Success Delivered at Sasaran Art Festival Short Film Contest
Updated 2012-01-16
In conjunction with Sasaran International Arts Festival, Sasaran Art Association has organised a short film competition with the objective to promote homegrown creativity among talented film makers by encouraging them to create short films that will outstand in the national competition and raise social awareness.

A group of young multimedia designers from The One Academy participated in the competition and triumph their way to second place and finalist respectively. Koh Liang Sheng, Steven Chuah, Chang Xin Zhe with team mate Chin Kuang Wei submitted their final year project short film 'Break up Deliverer' and received RM1,500 cash prize for their winning effort while 'Occasions' with team mates Redmond Ho and Low Ooi Teik secured a finalist spot and was awarded 'Excellent Film Award' title with RM300 cash prize.

According to the team that worked on 'Break up Deliverer', the short film tells a story about a young man who is assigned a job to deliver break-up messages. Throughout the process, he realised that sometimes love needs a 'break' in order to see how much one partner cared for another. As for the short film 'Occasions', it took the team about 3 weeks to complete and was centred on the life of a young man who goes about his monotonous daily life until he met a girl that made his life interesting. The underlying message is simple, suggesting that how it's the little things in life that make life happen and that humans should appreciate every minute of their lives.

Throughout the making of film and participating in the event, the team learned about other competitors' work as well as understanding different shooting styles, approach and story that added their knowledge to filming. Studying at The One Academy has open up a path towards their future career. "The knowledge we learned and the skills we were trained here have provided us the opportunity to meet with other creative industry people, exchanging opinions and give birth to ideas and inspiration that will make our work better and improved."
