Good evening readers, here is a quick round up of stories happening in the Singapore digital media and creative scene:
1. Hepmil Creators’ Network, the company overseeing SGAG, MGAG, PGAG and SGEEK, is offering its clients/ brands special ad space for its YouTube channels, known as Reserved Media. This comes about from a partnership with US-based digital media company, Bent Pixels.
2. Visual artist, Jahan Loh, known for his friendship with Mandopop king Jay Chou, has produced a pretty cool mural “splashed across Far East Square”. The mural is said to be “inspired by Chinese blue and white porcelain, landscape paintings from the Yuan Dynasty”.
3. Mark your calendars for the free broadcast of THE PITCH, a 20-minute short film, premiering on YouTube on 31 August (Monday) @ 9pm. Starring local theatre OGs Ivan Heng, Gaurav Kripalani and Adrian Pang, the film “cheekily raises the curtain on three theatre companies as they struggle to make art – and make peace! – with one another.”
