Mission Easy’s pilot workshop is to create a film with the theme “Love” which is currently in production. The entire movie consists of 10 short stories of which six have already been shot. Each of the 10 short films will be sponsored by an individual company. Originally there were only six films scheduled to be completed but due to the overwhelming response, we have decided to add on 4 more to make up the total of 10 short films.
The duration of each short is 10 to 15 minutes, will consist of an individual story written by a professional script writer and will feature the product of the sponsor. After completion, the movie will be shown in certain shopping malls, movie theatres and other public areas (FOC) as well as on ECTV internet TV and will be entered to take part in select international films festivals. We have also managed to team up with the magazine ”Exquisite” to feature Mission Easy and the sponsors in the upcoming July/August copy.
We are in the midst of preparing a press conference that will generate the next big wave of publicity and hope to enlist the support of local artists, celebrities and personalities in this project and to set a new record for our media industry. This is a great way to bring the local arts and media community together with the ectv.sg platform.
Most importantly, this project has generated ample positive feedback and has been successful in fulfilling the dreams of young and budding talents who have never had the opportunity to be on a set, much less write, act, direct and even star in their own film!
