Description:
TERA is a short Sci-Fi VFX sequence that collaborates both special effects makeup and VFX.

As a scientist, Amelia travels to distant planets in search of rare materials. As she lands on the last planet on her list, she came across an unusual life-form in a cave. As she tries to extract samples from the unusual life form, she was accidentally stung by its thorns. Despite this, she brought the sample back to her space lander. During the journey back to the Earth, the virus starts to infect her body and she transformed into an unusual creature which threatens the existence of her fellow human species.

By making this vfx sequence, we hope to apply what we have learned in this course about Visual Effects and Special Effects Makeup. We felt that we will get some experience from a project that is most relevant to the currently popular genre in the movie industry, Sci-Fi.

Brandon Ling (凌梓浩), is a vocalist who puts soul and passion above everything else, where his lyrics and compositions are always expected to be genuine & real. through personal experience, or inspiration adapted from details in every part of life (and the world), he fights with his art to voice his opinion and belief on all things.

growing up with a huge mandarin music influence, he has since grown to express himself in both english and chinese music.

TENDER溫柔: a track on the struggle of balancing between the white and black of a romantic connection. we tend to place our love status on higher priority over our personal well being, which can be a blessing in disguise, but question yourself again because you might just be firmly standing on a platform that is no longer there 很多時候,因為在愛情裡面 掌握著最重要的, 變得自己其實已經混亂了什麼叫做自己的快樂 什麼叫做委屈的悲傷;

CRIMINAL: respect comes above everything else in my world. and to be genuine, is a form of respect not only to the people around you, but to yourself. we often arise in war in spirit of what we believe in, but the moment we lie in contrast to what we stand up so strongly for, we become a criminal without an offence against the law.
it’s an offence to your own world, your own words;

It wasn’t until at age 16 after finishing his ‘O’ Levels that he decided to study music. It seemed like a stretch considering he didn’t have any prior music background, but he went ahead and pushed through with a passion to learn and excel. An aspiring songwriter, his goal is to write successful songs similar to world renowned artists today.

“With a Stare” is a pop song written in the perspective of a person who have been left in a broken relationship for long enough for hurt to completely take over them after it ended. Sang in an angsty or frustrated tone, the person openly speaks their mind and woes encountered while secretly hiding their depressed side.

“Identity” is an electronic song made exclusively with synthesizers. Inspired by retro gaming music, it is a call back to the gaming industry while in its way trying to become an electronic song to fit in the current generation of songs.

FRANK Account has a special function where customers can customize their savings goals (e.g. travel, education goals, business startup) and pre-set automatic transfer of money every desired time period into ‘savings jars’. With this unique feature, saving with FRANK becomes more convenient and we help customers achieve their goals effectively and efficiently.

Since 2011, FRANK has always been known to be the cool and funky brand that allows customers to customize their card designs. Till date, FRANK remains very well-known for its 120 card designs and only recognized as a regular account. The savings goals feature is our best kept secret and we need this unique feature to be more widely communicated.

This campaign targets millennials aged 16-29, who have started to gain financial independence. They know it’s important to save but what most of them are currently doing now is to use two different bank accounts – one for savings and one for spending. What they are not aware of is the FRANK Account can help them do both, all in one account. And they can even set and customise more than one savings goals at a time.

We want them to tap on the savings goals feature and eventually use FRANK as their primary bank account.

We want to prompt people to reflect on meaning of life. Many lessons can be drawn from such reflection.

In general, many people possess inaccurate or misleading information about death-related issues that might give rise to various insecurities. Also, many individuals do not have sufficient opportunity to examine their feelings about death in such a way that would permit them to come to terms with any discomfort or concerns they might have.

Simply put, death and dying are uncomfortable topics. Through this campaign, we wish to reduce the taboo on death and move people to view death as a normal part of life. By raising awareness of the issue, we would like to increase awareness on the importance of end-of-life preparation. We want to get people to reduce their anxiety with talking about the issues related to death and dying and equip them with ways to start the conversation if they wish to overcome the barrier on how to talk about death.

Biography
Jemma studied at Singapore Polytechnic’s Diploma in Music and Audio Technology(DMAT) from April 2015- April 2018. The course enabled her to learn skills such as musicianship, composition, recording and mixing and most importantly, producing. She composed a song “ 战。心。” and re-did a film as a sound designer and composer from a fellow Visual Effects and Motion Graphics (DVEMG) friend titled “Tattooed Heart” for her final year project.

“ 战。心。” was written in a small scale orchestra style where it’s strongly focused on the Chinese traditional instrument Guzheng. This is a seemingly technical piece and it talks about a warrior’s heart from before a war to the aftermath of the war.

“Tattooed Heart” is depicting a man living in denial over his lost love. The film was originally meant to be a silent film. Hence, Jemma decided to take this film and redid it from a different perspective.

Biography
Jesintha Paul had started to learn how to play the keyboard at the age of 7 at an in-house music school held in her church. At the age of 14, she started serving in the Worship Ministry as a keyboardist. After about 2 years, she started writing gospel songs during her personal prayer time.

During events and services in her church, Jesintha Paul guides and leads her fellow band members and directs them to follow her arrangements for the worship set. While taking in feedback, she tries her best to keep improving herself regardless.

“Let Me”, was written using only bible verses and rephrased a few of the verses to suit the melody and chord progression of the song.

“I was wrong”, was written to describe the pain of disappointment in losing someone dear to someone.

Biography
Because music has comforted me, I also want to use my music to comfort others; to let them know they’re not alone in how they feel and that things get better. I also want to use music to express my views and thoughts. Cheap Talk is a song about lies and people not saying what they want to or actually mean – whether it be with friends, family, lovers or even to yourself. Stuck is a song which describes the feelings and inner turmoils of a person who is in a pathetic state of mind. Hurting from, missing and loving someone who they shouldn’t; someone who did them wrong.
