Thank you SGIFF for having me on the discussion panel: What happens after your first film?
Jacen Tan’s first feature, Zombiepura, was a box office success in Singapore cinemas in 2018. His striking use of horror and comedy in a local context earned him the title of ‘Singapore’s latest film funnyman’ by The Straits Times.
When asked about the difference between commercial and independent features, Tan feels that “a commercial film can still have an independent voice in it and vice versa, an independent film can still have commercial sensibilities.
Was a great learning experience from K. Rajagopal, Wong Chen-hsi and Jeremy Chua. Read a recap of the discussion here. It was a fantastic festival overall and I got to watch and learn from many films and filmmakers.
Variety Magazine covered the SGIFF panel discussion I was in. Thanks to the organisers for having me! Read the full Variety article.

Thank you Apple Singapore for inviting me and my composers Joe Ng & Ting Sihao to give a talk! We shared the process, tips and tricks of composing music for the movie. Using Garageband, we also composed music on the spot for a scene from the movie, recreating the creative banter between us filmmakers. After that, it was the participants’ turn to make music for a scene that was looping on the big screen. Interesting to hear the different genres of music they came up with!
It’s an honour to be featured as ‘Red Dot Heroes’ by Apple.
