hope renewed

This short film tells the true story of Mr Tan, a stroke survivor who was determined to make the most of his life against all odds.

When St Luke’s Hospital approached Bluesheep with the idea of the short film, we were hesitant, and yet excited. After all, this was the first short film we would produce – and coupled with a short timeline and an amateur cast, we wondered if it was a recipe for disaster (no offence to the cast!)

However, challenges abound in life and we were ready to put ourselves to the test. With an inspiring main character like Mr Tan, how could we allow our doubts to paralyse us when he had proven that paralysis was but a minor obstacle? And so, we began a journey of self-discovery. As they say, your greatest enemy is yourself. Once we acknowledged that we were our biggest critics, we set out to prove ourselves wrong – that we could, indeed, produce a film that would touch and inspire many.

Over a period of two days, we abandoned our defences and did our best to capture the essence of Mr Tan’s story – and we must say we were blown away by the result! Not only was the cast much better than expected (especially Mr Tan who was really convincing in his acting), we managed to finish the shoot with plenty of time to spare.

Editing the film seemed to be the biggest challenge for chief meh meh. With the deadline looming, we had to edit quickly and yet not let the film look cheesy or oversimplified. We really have to thank our awesome clients at St Luke’s for the encouragement and their trust in us! It spurred us on as we did not want to disappoint them or Mr Tan.

The film was completed and screened at the Dymon Asia – St Luke’s Appeal Luncheon on 22 August 2014, and then again at several other fundraising events organised by St Luke’s. The last we heard, Mr Tan’s story was well-received and many generous donors contributed to help clients like Mr Tan find dignity and regain independence. [:

To us, that is a job well done.

Crew: Shian Wen, Tanya, Sarah
