer enthusiasts of every background who are all united by their love for soccer.”
