Secondary students win film festival award

Recently three Year 12 students at Yew Chung International School of Shanghai each with different interests came together to write, produce and act in an entirely student created video production.

Siew Png started the project after being inspired at a student film festival at YCIS Beijing. He managed the script writing, video and post editing, as his classmate Cohen supplies voice acting and Andrew supplied and licensed the music for the film, while assisting in post-production work. The three students got support from YCIS Technical Coordinator Mr. Danny Davis in the use of the school’s recording studio to edit the voiceover content.

The students submitted their film “The Game” to the South China Film Festival, winning an award for the “Best in Editing” category. The film will also be submitted to upcoming film festivals, including Flux Film Festival in Beijing and the Hamilton Youth Festival.
