Kerchil is unhappy that it is the year of the rat and not cat. Or he is unhappy and shy because I filmed him playing "soaking in bathtub."

恭喜发财,万事如意,身体健康。HUAT AH!

I hope everyone is well.
I had great plans when I started the circuit breaker. Learning this and that. Cooking this and that. After the 2nd week, I realised cooking is not such a great idea as weight gain n leftover food were a consequence.
Every thing was going at a slower pace. Need a lot more discipline staying home and being "productive". So much for my Japanese lessons revision. Lesson learnt.
But I did watch a bit more movies and picked up more film making, story writing tips and we (Team GT) managed to make 2 short film (for the mm2 contest).
Here's "The Unsound Mr Moon" which we made but did not submit. A 4 min short film.
I'll share the other 'Instant Noodles & Toilet Rolls' next time.
Thanks for watching. :cool:

In "The Unsound Mr Moon", Mr Moon "gazes long into an abyss, the abyss also gazes into you."
In the next short film made for the mm2 lovewithin short film contest, he gazes into the microwave oven, a drain hole and some form of sanity returns.

Here's "Instant Noodles and Toilet Rolls" celebrating the anxiety and comfort that these 2 items brought to some of us during the days of our Covid 19 lockdown.


The finalists and winners of the mm2 Lovewithin contest can be found in the below link. Tap on the Videos tab and you get to see all.

Besides the elections, the Nine emperor festival which started on Friday would have been another event that is a photographer's visual feast.
Here are some scenes of their arrival from a few years ago.

i had access to the living quarters of a HDB shophouse. The weathered look of the place gave me an opportunity to use the location for making a short film. I had one month before the new tenant moves in and that"s more then enough time to shoot!

Together with Patrick we made a short film "A New Beginning" for the Rode Reel 3 minute short film competition.

After that there was still time for another...

During the National Day weekend, Singapore Art Museum organised a 48Hr 3 minute short film contest "Home in Singapore 2020". Celebrating resilience, selflessness, kindness and national pride. It just released the entries on 30October.
Here are the selected entries available for viewing till 8Nov 2020.


Here's the unselected entry that will be available for as long as YouTube is around.
Cringe worthy.


Thanks Stephen! Keep safe too!
