Zo Hee (Make Movie), the sequel to Zo Gang, features cameo appearances by local film personalities, including Tan Pin Pin. She is well-known for her documentaries Singapore GaGa and Invisible City.
This picture was taken at the kopitiam opposite The Substation, which has since been demolished.

Zo Gang has been selected for 3rd Toronto Singapore Film Festival, 4-6 April 08. After touring Singapore, Germany, Switzerland, Taiwan, London and Hungary, Canada here we come!
From TSFF website:
“The Toronto Singapore Film Festival (TSFF) began in February 2006 with the passion of Singaporeans and Torontorians for Singaporean films. A grassroots and non-profit initiative, TSFF is one of the few film festivals devoted to Singaporean films outside Singapore, and has been playing to full houses since its inception…“
Back in May 2005, the Tak Giu cast went on the ESPN show, Football Crazy. Can you spot who’s who?
Coming soon on hosaywood.com, more old, hidden, unseen hosaywood photos and videos!
Here’s an article written for Sinema.sg awhile back:
People often ask me: “What was your budget for making Tak Giu?”
I’m not embarrassed to say: “Erm, actually I made it with no money.”
Yes, that’s true; you don’t really need money to make a short film. Many budding filmmakers often think they are faced with budget constraints, but let me share with you:
I’ll be going live on 100.3fm, Saturday 15 Dec from 1030pm onwards. Stay tuned to DJ Ah Wei’s program for a Hosaywood talk cock session!
Sinema Old School opened with a bang yesterday night and I was happy to be there. The opening film was Eric Khoo’s 12 Storeys, and upon watching it again on the big screen, you’ll discover many new things and will agree that this is a classic.
Sinema Old School is the first and only high-definition cinema solely devoted to Singapore films. This powerful indie 130-seater space will also host local band gigs, technology workshops and master-classes, film forums and dialogue sessions.
There’s also a store selling Singaporean Dvds, CDs, soundtracks, magazines, and movie merchandise. It’s located at Mount Sophia Old School (very hip place), about 10mins walk from Dhoby Ghaut MRT (or 20 mins if you walk very slow).

The Substation Theatre was again filled to capacity for the Best of First Take last night, marking the end of the weekend celebrations of Moving Images’ 10th Anniversary. Audiences were able to vote for their favourite film after the screening, and Fai won most votes with his film ‘Bob’.
Zo Gang and Zo Hee received good response, and we look forward to screening it again. An actor from another film said he was crying laughing while watching it.
We also got the audience to say ‘Hosay!’ for the Hosaywood ‘commercial’. Watch out for it soon!
