submitted by New Pluto Tv on 06/09/18 1

On the occasion of the third season of ciNE65 - a short film competition organized by Nexus - director Bertrand Lee made this movie in which he revisits some fundamentals in contemporary Singapore, his take on peace and war. Tapping in on Shooting Gallery Asia's solid expertise in producing and shooting videos for the armed forces, he created this one-shot story. In appropriate fashion, our Singapore production team and crew brought one of their big guns to film the project, on home soil. CREDITS Director : Bertrand Lee Production : Shooting Gallery Asia (Singapore) Executive Producer : Chris Loo Producer : Joanne Zheng DOP : Joseph Lee Rigging : Rahman Offline : Gary Koay Grading & Online : Benny Wong SYNOPSIS The film is set in 2015, in a hypothetical scenario that Singapore finally finds itself at war after 50 years of uninterrupted peace. A young soldier boy’s thoughts are captured, as he is about to charge into battle, towards enemy fire. He goes through a plethora of emotions, from fear, to reminiscence, to realization, and finally, courage in the face of death.
