Fashion photographer Lenne Chai spent the last nine months producing and directing a sci-fi music video for musician Charlie Lim. It is Lenne’s third ever music video, and also the most ambitious so far …

“The video is a collaborative pro-bono project featuring the work from Lim Qi Xuan (alien designer), Tina Fung (set designer) and whitehorsegrey (illustrations). The video is inspired by moon landing conspiracies and celebrity culture, where Charlie plays a hapless “astronaut” directed by aliens.”

Spotted! Stanley Xu Ruiyang

Introducing 22-year-old Stanley Xu Ruiyang, a Ngee Ann Polytechnic graduate with a Diploma in Film, Sound and Video. “My journey in moving images started when I was 15. I was watching an NBA highlight video on my PSP, and was amazed at how the combination of visuals and music could get me so excited. I started to learn video editing using the internet. I then went on to study Digital Audio at Video Production at ITE College East and I completed my Diploma in Film, Sound and Video at Ngee Ann Polytechnic.”

Intrigued by family dynamics and inspired by Japanese philosophy and aesthetics, Stanley concentrates on “exploring the depth of the human condition from an objective perspective, with subtle and unobtrusive beauty. Reflecting on the universal truth about our existence, the sad yet beautiful transience of life.” 

In 2015, he directed his first short titled “BLK 401” for the ciNE65 III short film competition. “The film was nominated for multiple categories including Best Film and Audience Favourite. I eventually received the Best Editing award in the student category.”

Soon after, he directed two more films, Mother and Lullaby“Mother was part of the Temasek 20/20 Short Film Project in collaboration with mm2 entertainment, which premiered at the 20th Vancouver Asian Film Festival and was selected to compete at the 22nd Caminhos Film Festival in Portugal. I made Lullaby in collaboration with Honour Singapore as part of a school project when I was at Ngee Ann Polytechnic. The film toured several international film festivals, including the 36th Hawaii International Film Festival, and was selected to compete at the 4th SalaMindanaw Asian Film Festival.”
