Description:
Our short film is about Adam, who has been trying to get himself into a stable relationship with a girl, but his tacky methods of flirting have driven away more damsels instead of drawing them to him. He consults a friend to help him in getting a perfect date, and in return she sets him up on a blind date. Adam is matched with a single young woman, Jenn, who faces the same situation. The thing about Jenn is that she lacks understanding on figurative language, which puts Adam in a difficult position as he intends to use catchy pick-up lines to get her to swoon over him. Jenn takes whatever Adam says the wrong way and eventually she realises that he is a disturbing man that should be avoided.

The initial concept of the story is very different from the current one that we have confirmed. We made changes to the ending as we felt that the first one was out of place with the style of our film. It ended with Adam being thirsty and started to get hallucinations of the sea being a vast puddle of blueberry juice. He then proceeded to the sea to drown himself in hopes of making himself dehydrated. Jenn, realizing that Adam is unaware of his actions, followed him to the sea and dragged him out of the waters, and then telling him to speak ‘normally’ as he uses a lot of figurative language. We felt like this ending was abrupt and lacks content.

We also got feedback from our supervisor (Wesley), stating that he did not understand the conclusion and was worried that our audience will face the same. We then proceeded to improve on it by making Adam feeling demoralized by what Jenn said and left her angrily. Jenn tried to reconcile by immediately sending him a text message asking him for dinner the following weekend. Adam smiled and went back to Jenn, and they both walked off to the sunset.

Since the genre of our short film is romantic-comedy, we felt like it is better to utilize the 5-minute limit of the assignment by implementing comedic elements so that it is consistent for the viewers to keep track, rather than having a dramatic episode at the end, where the audience will be taken aback and most likely get confused.

We then came up with a script that circles around Jenn’s involvement in a music competition. Adam continues to use expressive words and idioms such as ‘ants in pants’, ‘break a leg’ and ‘don’t be a chicken’ while talking to Jenn regarding the competition. Jenn understood it negatively and feels that Adam is creeping her out, resulting in her leaving him. Everyone agreed that the new ending is feasible and has more potential of making people laugh than the previous drafts so we went ahead with it.

The latest script is also more hassle-free in terms of production as it has omitted the part where Adam goes to the sea to drown himself. We were worried about this because it might be costly and risky for us to carry it out as our equipment might get damaged and it poses a great risk to the cast playing Adam.



Aydee Dzukrie+

Biography
Aydee enrolled in Singapore Polytechnic in 2013 after completing his ‘O’ Levels, choosing Diploma in Visual Effects and Motion Graphics as his field of study. After watching a video on YouTube titled ‘Rewind YouTube Style 2012’, Aydee was inspired by the production value of the video and intends to pursue a career in video making. He looked through catalogues by various polytechnics to find the perfect course and eventually he chose SP because he felt that studying film in DVEMG is like killing two birds with one stone. He believed that he would obtain knowledge in many aspects of visual arts such as compositing, graphic design, videography, and video editing.

In the first semester of his third year, he signed with Oak3 Films for a mandatory Industrial Training Programme. During his time as an intern in the TV production company, he was assigned to become an art assistant, a motion graphics artist and a production assistant. He has contributed to a drama telemovie ‘Spelling Armadillo 2’ and ‘Jalan SG50’, a Malay-language documentary. The knowledge and skills he have acquired from his internship programme was what he equipped prior to embarking his journey to his Final Year Project in the upcoming semester.

Throughout his years in SP, he discovered his interest in motion graphic design. From what he have understood, producing a two-dimensional motion graphics sequence only requires two softwares; Adobe Illustrator for illustrating and Adobe After Effects for animating. Apart from the ease of obtaining these mediums, getting used to the straightforward features of the programmes is also not an issue. Considering the situation in Singapore, he considers this as a viable career path after graduation.

Troy Tay+

Biography
Fresh out of Secondary School, Troy hadn’t had a clue on where to go after seeing his results. He initially entered Singapore Polytechnic’s Engineering course believing that it would be an area he would be interested in. After a half a year in, he finally realised that his passion was in filmmaking, and thus initiated his transfer into his current course of Visual Effects and Motion Graphics.

In the course, he was faced with the decision of doing production or post-production, hence having acquired some skills in editing and doing Motion Graphics & Visual Effects in Premiere Pro and After Effects respectively.

It was only during internship, he was exposed more into the production side of film making and thus gained a particular interest in being a grip as he has more of an inclination towards lighting and rigging.

After national service, he intends to continue freelancing as a junior grip to further develop my lighting and rigging exposure and he plans to continue with his peers in developing their Youtube Channel, “KillerWhale Productions”, so that they can expose the Singaporean YouTube community that there is more than one way to make videos, especially in a narrative sense.

Two alike Description-

Description:
The film is about the relationship between a living human and an object. In this film, we incorporate two ideas from different dimension, one from live-action and another in a graphical world.

We wanted to try putting both live-action and 2D motion design, and concept art into one film which we believe it is something DVEMG has never done before and decided to give it a try. Despite knowing that it will be challenging, we wanted to do what we can because if there is no challenge, there will be no sense achievement.

The title of our film is ‘Two Alike’ simply because the film is about the similarities of two persons, one in live-action and one in 2D animation. And also about two objects, one in each dimension, a phone and a club. The title of this film is also a pun of “too alike” when read, simply to emphasize the similarities of the two objects.

In this film, we wanted to show the relationship between living and non-living thing. We were deeply inspired by the movie ‘Castaway’ and wanted to pick up some of the concept behind the movie.

Grumpy living in the 2D dimension, is a lonely caveman who found a club and learns how to use it. He eventually learns to like it but due to some circumstances, he lost the club. As for the old man, Larry in the live-action world, is a lonely old man who found a phone and doesn’t know how to use it. So along the way he will learn to like the phone, however as time passes by, the owner of the phone calls and Larry eventually returns the phone.

In this film we hope to be able to show that even in a course more focused with visual effects and film, we are also able to come up with our own design and depend on our own critical thinking skills.

Biography
After completing my ‘O’ levels, I decided I wanted to get into the creative industry which I know it is where my passion lies. I loved drawing since I was a child and wanted to discover what I can with a little more knowledge with the help of my peers and lecturers.

During my education days in secondary school, I have always wanted to venture myself into art because I feel that is where I belong. However, there were not many opportunities and that was the reason why I decided to join a polytechnic to understand film and design. I would love to get into a design field in future and be able to open my own label, be it fashion or in a design industry. I am always inspired by artists all around the world, and one day I hope it will be my turn to inspire others.

During my free time, I love to draw, do some hand lettering and view the internet to see how people come out with graphical ideas and how they execute it well. I always believe the most important part in designing is enjoying the process. Therefore, I genuinely hope I will be able to venture into craft, branding and design in a healthy work environment in future.

During internship, I also had the chance to go on an overseas trip with my company, Night Owl Cinematics to work on a travelogue in Australia. Throughout all these experiences, I have definitely learnt and gained a lot of experiences which I have never thought I would. Moreover, never regretted a single choice made to become who I am today.

Sem; Description-

Alice, who is suffering from depression, feels that her life is going downhill. She convinces her best friend, Celia, to help her attempt suicide. The attempts fail as Celia foils them at the last moment. When Alice finally decides to jump off the roof, Celia stops her. It is then revealed that Celia is merely a figment of the girl’s imagination. Alice represents the suicidal thoughts in one’s head when driven by depression whereas Celia represents the part of you that wants to keep on living. At the end of the film, Alice realizes that all the while, there’s a part of her that still wants to keep fighting on, which is why she imagined Celia to be real.

The major reason why I decided to make this film is due to my personal experience with depression and suicide. The purpose of this film is to spread the understanding of what goes through the head of someone who is depressed and suicidal so that people can relate to and help others who are suffering from it. Even though there is no certain cure for depression, I believe that empathy is a great help in helping and guiding the person out of it.

Biography
“Let me be not so vain to think that I’m the sole author of my victories and a victim of my defeats.” – Ze Frank

Upon completing his O’Levels, Syamil, better known as Sya, was adamant in wanting to enter a polytechnic instead of a JC even though he could pick the latter. Many little factors contributed to his decision in joining this course namely a friend who was applying for this course as well as knowing someone who was one year his senior there. In all honesty, he didn’t find his passion or calling during his first 2 years, merely working on assignments, doing more than what was expected just to challenge himself and find his limits in post-production.

When he started his third year with an internship in Big 3 Productions, he realized his heart belonged to production and in the bigger picture, he was passionate in creating works of his own. Throughout his 3 years, he has taken the role of director for almost every assignment and being able to learn the tough process and skills of production was the most useful thing he has obtained throughout his time in this course.

Shortly after his internship ended, Syamil brought together a group of friends who shared the same passion as him in creating works of their own, forming their own YouTube channel and taking part in film competitions. They are now known as, Killerwhale Productions.

Strengths/Interests
Syamil personally feels that he works better under pressure as he takes difficulties as challenges for him to overcome. Aside from technical skills in softwares that he has picked up within the course, he is able to step up to the role of being a leader and guiding his peers in tackling a project.

His interests would be in film and dance. He is a member of Strictly Dance Zone, SP’s dance CCA and has performed at venues such as Kallang Theatre and The Esplanade during his two years there.

Parallel Description-

Description

Parallel is a crime short film about an investigator,Ryan, who goes around solving trying to solve a series of interconnected murders with this trustworthy partner, Alex. As they delve further into the crimes, Ryan starts to find out something terrifying about himself which leads to his downfall. The short film was inspired by the korean movie, “killer Toon”. Initially, the short film was supposed to come out as a serious crime horror genre but it was later revised and adapted into a comedy version inspired by Edgar Wright movies. Some of the techniques we applied to the script was the use of visual comedy. We had problems with the comedy parts as what looked good on the script might not turn out well on screen so we had to improvise a lot using editing.

Executing a crime comedy film genre wasn’t easy since audience might have different sense of humour. Hence, we had to polish the script countless time with the help of our friends and lecturers. ‘Hot Fuzz’ was one of the film that we can refer to. The way Edgar Wright shot his film is very unique. Not only his story that is funny but the way he shot it. We did try to execute his way of filming but it wasn’t easy as it seems.

After the script was set, we announced the casting call. We had quite number of entries. Some of them was great at the acting, unfortunately they don’t possess the look of the character which was important. We did face hard time to select the suitable cast since most of them are unique on their own way.

After watching the movie ‘Terminator’ and ‘The Mask’ at a young age, her curiosity in filming has turned to an interest. In her secondary school years, she was in a Media Club CCA where she learnt AV, filming and photography. From there, she knew there’s more capability than just normal filming. When watching movies such as ‘Harry Potter’, she’s always curious on how were they able to pull of those shots. And that’s where her interest in Visual Effects grew.

In her second year, she was given the opportunity to be part of the Halloween Horror Nights 4 to participate in the effects departments. Less than a month participating as a makeup artist, she has taken more interest in Special Effects make-up.

In her third year, she was appointed in the IMAGINA team of Singapore Polytechnic, working on projects of external clients. Projects such as The Star Vista’s Project Celebrate Acapella Music Video and working on cooperate video for TEE Pte Ltd.

Biography
I have always been interested in the Media Industry ever since I was in Secondary School. I told myself I must learn Motion Graphics after being inspired by the internet so I was really quite disappointed when I got back my N level results because I failed to advance to Secondary 5. By then I knew I had to take the longer route to learn what I really wanted to learn.

I took a design course in ITE because I knew a good design base is needed if I want to do something related to graphics design in the future.

The biggest and the best thing to have happened to me throughout all 3 years of my polytechnic life would be my internship in The Walt Disney Company. Being able to intern in such a huge company is definitely a really good learning experience.

Etched Description-

Our original story was about a young man who had chanced upon a mysterious journal at a thrift store. He finds himself inexplicably drawn to the journal and he promptly purchases it. He goes home, settles down and immediately proceeds to start writing in the book. To his surprise, the book reveals that it has a life of its own by giving replies to his words. He is at once both apprehensive and astonished. The young man decides to share more about himself to the book, to the point of pouring out all that he is; his life, his struggles, his petty complaints. As the young man’s relationship with the book grows more intimate, he does not cease his writing, thereby spending an entire day at his desk. He decides to ask one final question before he turns in for the night: “When will I die?” One word appears with finality: “Now.” The film ends with an ambiguity about the man’s fate, though through editing it is strongly suggested that he does die at that moment.

A main challenge for our group was the finalization of the details in story and character.

During the entire process, we made major changes to parts of the script. Such changes were the result of continuous discussions and consultations with our supervisor, Jeff. An example of this is in our film’s planned ending. The initial idea was for the man to quietly succumb to the book’s “hidden power.” However, this was deemed too vague, and our short film needed more dramatic flair as we didn’t have the screen time to explain this “magical death”. Our supervisor, Jeff suggested an idea in which the man destroys the journal with fire. It is a very visually arresting ending, due to the fact that most of the film the man has been treating the book like a precious friend. Our protagonist himself has changed. Originally a young student, he was changed into a habitual hoarder; hence we have decided to select a close-to-middle-aged adult, around his late 30s – 40s. Since we have decided to only have one principal cast member for this film, his performance and aesthetics will play a vital role to our film.

“Etched” is about a habitual hoarder who discovers a mysterious journal, which apparently appears to be alive. It soon establishes a relationship with this man. Whether this relationship is beneficial, however, remains to be seen, as the book reveals a more sinister tone between its pages.

The main character, Dan, finds a book in one of his boxes of hoarded goods. In his curiosity, he decided to pen something down on it, and the book replies him, to his surprise. The book then appears to have powers which allow it to predict things such as the winning prize number for the lottery and minor events in his life, such as his phone ringing. He starts getting intrigued by the book and soon, the book starts to speak in a darker tone, trying to help him realize his meaningless lifestyle. Dan is taken aback and he attempts to justify himself, to no avail. The book’s straightforward nature finally crumbles Dan’s fragile self-esteem and thus opens him to wrath. In his rage, Dan burns the book and disposes of the remains. As Dan calms down, he despairs at the loss of his confidante.


Ng Ting Fai Randey+

Biography
Ever since the young age, I had the vision and dreams to be part of anything that revolves around the diverse world of art.

I’ve always been a rather quiet person. Growing up with the passion for music, I slowly grew to enjoy visual storytelling as well. Sometimes at some point of your life it hits you; in which cinematography took a heavy interest in me. I love how cinema is able to capture the various moments, emotions that perhaps, isn’t always something seen towards the reality of which we live in. I hope to be able to create moments like these, so as to express the feelings that I may not be able to portray on my own. That is probably one of cinema’s greatest magic.

I had the privilege to have my internship at R!OT, in which I was given the opportunity to work on proper motion graphics projects, and that was where I really realized my love for film making.

Biography
I have been a longtime fan of the “big three” of modern film franchises: Harry Potter, Star Wars and the Lord of the Rings. I remember watching their component installments over and over, so much until I could even memorize the scripting of entire scenes. There was indeed magic in movies, and a couple of stellar television shows like Prison Break and Band of Brothers sealed the deal for my interest and passion for film.

I thought it would be unrealistic to pursue a career in the film industry in Singapore; after all, I was convinced that you had to know the big-name celebrities in order to get into the business. As I went through secondary school, however, I realised after some research that there are venues in which you can learn filmmaking, and that the behind-the-scenes area of films are the largest component of the entire business. I like the idea; to be part of a deceptively quiet team that puts in their best work to make great films.

My three years in Singapore Polytechnic studying visual effects and motion graphics has taken me through several experiences which I feel have changed me for the better. One of the most interesting ones was doing make-up for Universal Studios Singapore’s Halloween Event in 2014. Make-up in itself is an important part of filmmaking, as our characters had to look the part in order for the story to sell well. Another memorable phase was our internship period, for this was a crucible of sorts, where we could put our skills to good use in the real world. I interned at ThreeSixZero Productions, a studio which specializes in info-tainment documentaries. My work there included motion graphics, and my effort was rewarded when I proudly beheld my work on live television. I learnt some skills in regards to working in a television studio; time is always of the essence, and some flexibility must be had in order for results to be accomplished.

I realized that I would like to write stories, and this tied well with my vision for filmmaking. A well written story, in my opinion, can really be the strong bedrock of any good film. Thus, scriptwriting would be an ideal path.

My greatest test was the Final Year Project. Me and my friends had to construct a film all on our own, and it had to be a fitting swansong to our years here in SP. Our director, Randey, tasked me with translating his idea into a working script. It was a good experience doing so, as I had to continuously revise it, due to changing circumstances in the planning process. All in all, we followed the script as close as possible, which for me, is a satisfying goal.

My dream is to write scripts for film which I want to watch; to evoke the same sense of awe, wonder, and timeless meaningfulness which has held me captive to the joy of movies since my childhood.

Biography
I first found my passion for videos during secondary school. Back then my friends and I started dancing and we would record ourselves, edit it and upload it online. I realised I actually really liked editing videos/taking video. Hence after my O’ levels, I went to look for a course that specialise in video editing instead of joining a JC. I figured I would enjoy working in the future doing something I love. And that’s how I ended up in Visual effects and Motion Graphics.

I am very carefree person. I will try my best not to stress myself out when I’m doing as I hate being stressed/feeling stress. But I am responsible of my work when I need to. Also I am very focus at my work when I’m doing something challenging. It’s good to challenge myself from time to time.

When I was working at my internship company, they use to call me the “Best intern” As I always finished my work quicker than anyone else. So I guess you could call me “Gan Chiong spider”?

Epilogue Description-

‘Epilogue’ is a short film about a man trying to escape his inevitable end. The way in which it is presented is intentionally vague, so as to induce a sense of curiosity and mystery, as well as to allow the audience to use their imagination to fill in the gaps, making the experience a whole lot more personal.

Synopsis: Henry wakes up in the early morning, trapped in his own home and unable to remember recent events. Beside him lies a mysterious book, which seemingly responds to his unasked questions, yet brings forth even more confusion with each answer it provides.

The story behind our short film has gone through much discussion, and the final video is the result of countless revisions and fine-tuning.
Two notable changes were the location and time of the day. From the office in the day, to Henry’s home in the night. The reason for making these changes is to cut off all contact Henry has with the outside world, as everyone is still asleep.

The main goal during our conceptualization was to figure out how to slowly drop hints and reveal some answers while opening up even more questions, in order to heighten the suspense and mystery of our film.

Another key point we took note of was to focus on building our main character’s personality and traits. It is important for the audience to be able to relate to our character and empathise with him, as this allows them to feel more connected to our film.

We also had to discard some ideas due to loopholes and figure out how to pace the film, to control the mood and overall feel of the film, as well as to keep to our designated film length.

Throughout the entire process, Lynus, our supervisor, has been a tremendous help. Without him, our short film would not have turned out the way it did. As such, we would like to thank him for his continuous guidance and support.

Biography
As a foreign student studying in Singapore, I felt stressed but I enjoyed the experiences. The stressful part was that English wasn’t my first language and I was staying in Singapore alone without any family members. The part I enjoyed was that I have the chance to study in a different country, learn different cultures and meet people of different races.

I stayed in Singapore for almost 8 years and I have fully grasped the life skills and I did not allow my communication skills to hinder me. I have enough life and work experiences.

After my “N” Level exams, I decided to study in ITE College East under the Digital Audio & Video Production course and this was where my dream began. I love watching movies. In my opinions, I find that movies have a lot of meaning in them. They are able to give inspirations and encourage people to improve their lives. I also wanted to know more about the industry and to be able to produce films. Hence, after graduating as a 4 pointer from ITE, I continued my studies in Singapore Polytechnic under the course of Visual Effect and Motion Graphics to further pursue my studies.

My dream is to have an opportunity to work in Warner Bros’ Studio. I have my goal and I will do my best to fight for it. I enjoy working in the video production industry and I hope that after my retirement, I will be able to shoot a movie based on my own life story and encourage others that “All our dreams can come true, if we have the courage to pursue them. – Walt Disney”.

Si Hui+

Biography
Since young, I’ve been interested in filming and editing, though I wasn’t aware of what the processes were called back then. While on outings with family and friends, I would be the photographer/videographer. Later on, I would put those clips together in Windows Movie Maker and share the videos. The joy these little acts brought to me and the people around me was probably what propelled me in this direction.

After joining DVEMG, I’ve been learning how to use more complex softwares to generate better videos with advanced techniques. My interest has since expanded to other areas which were covered in the course of my study, such as lighting, rigging, scripting and compositing.

I also got the opportunity to join Disney as an intern, which has been a valuable experience for me. Not only did I pick up new technical skills, I also got to meet loads of friendly people – most were mentors, who were extremely patient in guiding me. This journey has helped to broaden my horizons, and will remain a strong reminder to me of why I chose to do what I do.

A (possibly ironic) quote I’d like to share would be, “Dreams are for the poor, I’m a realist.”

“If you ever have a project of your own, not only the final should look nice, the process also has to be nice and neat.”

This is what I had learnt the most during my internship, and I felt that it is also very important as a life lesson. Project some time will work with group of people, and it is best to keep our project neat and tight, so that the next person, or next time when we look back the project files, we can easily understand what’s going on.

After completing my ‘O’ Levels, I decided to do something that is art related, but not 100% all art. Thus, I choose Diploma in Visual Effects and Motion Graphics. Which inspired me to have new interest – 3D modelling. And in our Final Year Project, I’m the modeller in our group, and I really love my final work. And also hope to do it more as casual in future.

Dubst3p Guns Description-

When thinking of making an FYP video, we thought of ways to make a story that uses visual effects, as that’s what we’ve been studying for the past three years. I’ve been a fan of CorridorDigital and Freddiew for quite some time and when CorridorDigital uploaded the short film ‘Dubstep Guns’, I was amazed at how they were able to make music visually come to life with the power of lasers.

A lot of ideas were poured into this short film, trying to make it as dynamic as possible. We originally wanted to use free music from YouTube but it turned out that we had to collaborate with the DMAT students. It was an interesting collaboration as I was quite surprised one group managed to create a Dubstep genre of music.

Dubst3p Guns is simply the third part of an unseries video where the you are able to use the power of beats and bass to your advantage. The main character, who is not named, enters an alternate reality through the power of Dubstep caused by the glitch in her laptop. Running away from masked figures, she stumbles upon the famous Dubstep Gun. With panic, she fires it, disintegrating her pursuers. She’s not the only one that’s capable of attacking with sick beats as the only way to escape the alternate reality is to defeat a boss. He, who is also not named, has the power to stop her in her tracks. Thanks to a motivational poster that caught the main character’s eyes, it gave her the strength to push past the limits of her mind.

Dubst3p Guns is a short film that tells people to not just imagine the things that you want to do, be it creatively or logically. One has to create the things in order to progress. Dreams are meant to wake you up. It also subliminally tells the viewers that music can alter one’s imagination, one’s view in life. Music is powerful.

We would like to thank all our casts for being patient with us as we did our best to shoot the short film, to our FYP Lecturer, Christian James and to the fellow group mates who made it possible with all of their effort to the very end.

“An imaginative, lonely student enters an alternate reality, where music is power. Entities that materializes are hostiles. To escape, she has to battle his way out using the power of heavy electronic beats”

Biography
Ever since young, I have always enjoyed watching television shows, films, movies and commercials. I love how the stories are told with such intensity. The visual effects, the camera shots and the way these draw the attention of others. Hence, this gave me a huge interest in working in the media industry, especially on the side of making commercials.

When I completed my “O” levels, I decided that I would enroll in a Polytechnic. Being tired of studying and memorising notes, I made the choice to get into a media course to learn more about the media industry. There were plenty of media courses all around but I have decided to take a more creative step and enrolled in the Diploma of Visual Effects and Motion Graphics (DVEMG). Through this course, I have learnt and practiced the different stages of a video production. Being able to plan, shoot and edit my own film are definitely the skills I needed to pursue my goal. Most importantly, I enjoy my time studying in this course.

My plans after my National Service would be either to start working in the media industry or further my studies in media. By starting to work, I will be able to gain more experience and practical skills and that will also help me to build my portfolio. I personally believe that experience excel in the media industry as compared to studying. However, getting a degree also seems to be what some people look for nowadays.

Strengths/Interests

  • Experienced in working on a live production
  • Experienced in leadership roles and positions
  • Jack of all trades
  • Enjoys working with fresh content
  • Enjoys learning new stuff
  • Enjoy solving problems
  • Able to socialise very well with others

Aaron Luke Rozells+

Biography
I found myself interested in Visual Effects at a very young age from movies like the original Star Wars trilogies. Seeing impossible characters and landscapes come to life in those movies has made me aspire to become a visual effects artist. I fell in love with how well visual effects has integrated into modern media and from then on, I made it my dream to work in the media industry.

Unfortunately, I did not do well for my “O” levels. However, I was not going to let that deter me from achieving my dream. I went in to ITE to pursue my Nitec in Multimedia Technology and although I’ve learnt the fundamental aspects of the various software, I found myself craving to learn more. I pushed myself hard to get me into a Polytechnic and I was elated when I managed to get into DVEMG. I was one step closer to achieving my dream and I have learnt many valuable skills from the course. These skills include the entire Video Production pipeline from Pre-Production all the way to the Post-Production stages. I have had an extremely enjoyable time in this course and I truly appreciate the skills taught to me during this stage of my academic journey.

Working with The Moving Images Company for my internship programme has helped me improve my skills in Motion Graphics and Video Editing.

Once I have completed National Service, I hope to enrol in a University to improve myself, especially in areas such as compositing and shot aesthetics. I would give my absolute best to chase that dream of hopefully becoming a true visual effects artist.

Strengths/Interests

  • Plays video games
  • Practices compositing/effects during free time
  • Likes discovering new things, such as techniques to carry out certain effects
  • Interest in Mixed Martial Arts
  • Star Wars fan 😀

Aeterni Description-

‘Aeterni’ is a science-fiction themed short film. Our goal was to create a film that is filled with stunning visuals, action and yet challenge us with thought-provoking questions that would resonate within us. Thus, we have written a story that focuses on these key aspects.

Our film questions and explores the theme of “Existentialism” – what it means to be an individual existing being with freedom and choice, and what it means to make rational decisions despite existing in an irrational universe.

LOGLINE:
Faced with a dark revelation, a man must make a choice to choose between his humanity or his life.

SYNOPSIS:
The main character wakes up to unfamiliar surroundings, filled with unanswered questions and remembering nothing. Approached by an A.I Drone, the truth is revealed to him and the main character finds himself in a bleak and dark future. The main character is forced to accept the truth. Or does he have a choice?

OUTLINE:
The film begins with the main character regaining consciousness in an empty, dark room. He finds his arm chained up, unable to leave. An A.I drone approaches him and reveals the chilling truth that lands the main character in a bleak and dark future. As the drone lets him out of the room, he finds the world he once knew has ceased to exist. Unable to accept the truth, he is forced into a predicament.

Lim Yue Qun+

Biography
To be honest, I didn’t really expect myself to be learning skills in this industry. It all started in secondary 3 when me and my friends were bored and didn’t feel like studying and we just made random videos (which are funny to me) with simple effects like fire and smoke. We even had our own channel “JRDYproductions” on youtube. So then it came to secondary 4 when I started thinking about what am I going to study after I graduate from secondary school. I came across DVEMG through SP’s website and decided to just take a look at what the course could offer. I was still considering if I should go to an engineering course but I thought hey, why not try something different?

Through my 3 years in this course, I developed interest and passion in this industry. With my group of friends who share the same passion as me, we formed a team of hardworking people who would go the extra mile to do our own short films and take part in competitions to challenge ourselves to improve.

As I have learnt many things in post-production, I decided to try out more production for my internship and since then I had developed an interest to be in production. I’m still currently trying to find out what works best for me in this industry. From a production assistant, to a junior grip, to a camera assistant and one day hopefully to become a producer. I’m sure there is still time to discover what I really want to be and to give my all in my internship and learn as much as I can from the professionals.

Biography
Back when I was in secondary school, I was active in parkour and martial arts tricking. After some time, I decided to make a sampler of my tricks but had absolutely zero idea how to edit videos, hence I ended up using phone apps to edit. After playing around I found it interesting and decided to find out more about editing, which led me to watching short films and videos online. Film definitely caught my eye then.

I went to Singapore Polytechnic’s open house and discovered this course, Visual Effects and Motion Graphics. I was told more about it and found it intriguing and after much consideration I decided to join this course in hopes that it would allow my film-making dreams to blossom.

Initially in Year 1 and 2, I was obsessed with editing and doing visual effects (the Michael Bay kind) but after some time in my final year, I gravitated a little more towards the production side, however, still keeping that fire for doing visual effects.

My group of friends in this course who share a similar passion for film-making decided to come together and form a team called “Killerwhale Productions”, with the aim of making our own short films and taking part in competitions, ultimately pursuing our passion. We took part in the 48-hour Film Project (Singapore) and won the Best Use of Character award.

I aim to gain more experience and improving my skills as a grip, camera operator/assistant and ultimately a Director of Photography in future.

“Be fearless in the pursuit of what sets your soul on fire.”

For this short film, I was the Director of Photography as well as the Visual Effects Artist for the destruction scenes.

I could not have asked for a better team, I love you guys.

Biography
After completing my ‘O’ levels, I had no idea what course did I want to take up in polytechnic. So I went to Singapore Polytechnic’s website and was browsing through the courses and this course got my attention.

And as my o’levels points weren’t enough to get into this course, I applied for special admission to this course and I had to go through an interview. And yup, I got accepted.

So after joining this course, I had no idea what I wanted to do after graduation, until we started a module – Special Effects Makeup. The moment I got introduced to that, I knew that this was my interest. Since then, I have been very interested in Special Effects Makeup and Beauty Makeup.

After graduation, I would like to pursue further studies overseas or take up suitable courses to improve my current skill set in Special Effects Makeup and Beauty Makeup.
