Dining with

Oliver Stone Conversations with Tisch Asia

ALUMNI Tisch Asia’s Growing Family





hen the school year began in September, it was heartwarming and exciting to welcome talented students from around the world in our Film, Dramatic Writing, and Animation and Digital Arts programs. They continue the tradition.

Another group of pioneering graduate students arrived at Tisch School of the Arts Asia to study International Media Producing, the only comprehensive producing program that trains students to work across a variety of media platforms around the world. This groundbreaking program is yet another example that demonstrates the school’s commitment to creating academic programs that directly influence the industry. The family at our school also is changing. In addition to students, we also welcomed a few new talented and accomplished faculty members in each department. As you’ll see on page 10, our family also includes some of the tiniest future artists. Or perhaps they will be scientists or scholars. We love them just the same! Our family now also includes alumni. When I tell you that these influential young artists inspire me, believe me. The industry will change because of them. The fall semester didn’t seem quite the same without Todd Solondz here to teach, but we eagerly anticipate the release date for this film. You can be assured we’ll be among the first in the theatres to see his latest project. And now with the fall semester behind us, I’ve seen every student film, reading, and project. What our students accomplished in just 14 weeks is incredible. So much more is ahead in 2011. The spring semester starts now. Happy New Year!

Summer TISCH


By: Timothy Tan


or the first time in the summer of 2010, Singapore was offered as a destination for the highly popular Tisch Summer High School program. Eleven students from the United States, United Kingdom, South Korea and Qatar spent a month in Singapore learning the art of filmmaking. Through this program, the students made a music video, a short film and good friends while getting a better understanding of an undergraduate arts education. During the intense, month-long residential program, the students also learned more about the cultural diversity of Singapore. Together, they visited local performing arts venues and places of interest, watched an Indian classical dance, and they took a field trip to Malacca in Peninsular Malaysia, one of three Straits Settlements once colonized by the British.

The program ended with a screening of the students’ work on campus for invited guests, friends, cast, and parents. Many parents were amazed by what their children managed to accomplish in a short time. “I am glad that it was not just the technical aspect of the program that interested him. The business perspective has apparently inspired him, too,” said Mr. Richard Chen, the parent of Chris Chen. In the summer of 2011, the Tisch Summer High School Program in Singapore will offer Film, Musical Theater and Animation. A non-residential Film and Dramatic Writing program will be offered in June 2011 for high school students based in Singapore.

Mr. Stone on his film, which was the number one grossing film following its opening in September.

n 23 October 2010 Dr. Woffles Wu and Tisch School of the Arts Asia hosted a private dinner party to celebrate Oliver Stone’s latest feature film, Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps. Dr. Wu opened his private museum, Maosoleum, for Mr. Stone along with 40 invited guests.

Mrs. Lui also told the audience about Mr. Stone’s tireless dedication to the campus in Singapore, and announced the school’s SGD$30 million endeavor to introduce undergraduate programs at its Singapore campus.

“The special dinner and tour we did for Tisch Asia and Oliver Stone has been our most exhilarating. As the curator, I was deeply gratified that there was such visible appreciation of the collection. Even Oliver whipped out his camera to capture the sheer magic and artistry of the kinetic sculptures,” Dr. Wu said.

“Several educational institutions offer great diploma programs, but the region lacks a good undergraduate program in the arts. These students are going abroad to pursue their degrees, which results in more brain drain in Singapore,” Mrs. Lui said. “Tisch School of the Arts has the reputation and experience to deliver a world-class bachelor’s degree.”

In her opening remarks, Kwan Lui, chair of the Tisch School of the Arts Asia IPC Fund, congratulated

Artbeat writers recently interviewed the school’s first batch of alumni. Here’s what they said, in their own words and unedited. HAN WEST

lot of good places to do that in Southeast Asia, by the way) I realized that I’ve wasted so much time studying other people’s career paths and agonizing over how aligned or off course mine is with theirs. It’s only in the last few months that I’m really starting to realize and accept that you have to take your own path at your own pace. You just have to keep moving. Now, Warren and I have this company and we are doing good things. I’m much more comfortable with where I’m at, who I’m working with, what I’m doing, and where I’m likely (or unlikely) to go in the next couple of years. I’m happy to be in this headspace now and really excited to meet whatever’s coming down the road.

Founder, Dummy Pilot (Class of 2010, Graduate Film)

I think Singapore is a very interesting place to be right now for creative people. Singapore has an interest in perpetuating the arts and it is making allowances for a new cultural identity that will probably be defined by newer, edgier, and generally younger artists.

When I first got to Tisch Asia, I honestly did not know where I was going to be in three years. I did have a few small goals I hoped to achieve by the time I graduated: I wanted to be the guy to get into Sundance at an even younger age than Paul Thomas Anderson. I wanted to be developing a feature film that was going to blow people’s minds because it successfully combined Eastern and Western storytelling approaches. I wanted to have already made enough money from selling the script from said feature to be in the market for a condo in Singapore and maybe a house in Los Feliz. Sadly, none of these things came true. At the beginning of third year, my editing professor, Jenn Ruff said to me at a party, “you need to go somewhere and just like, chill out for a week, and think about what YOU really want to do and what really makes you happy.” And I did that (there’s a

“It is kind of awesome to feel like you’re smack in the middle of some kind of revolution, even if it is only on a little island with 6 million people. ” A classmate of mine, Marc Wiltshire (Class of 2010, Graduate Film), recently helped do a documentary about graffiti artists here in town. Another classmate of mine, Gerald Crump (Class of 2010, Graduate Film), is giving his time to develop an ‘artists quarter’ around Arab Street. Compared to three years ago, there really is better music, better food, cheaper booze, more interesting people, and a more relaxed hold from the government on what can and cannot be shown. “Blossoming” is the word I’d use to describe Singapore’s scene - it’s evolving, it’s growing, it’s incomplete - and so as a place to work, you can’t really ask for more.



we’re on is that Singapore is a smaller market, and it’s easier for people who do good work to stand-out.

Founder, Dummy Pilot (Class of 2010, Graduate Film)

“Part of what’s allowed us to chart the course we’re on is that Singapore is a smaller market, and it’s easier for people who do good work to stand-out. “ Plus it’s a much newer market, compared to the US, Europe, or even other parts of Asia. The media and filmmaking industries feel like they are really coming into their own now, whereas other Asian countries have very long histories in regards to production. I believe that’s also helped us because we have not had to try to break into a completely foreign and entrenched system.

When I first came to Tisch Asia, I really couldn’t see that far ahead to graduation and beyond. At the beginning, it was all so new — living half-way around the world, away from friends and family, and immediately thrust into an intense course-load — it was a bit overwhelming. I came into film school to sharpen my skills at filmmaking in order to truly enter into the industry, but as for specifics, I always operated under the intention that I would figure it out over my time at Tisch Asia. I have so many different interests: features, television, commercials, music videos, web virals... Plus, I enjoy writing, directing and producing, so there’s always been an element of seeing what would come along. It wasn’t until Han and I teamed up after our second year ended, with the end our studies was only a year away, that I think we both realized that short-form content would be a valid and smart entry point to make a name for ourselves, especially in this region. I believe that for guys like Han and myself, two recent film school graduates that we might not be in the same position if we were in the States as we are now. Part of what’s allowed us to chart the course

I certainly hope that Singapore can be a base for Han and I, not only as Dummy Pilot, but with regards to our other pursuits in feature narratives and TV. All of the major advertising agencies have offices in Singapore, and more and more foreign filmmaking and media entities are coming into the region, including LucasFilm in Singapore and Pinewood Studios in Malaysia. I think that’s a good sign for foreign filmmakers, especially Tisch Asia graduates, to pursue work and careers in this region. Foreigners have to make the investment to live and work in a different culture and Singapore will need to continue to invest in the means for foreigners to be able to stay here and make lives for themselves in and around this industry. My advice for candidates considering an education at Tisch Asia would be to first come to Singapore and spend some time in the country and the region before making their decision. If a candidate is from outside of Asia, I don’t believe the decision to come to Singapore can be taken lightly. The Tisch graduate film program is one of the most challenging in the world, and pursing it in a different continent only makes it that much harder. I think that every candidate must want to go to Tisch Asia, not only to receive a first rate education, but to also have a life changing experience.


Many things I know I took for granted in the States I don’t have access to in Singapore, and that says a lot as Singapore is an extremely westernized Asian country. Things get murkier very fast for those who choose to mount productions in some of the surrounding countries. But that’s part of the appeal of Tisch Asia: Singapore is located so close to so many fantastic countries to shoot in and tell stories. So the candidates who come to Tisch Asia from afar must not only be willing to dedicate themselves to three years of intense study, they must also possess a sense of adventure and courage that goes beyond what one might display at a graduate film program close to home. So for those who think they may have what it takes, and are up to the challenge, I’d definitely recommend coming here first and seeing the place and the region with your own eyes first.

they can really bring something new and exciting to the table.

“Asia has a huge film industry, stretching from India to China to Japan with an insurmountable amount of unique stories and characters.” Asia has a huge film industry, stretching from India to China to Japan with an insurmountable amount of unique stories and characters. These stories from Asia have a global audience and as different as we all are, the language of film is universal. Sean Ng is a film student whom I met on an NYU film in 2008. Sean approached me in September 2010 with

LAETITIA GANGOTENA Director, Looka Productions (Class of 2010, Graduate Film) When I first came to Tisch Asia I knew that I wanted to be a cinematographer. I got a BFA in Photography at Parsons School of Design and knew that I wanted to move into the film industry as a Director of photography. Currently, I have been primarily focusing on my DP track and the film I will be shooting in January as my thesis (a 2nd Year film). I have also been working on a few corporate film shoots and recently have become a partner with LOOKA PRODUCTIONS, a production company a friend of mine set up, that specializes in music and fashion content. Singapore is slowly but surely expanding in the arts and am I starting to notice a growing community of talented and creative filmmakers. I think Asia has a lot to offer to the screen, whether it be in advertising or in film and we, students from NYU are here and ready to soak it up. The advantage that the international students have here is that they are seeing Asia and mainly Singapore with a fresh pair of eyes and

talks of getting a production company started with a focus on music and fashion. We are a Director (Sean Ng) and DP (Laetitia Gangotena) team. I was extremely enthusiastic at the prospect of making creative and


commercial videos and with that Looka Productions was officially set up on October 10, 2010. Looka has been working with a live music venue and bar called TAB featuring video content to promote the music acts. Looka will be moving on to the fashion industry and have since, shot their first demo in Macau and are currently speaking to local designers about creating look videos for them. The goal at LOOKA PRODUCTIONS is to take the clothes out of a runway and into a real world environment. We want to create a story around your clothes so that your clientele can grasp what your brand is all about.

a lot of people are guessing and speculating about this and that and what will be the next breakout hit or success, projects are going in all sorts of directions. The breadth and variety is great. I think both Singapore and Asia present a lot of opportunities for interesting co-productions and collaborations between countries. Be prepared to be fully immersed in the program, whichever you are in. If you are not busy during your time at Tisch Asia, you are not taking full advantage of the program.

XU YIRAN Lucasfilm Singapore – Jedi Master Program (Class of 2010, Animation & Digital Arts)

LAI WEIJIE Producer, Homerun Pictures (Class of 2010, Graduate Film) I think my intentions after graduation were to be able to find work as soon as possible, within the region (an emerging market and industry) in a producing or director of photography capacity, while also being able to continue to work on my own projects. Immediately after wrapping on my thesis film, I started work as a producer at Homerun Asia, a Singapore based producing and distribution company. In what spare time I have had, I have been working to finish my thesis film and starting to develop another project with my writing and directing partner.

I was accepted in Jedi master program from July. I am being trained as an organic modeler for feature film. My education at Tisch School of the Arts Asia helped me a lot by giving me the chance to test my skills and experiment. We worked on a lot of projects in school from stop motion animation to installation arts. These projects improved my skills in problem solving and in independent study, which has been very useful in stressful working environment. I am currently a modeler, someone who transforms concept art into 3d models and I aim to be in animation, storyboarding or design for feature films in the future.

My impression so far is that the industry is a small community where everyone knows each other. These are pretty exciting but confusing times and there are a lot of films being produced by the region. I notice

FUTURE FILMMAKERS 2011 n 11 NOVEMBER 2011 New York University Tisch School of the Arts Asia announced the Future Filmmakers 2011 in Singapore, a free community service program organized in partnership with the People’s Association (PA). The workshop provides young filmmakers from underrepresented groups in society an opportunity to learn the art of filmmaking. The program is modeled after the William H. Cosby Future Filmmakers workshop, which has been in existence at the Tisch campus in New York for 16 years. Alumni of the New York workshop have gone on to pursue film studies at Tisch School of the Arts, Yale and UCLA. Faculty members from the Tisch School of the Arts Asia Graduate Film Department will teach the workshop from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Saturdays from February-May 2011. Enrollment is limited to 16 students, who are typically 16-17 years old. “Education should be accessible to everybody. Creativity and talent are gifts that any young person may have regardless of his or her financial background. Through the Future Filmmakers program, the school hopes to give young Singaporeans that are otherwise unfairly disadvantaged, an opportunity to learn a craft they are passionate about so that they can discover their talent and creativity,” Pari Sara Shirazi, Ph.D., president, NYU Tisch School of the Arts Asia, said.

“The PA will work closely with Tisch School of the Arts Asia to publicize this community service program to potential beneficiaries through our grassroots and Community Development Council’s social and school networks. Upon completion of the sponsored workshop, PA will invite them to form into a PA Young Film Makers Club and match them with interested constituencies to produce short videos or films based on real and heartwarming community stories. In this way, these young filmmakers will apply what they have learned and tell stories that will contribute to the community,” Mr. Nah Juay Hng, Group Director (Partnership Cluster), PA, said. At the end of the program, a screening of student work will celebrate their accomplishments. Parents, friends, cast and other guests will be invited to attend. The top three filmmakers will receive cash prizes awarded by Tisch School of the Arts Asia to fund their community films under the supervision of the People’s Association.

The People’s Association (PA) is a statutory body of the Singapore Government established in 1960 to promote racial harmony and social cohesion.
