ShoutOUT! The Jacen Tan collection in a DVD now
Jacen Tan was the first to define 'viral video' among Singapore filmmakers with his internet hit 'Tak Giu' back in 2005. With his casual regular-boy sense of humour, 'Tak Giu' soon won the hearts of many Singaporeans who were new to local independent films. It also led to him being named as one of Singapore’s most exciting young filmmakers by The Straits Times Life!,
'Ballsy' Jacen Tan went to make other films in his own brand of humour that continued to enjoy a cult following. They included 'Zo Gang', 'Zo Peng', 'Zo Hee' and more recently 'Kwa Giu'. He creates scenarios all Singaporeans can relate to such as youths desperately trying to find a place to play football because they are banned from doing so at HDB void decks.
"Many people have been asking me whether my films are available on DVD. I'm excited to finally release this compilation of all my short films, packed with bonus features and unseen footage. I'm also proud to premiere my latest film Kwa Giu. Kwa Giu is my most important film yet, a documentary filmed at the now demolished National Stadium. With the recent announcement of Singapore's return to the Malaysia Cup, there has been massive interest in Singapore football. Kwa Giu will preserve those memories and the nostalgia of the legendary Kallang Roar." says Jacen Tan.
