What Students/Alumni Say

Josiah Ng

FSV is a cutting-edge course that made me fall deeper in love with the transformative art of storytelling. It was here that I was introduced to not just the technical tools of making a film, but also the craft of navigating real-world issues with film and media. Through the holistic approach taken by the faculty members, my worldview expanded, and possibilities eventually unfolded for me in my career. This course is not just about making movies and content, it’s so much more.

Janice Chua

FSV gave me the tools to transform thoughts and ideas into moving images which was exhilarating for a wide-eyed teenager who had just graduated from secondary school. We watched movies, learned from them and then picked up the camera and made our own! It’s not only a school to receive an education, it’s a place where dreams can be realised.

MCM is a safe haven for creative and unconventional minds. It was the place where I discovered that creativity was incredibly powerful, especially if you attained the skills and craft to apply it in the real world. There is no better place to learn these skills, which has served me well throughout my advertising career, all around the world.

Content is king, and MCM rules! More than 20 years after graduation, I still benefit from the disciplines of content creation that I learnt in classes. The skills and techniques taught there are especially relevant in today’s digital age. With proper content, I get to push for real change through my television and film works. I am a better storyteller because of MCM.

Industry Review

Honour (Singapore) is happy to support the work of young and aspiring filmmakers from NP. I am both impressed and encouraged by how they have been able to imagine the practice of Honour in so many different situations in life. This shows their understanding and commitment in building a worthy future for themselves and for Singapore.

I’ve enjoyed working with the students from the Advanced Radio module for the last few years. Apart from their creativity, the broad-based training they’ve received also enables them to think beyond the radio show to consider different aspects, such as the marketing of the programme.

The students whom I worked with really exceeded expectations by constantly going out of their comfort zones to produce very interesting and high-quality podcasts. They showed maturity and courage in tackling challenging topics ranging from relationship abuse to the changes in society, and demonstrated keen understanding of the assignments.
