Following a call-for-proposals that went out in May, Viddsee Studios has selected eight short films and four short-form series that will be produced under the first phase of the StoriesTogether Content Fund. This initiative aims to help filmmakers and audiences through the challenging times by content creation, watch parties, live discussions and more. This is part of IMDA’s S$8m Public Service Content Fund that was announced on April 14 to help media companies benefit from more production project opportunities.

Through this initiative, Viddsee Studios will work with 12 Singapore-based media companies to create a diverse range of films and series that cut across multiple genres of thrillers, drama, and comedy, as well as Viddsee Studios’s first motion illustration series that explores and reimagines popular Singaporean myths and legends in different visual styles created for the digital medium. 

The 12 media companies that will be involved in this phase are Butterworks, Bert Pictures (which produced ‘Ramen Shop’, ‘Zombiepura’, and HBO’s ‘Food Lore’), Little Red Ants Creative Studio, Millenia Motion Pictures, The Moving Visuals Co, Papahan Films, Orange Socks, Cutscene, Akanga Film Asia (which produced ‘A Land Imagined’), Taipan Films, Oak3 Films, and Sproud. 

This initial slate is expected to be released in stages from November 2020 with the launch of until February 2021. There will also be a call for proposals for the second phase of short films and series out in late-August 2020, with their debuts scheduled in March 2021. 

In the coming months the StoriesTogether initiative will encompass more efforts across the region, including the Viddsee Juree Awards in Indonesia, the Philippines and Singapore, special screenings, and weekly premieres.
