This space has been dead for awhile and it could finally use some good news.

My latest short film “Severance” is in competition and will be screening at this year’s Singapore International Film Festival 2014.

For more details:

I would like to take this opportunity to say a big thank you to all the cast Kelvin John Lim, Tan Shou Chen, Gerald Chew and Sharon Liew. And the production team; Lim Teck Siang, Lincoln Chia, Ah Huat, Kexing, Goh Kunlei, Coco Low and many more for making this happen:-) 

(Not forgetting the sexy voice of Jeffrey Low and Tony Law for planting the seed in my head to start this off.)

Thank you every one:-)
