Singaporean producer wins Bafta award for Best British short animation

Singapore, although not particularly well-known for its film industry, does have a few commendable works. From Jack Neo’s “Ah Boys to Men” series and Anthony Chen’s “Ilo Ilo”, we can boast about our achievements.

Now, Singaporeans have another film to be proud of. Introducing…

Poles Apart

This is a 12-minute film, about a polar and a grizzly bear brought together by their changing habitat, was the graduation project of 10 students from the United Kingdom’s National Film and Television School (NFTS).

Singaporean producer Low Ser En won a British Academy of Film and Television Arts (Bafta) award for best British short animation with this stop-motion Poles Apart.

Here’s a trailer:

It is not available in Singapore yet though…but there are plans to make it available on Vimeo for Singaporeans to watch it.

Hopefully, this is the start of a better future for Singapore’s film industry.
