For 'The Lion City', the idea behind the extension of the tilt shift technique is for focus and distance to be something the viewer can experience. It also doubles to communicate the constant heat and humidity that hits you whenever you leave the comfort of air conditioning in Singapore.

About Pamelyn Chee
Pamelyn Chee is a film actress originally based in New York City. She starred in Wayne Wang’s “ Princess of Nebraska” which premiered at Toronto Film Festival. She most recently completed work on the French adventure TV series “ Déjà Vu: Saison 2” as the Asian lead character “Sun”, a time traveling superhero, currently premiering on France 4. With a chameleon like quality, she takes on a range of roles from wayward , off kilter characters to docile, traditional women. Pamelyn is currently working on the Chinese long form drama “Your Hand in Mine” in Singapore, playing a blind girl who knows martial arts. Effectively fluent in English, Mandarin and Cantonese, she travels between the US and Asia for film and TV roles.
We interviewed 20+ local artists over 2 days asking them what art meant to them and edited the hours of footage we got down into 2 x 30-sec TVC segments. These were aired in cinemas as well as on outdoor screens throughout the island.
