New Blood, Thick Blood for SINdie

We are proud to finally announce 2 new additions to the SINdie team! One is a film producer and lecturer while the other left behind a promising film career in India to explore the scene in Singapore. Please welcome Mabelyn Ow and Amarendra Bhosle! Here is more about Mabes and Amar (not to be pronounced like 'Ah Ma').

Mabelyn Ow

Mabelyn Ow has been an active contributor to Singapore's burgeoning film industry over the past 15 years. Starting as a production assistant on Army Daze, Mabelyn has gone on to work in various capacities in her career in film and television production. Over the course of her career, she has worked with and produced for some of the most significant and groundbreaking film directors in Singapore, notably Eric Khoo, Royston Tan, Djin Ong Jasmine Ng and Kelvin Tong. In addition, she has also produced documentaries for Discovery Networks Asia and National Geographic Channel. Her latest projects were Royston Tan's 12 Lotus (2008) and his short film Little Note (2009).

Aside from film production, Mabelyn's keen interest in our film industry saw her spend a few years volunteering as well as being a part of the Singapore International Film Festival Secretariat. She has now continued her pursuit of nurturing film production in Singapore by joining the Lasalle College of the Arts – The Puttnam School of Film as a part-time lecturer.

Amarendra Bhosle

Amarendra is a 22 year-old film student from Mumbai City, currently studying for a degree at La Salle College of the Arts. Singapore a strange attraction for him despite the colourful movie industry in India. ‘Amar’ graduated from Junior College in Science (Physics, Chemistry, Biology and Mathematics), then went to pursue a 1-yr diploma in Cinematography. Since his diploma, he has worked in Bollywood productions, TV series and ad films in India either as an Assistant Director or as an assistant cinematographer.


He’s also made a few independent films about social issues. To add another feather to his cap, he also composes and performs his own music. The films he is inspired by most, are films that advocate change and have a strong voice in them. That said, he can’t resist comedy and action genres as well. Enjoy his music here!
