The Ministry of Communications and Information has launched a new film series, Regardless Of, featuring films created by young Singaporeans, each less than five minutes long, on topics like transport and housing.
Six students, two each from Nanyang Technological University and the National University of Singapore, and one each from Ngee Ann Polytechnic and Temasek Polytechnic, were chosen after an open call last October.
Creative agency Tribal Worldwide Singapore and production firm MLC TV provided help.
“We were able to observe professionals… For example, how the sound man held the boom pole and mic’d up the talents,” said Temasek Poly student Ong Ren Wei, 20, who teamed up with NUS graduate Lan Yu, 25, for a short film about two families in a Build-To-Order block.
