This is amazing. Just when I thought things are running cold for this work that has been traveling the festivals for more than a year already, I receive great news again that it recently won the Linda Mabalot New Directors/ New Visions Award at the 25th Los Angeles Asian Pacific Film Festival, 2009.

Once again I would like to thank the Jury for this honour. This is my first award from a non-asian country and I am glad to hear that people else where are enjoying “Wet Season” as much as they do in Singapore. Thank you all once again for this.

Read about the awards and the festival from here.

Awards Won by “WET SEASON” to date:

25th Los Angeles Asian Pacific Film Festival, 2009 –  Linda Mabalot New Directors/New Visions Award

12th Ismailia International Film Festival for Documentary & Short Films, 2008, Egypt – Best Film Prize in the Competition of Experimental Films.

3rd Jogja NETPAC Asian Film Festival, 2008, Indonesia – Best Short Film

21st Singapore International Film Festival, 2008, Singapore – Special Jury Prize

“RESPIRATOR” COMING SOON…

Posted in ANNOUNCEMENTS!!!, Short Films on May 13, 2009 by tayh0010

Okay! Okay! Ever since Wet Season, I kept getting a lot of people coming to me and asking about my next short film.

So now here is a sneak peak at my latest work, “Respirator”.

PS: Try watching this trailer on HD by clicking the HD icon at the lower screen of the video. The normal quality just sucks.

Synopsis:

“To save her 7 year old son from dying of a rare heart disease, a single mother undergoes a bizarre operation but recovers only to realize the terrifying consequences.”

From the look of things you guys can probably guess that this is very different from my previous works. It is also my longest short film to date. (Running at 19 mins)

Will be sending it out to festivals and will update you guys when it is screening. So keep a look out for it.
