Our winning entry for the Fly By Night Video Challenge 2013. A 48 hr short film competition organised by Objectifs Centre for Photography and Filmmaking in Singapore.
Title: Phoenix From The Ashes
Phoenix From The Ashes is a story of a dancer whose world comes crashing down around him. His thoughts and emotions draw us into his journey of internal anguish, pain, struggles and at the end, his spectacular rebirth.
Through him we learn that we have the enormous capability to move on and the strength to pick ourself up and rise from the ashes. Just like a phoenix.
