4th Singapore Short Cuts aftermath


Over 250 members attended the 4th Singapore Short Cuts last weekend. Tickets ran out 3 hours after they were released. Thanks for supporting local film!

A review and transcript of the Q&A session can be found at:
“…You can count on Jacen’s brand on local humour to bring that smile to your face, and its breezy pace, coupled with nuggets of funny jabs, make this a definite crowd pleaser.”

Kudos to Sun Koh, Eva Tang/Tay Bee Pin, Ryan Tan, and National Museum (Wenjie, Li Koon). Keep supporting the next 3 screenings!

Sold out – 4th Singapore Short Cuts Opening Week

Zo Gang

Meanwhile, here’s what some websites have been saying about Zo Gang:

“… Jacen Tan’s “Zo Gang” adds to his collection of 2-hokkien-syllabus short films. Without any big flourishing camera antics, the simple narrative allows the essence of the filmmaker to come through. And isn’t that what short films are about anyway? The message, the essence, the moment.”

“…Accurately portraying the local filmmakers and musicians’ woes in the most amusing manner. For anyone who dabbles in filmmaking before, Go Work will stick close to heart.”

“…Jacen Tan’s Zo Gang (Go work), starring an Ah-Beng looking protagonist who turns out to be more than he appears to be (putting an unexpected twist to the end), is just as entertaining. His constant whining, weird interpretation and frustration of local film and music, together with a slurring voice and droopy eyes, completes the short film in conveying the director’s statement of “speaking out on issues that were running through [his] mind”.
