WATCH: Woo Ming Jin's 2005 short film CATCHING THE SEA

Image
Once again I've been restoring and uploading some of the old short films that Ming Jin and I had made over the past decade onto the Greenlight Pictures Youtube channel. My latest upload is Ming Jin's 2005 short film CATCHING THE SEA, which stars Pete Teo and Liew Seng Tat and served as a precursor (or spin-off) for his feature film THE ELEPHANT AND THE SEA.

Treasure trove of Andrei Tarkovsky videos

Recently, as I was finishing up a making-of documentary that I was working on in the past few months, I decided to do some research on other great making-of documentaries. It's always great to seek inspiration from the masters, and I was also thinking of an Andrei Tarkovsky documentary that I watched on Youtube a year or two ago, Directed by Andrei Tarkovsky . Thanks to Cinephilia & Beyond's comprehensive article on documentaries of Andrei Tarkovsky , I learnt of a great Youtube channel which had uploaded some really great Tarkovsky interviews and documentaries.

AFTERNOON RIVER, EVENING SKY, my 2010 short film

Image
The past few weeks I've been uploading some of the older films, shorts and telemovies that Ming Jin and I had done over the past decade on the Greenlight Pictures Youtube channel . Last night I've uploaded AFTERNOON RIVER, EVENING SKY. I made this short film in 2009. Because it had the misfortune of being made between my (relatively more high-profiled short films) KINGYO and the INHALATION/ EXHALATION pair, this short (along with a few others I made within those few months) kinda got lost in the shuffle.

Singaporean premiere of Woo Ming Jin's RETURN TO NOSTALGIA

Aside from The Second Life of Thieves now being available for viewing at FilmDoo , Woo Ming Jin's latest work, the documentary, Return to Nostalgia (which I executive produced and did the colour grading) The 55-minute film will be having its Singapore premiere on 30th June, 7:30pm as part of the Singapore International Festival of Arts . Screening will be held at The Projector! Apply for a pass (so you can catch all screenings at the festival) or buy a single ticket here : In fact, the version screened in Singapore will actually be a brand new version of the film. As I start to understand more on how to use Da Vinci Resolve during the past few weeks for colour grading, I decided to take his film and rework it again, being not too happy with its look in its previous iterations. It was good practice, and I regret a little that I didn't know how to use Da Vinci Resolve earlier. SYNOPSIS: Filmmaker Woo Ming Jin and his crew travel across the peninsula of Malaysia and Singap
