Event description
A WORKSHOP AND TALK ABOUT TURNING POEMS INTO SHORT FILMS, FOR BEGINNERS

About this Event

Join poet Stephanie Chan and filmmakers Nina Chabra and Fadzil as they talk about their journey of turning poems from Stephanie's book Roadkill for Beginners into a film! Be among the first to watch the poetry film 'An Intermediate Guide to Roadkill.' before it premieres online, and listen to their behind- the-scenes stories of the challenges and joys of creating it. Learn about the interconnected history of spoken word and internet videos. Understand how spoken word is changing in pandemic times. Learn how to translate emotions and memories behind a poem into moving images, how to capture the energy of a spoken word performance on film without diluting it. Learn the possibilities that emerge when poets collaborate with artists from various art forms, find new ways and get inspired! There will be a live Q&A at the end.

This project and event is supported by that National Arts Council of Singapore Digital Presentation Grant.

ABOUT THE SPEAKERS

STEPHANIE CHAN (Poet)

Stephanie Chan (also known as Stephanie Dogfoot) is an award-winning poet and stand up comedian who has performed her poetry all over the world, including tours of the US, Australia and Germany. She is constantly inspired by collaborating with other writers and artists. Her first poetry collection, Roadkill for Beginners, was published in 2019. At the end of 2020, she was awarded a Digital Presentation Grant from the National Arts Council of Singapore to produce a video based on several poems from the book.

NINA CHABRA (Producer, Production Manager & Director)

Storytelling has been an artery of her practice for the last 18 years. She has used various mediums to communicate her thoughts and style, with video being her oft-used tool.

She puts her camera and editing skills towards collaborating with any interested community in Singapore, in hopes of visually presenting lesser-known truths.

In the last decade, she has presented inter-disciplinary creative work and hopes to continue merging her lived truths with her craft.

From 2018, she has been on the programming team of Freedom Film Festival Singapore and has an ongoing collaborative video project with artist Tan Biyun, with the last street vendors of Singapore.

FADZIL (Videographer and Editor)

Fadzil found his passion for Singapore’s history and heritage while working in National Archives of Singapore. In those 6 years, he closely studied old photographs and film. He was assigned to a few memorable projects such as video documenting the political rallies of past elections, the closure of the Kallang Stadium and the development of Gardens by the Bay.

This led to him to deepen his interest in filmmaking and telling stories of the community. He took a leap of faith and left his full time job in the National Archives of Singapore to start his own video production company, The Videosmith in late 2012. He heavily invested his time in filming weddings and cultural events. In addition to that, he has also worked on corporate events such as Emtech Asia for Koelnmesse in 2017 and 2018 in Singapore and Hong Kong.
