Scene City: Singapore.

August 20, 2009

Scene CitySo I had my ’5mins of fame’ on the tele last night, in a Channel News Asia program – Scene City Singapore.

I twittered a bit about it and I was prepared to come across as the blur block that I am. And it was surreal watching myself on air – ‘Is my nose really that big? Wow, my voice is so high pitched.’ But after catching it last night I thought it was well produced and pretty fresh and I’m looking forward to catching the other episodes in the upcoming weeks.

The program is hosted by UK-based photographer and writer of many photography books – Tom Ang. Tom was really humble, warm, had a real great sense of humor and from what I understand from the crew, has great appreciation for our local food. And both on and off camera, he was willing and open to sharing his knowledge and experience.

The series was filmed earlier this year and provided me access to places that little or no one else would ever have. I appreciated that not many others would have had the opportunity to have been able to document the construction sites from within, of what would become the Sentosa Integrated Resort and the new School of the Arts (SOTA) compounds. And when I stood on top of the IR building, on a platform that no men would ever step onto once it was completed, really put me in awe of the size of the project.

The crew were a delight to work with and made the tiring days at filming so enjoyable, it made me kinda miss production crew life. My episodes were directed by Beetle maniac Randy Ang and it was a pleasure to have met Anthony of Let There be Light photography who is a funny, funny man.
