It is 3.48am here. I’ve just finished FaceTiming the boyfriend, snuggled up in bed and watched Confessions of a Shopaholic (It’s probably my 5th time watching this). I realise I have 5 weeks left at NYU, and I’m feeling really excited for what’s to come. I’ve got 2 more short films to make, and a script to write, and I’m going to make the most out of my remaining time here.
I’ve just screened my third short film in class, and I still get the jitters. This was a special project to me, because I made this with my amazing, talented friends from SG & we had so much fun filming this during spring break. We even had a mini sleepover party after filming (also because Snowstorm Stella hit NYC so we were trapped). This is a film directed by me, starring Arathi & Hakeem, & shot by Jieying.

The prompt for this was ‘soft light’, so I basically had to shoot indoors and play with diffused lighting. Preparing for this made me realise how beautiful the lighting along the stairwell in my apartment building was, so I knew I wanted to incorporate that somehow. Plus, it was really nice to film something indoors for a change.
I’m putting together a short behind-the-scenes video too, hehe so that will be up soon next week. If you’ve got any comments, please feel free to text me I’d love to hear from you.
