DMC video of Samsui woman wins over video competition judges
A video produced by three Diploma in Mass Communication (DMC) students won the hearts of the judges at a recent student video competition jointly organised by the National Youth Achievement Award Council (NYAA) and the NYAA Gold Award Holders’ Alumni (GAHA).
The trio’s video submission to the NYAA-GAHA SG50 Videography Competition – titled The Red Scarf – moved the judging panel so much that they were awarded second place in the competition.
Produced by Joanne Liao Yi Ting, Norazreen Abd Haris and Kane Raynard Goh Rong Wei, The Red Scarf is based on the competition theme “Discovering the Past, Building the Future” and chronicles the hard life of a former Samsui woman.
The video also celebrates Singapore’s history and landmarks, including the contributions of our pioneer generations.
Work on the video began during the students’ internship. For two months, the trio multitasked and frequently worked after office hours and on weekends to do research, conduct interviews, film, and edit.
Kane received a Citation Plaque and a cash prize of $500 on the team’s behalf at the Prize Presentation Ceremony during GAHA’s 20th Anniversary Celebration Dinner on 26 May 2016.
