    Question Neo Tiew Estate [Filming/Photographs][Please Advise ASAP]

    Hey,me and my bunch of 9-10 guys recently grouped together to make a film.
    Something to do with guns[Replicas used] Then cause we tried to film at a en-block in Clementi,but there were still many HDB flats that has residents.
    Cops patroling around pulled over and saw us,then approached us nicely about what we were doing,so i explained then they let us off.
    We needed somewhere abandoned,so i wanna take a chance at Neo Tiew Estate. I understand there's SAF using it for their trainings etc.
    Any tips when going there? Any Specific dates when to go and not to? Finally any other locations to be suggested?
    En-blocks,Abandoned schools,Abandoned flats ETC.
    Please Advise.

    Get a permit. I don't think that everyday's a sunday.

    You know that you're holding a fake weapon, but others won't.

    And btw, Neo Tiew should be off-limits. I don't know what the soldiers will do to you if they catch you there. If u want clarification, asl MINDEF. It's so easy to just pick up the phone and call them

    Thanks but do you have any suggestions of where to go for abandoned areas? I understand Singapore is small and really most abandoned buildings are under SLA,so it's tresspassing going those areas. Any tips or clue to go and whereas to get the permit?

    You already know where to get the permit... you said it yourself, SLA...

    Other than that, outside of SG.

    Try Old Changi Hospital at Changi Point if it's still accessible.

    Then SLA paper alone won't help. TS should also bring along other forms of "entry fees"

    Yup because too many photographers were flooding it for their abandoned building shoots

    Istana Woodneuk near Tyersall Road is still accessible. I went there a few months back but it seems like everyone has forgotten the place as the vegetation surrounding it is very thick and requires great effort to bash through. Do take note that entering this premises is at your own risk and I cannot assure you of your safety.

    Check out this doc: http://www.mda.gov.sg/Industry/Films...ming_2013.docx

    There's a list of locations in Appendix 1. One is "View Road Hospital", looks promising.

    I've just thought of another place which is a lot more easy to access will be the abandoned brunei hostel in tanglin area. Very easy to get to and can bring video equipment in without much hassle.

    Thank you so much for your help guys,It brings my group a step closer to gaining views and subs. We have spent thousands on military equipment and video equipment just for it.

    Neo Tiew estate is not fenced up. Go in if you want but do not get caught. You may try the abandoned flats near the german centre in jurong which is near teban gardens (went there a few months back.), first floor abandoned flats at dakota estate or the abandoned flats in Toa Payoh (near the dragon playground. A few first floor units have not been sealed yet.)
