STOREYS – Film Initiative
July 26 - August 24
STOREYS is a new intitiative by Media agency CreativesAtWork and supported by the Infocomm Media Development Authority (“IMDA”) to discover, fund and promote independent content creators. While aiming to encourage content creators to create impactful stories to drive positive social change in Singapore.
Selected content creators will receive guidance from award-winning mentors, such as Nas Daily, vlogger and creator of popular video series Nas Daily; and Josiah Ng, Head of Film and Social Content at advertising firm DDB Group Singapore, in creating a video based on their chosen cause. IMDA will provide content creators with a six-month access to PIXEL1’s co-working space and production facilities, such as video and audio studios, film production equipment and editing software.
The completed videos will be shared online through social media, with the final eight story submissions selected based on panel evaluation and audience voting. The short film with the highest number of local views will receive funding to produce a second video. STOREYS aims to distribute these stories to global audiences, by submitting the videos to international film festivals.
Selection will take place from 24 to 31 August 2019. Mentorship and production will commence from September till December 2019. The final videos will be released from January 2020.
