mm2 Entertainment Announces Three-year Plan to Develop Local Scriptwriters.

By Flora  /  16 May 2016 (Monday)

As part of a partnership with Media Development Authority of Singapore (MDA), mm2 Entertainment will train aspiring scriptwriters and hone the skills of established writers to improve the overall quality of Chinese feature film scripts.

From a total budget of S$8 million, the three-year programme will be carried out in three phrases: a Chinese Scriptwriting Masterclass 2016; Scriptwriter’s Lab; and a to-be-announced phase three.

The first phase, the mm2 Chinese Scriptwriting Masterclass 2016, was launched and completed successfully in March 2016. This was a four-day workshop carried out over two weekends, attracting close to 100 applicants including professional scriptwriters, media practitioners and actors. Students attended lectures and seminars conducted by five renowned scriptwriters from Hong Kong and Taiwan whose works include “A World Without Thieves”, “Feel 100%”, “Red Cliff”, “Our Times” and “SPL”. 

“This initiative is launched to upscale the capabilities of Chinese language scriptwriters in Singapore,” said Ng Say Yong, Managing Director of mm2 Entertainment. “We were highly encouraged by the positive response of the participants to the Scriptwriting Masterclass. Even industry veterans came up to me to tell me how useful the seminars were. We’re confident that Phase Two of the programme would build on the solid foundations set by the Masterclass.” 

Phase Two is a Scriptwriter’s Lab, that will help scriptwriters develop and write a full-length feature film script. The Scriptwriter’s Lab is a six-month programme which will be helmed by two mentors to guide the participants through the development and scriptwriting process. Scripts of creative merit will be produced into feature films.
