Making films, the Hosaywood way!

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:

Sinema Old School opens!

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).

Kwa Hee (Watch movie) there is only $5 and $4 for students. For more info visit Sinema Old School and Sinema.sg!

Best of First Take 2007

Nice crowd at Best of First Take

Best of First Take 10 Dec 07 Kristin with Fai, winner of Audience Choice Well done organisers!

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!
