48 hr Film Competition - Amy Yeo, an abused woman

Amy Yeo is an abused woman in the 48 hr film competition. She gets overworked by TV news stations and has to go through so many different guises. Well, I am not talking about a real person. I am talking about a character each of the 48 hr film competition teams must use in their 5 min film. The other must-have element is a pair of scissors.


The 48 hours film competition is really making the audience crack their heads in voting. Production values have gone up compared to the previous year. The teams come in sizes of 10 -15 in some. And hence, the hige audience support as seen here is wholly justified.


Before we bring you some of the reviews, here is an adulterated account of what a team went through.


"I was able to source and confirm a few talents 2-3 days before the event. .............................Friday,by 9pm, we had all gathered back in my office where a group of us gathered to brainstorm and write a story............................ We took pictures of our acting talents and used their mugshots for inspiration. .............................At around 2am, we got some sleep in the office and got ready to leave for our shoot at 9am in the morning............Saturday, we decided to do everything in one location.................................We needed some last minute extras and I managed to get my dad on board. Shooting continued for the whole day and finally concluded at 9pm at my flat. I then proceeded to do a rough cut of the film before sleeping at 4am..........Sunday, I had a team of 2-3 editors/post-production people including me ...............................By 6pm, my director finally finished his edit and we then had to down convert the footage from HD to SD. That unfortunately took us 1.5 hours and by the time we left the office for Tisch Asia (the drop off point) it was already 7:45pm...................We made it with 23 mins to spare and successfully dropped off the film."
