Love Within Video Challenge

By Chen Shun  /  06 May 2020 (Wednesday)

Stuck at home and feeling bored? Looking for something creative to do? How about creating a short film to document your heart-warming stories of family life during the circuit breaker period! By doing so, you can stand a chance to see your work on the big screen and if you are chosen as one of the best videos, you also take home a cash prize!

Love Within Video Challenge is jointly created by mm2 Entertainment, AsiaOne and Cathay Cineplex. They are organising an online video challenge, where members of the public that are residing at home at invited to act, direct and create a short film around the theme of love during this period. Titled “Love Within”, the challenge is about creating a short film to talk about unconditional love that families share, and what gets them through their struggles during this difficult time.

“We are looking for messages of hope, positivity and love – all the things that the world needs right now. We know that everyone has a story to share; since everyone is staying at home it might be a good opportunity to capture that story on video for posterity.”
- Ng Say Yong, Managing Director of mm2 Entertainment


Love Within Video Challenge Requirement:

1. Must Be Shot Within Your Home ONLY
2. Your cast aka family can only be the ones residing in the same house
3. Can be shot with any phone and camera but the video output must minimally be HD quality
4. Landscape Format
5. Duration: 3-5 minutes

Some of you might be thinking that it is unfair if there were professionals competing in this challenge. Don’t worry as mm2 has figured it out. There are 2 separate categories — a Professional Category meant for the members of the media community and an Open Category for everyone else. Top 3 winners of each category will walk away with a $2000 cash prize. Sign up here today! 

The best video entries will be presented to the Singapore public in an awards ceremony to be held in July at The Cathay Cineplex. Subsequently, the Love Within videos will be converted to digital cinema format to be screened for the public at Cathay Cineplexes. What’s more, registered participants can participate in a series of free masterclasses hosted online by the judges. In these classes, the judges will go through some filmmaking basics as well as share their experiences in storytelling and creating a positive viewing experience. The schedule will be posted online.
