Crowd-funding “The Three Sisters”

Films, News, Three Sisters

The Three Sisters - Teaser Poster







I didn’t manage to get the Singapore Film Commission’s short film grant for this film – but I really want to make this short film. Hence, I’m trying something new called “crowd-funding.” I guess it’s a fancy new word for “asking for donations.” However, here’s the fun part for people who pledge money to fund my new short film: you get perks! Be it a signed DVD, poster, screening tickets or creative input – it’s time you get something back! The numbers will be updated daily.


Over an evening of Chinese Opera at the theatre, the peacemaker of three sisters (in their seniority), Poh Sim, must survive a night with them, coming to terms that she loves her sisters but they also drive her mad.

Perks? What perks?
