I’m a professional screenwriter, author and blogger based in Singapore. On this podcast we talk about the craft of writing, storytelling and leading a passionate life. We also feature filmmakers, entrepreneurs and fascinating people with a story to share.
In this episode, I interview Eugene Seah, one of my good friends and an accomplished editor and colourist. After editing TV programmes, online videos and short films for nearly a decade, Eugene explores what it's really like to edit stories in the post-production stage...and the numerous challenges along the way.
Later he also touches upon:
- Why editors are the voice of Zen
- The challenge of dealing with egos
- Why some work will never be perfect
- The empowered editing choices of Christopher Nolan's 'Dunkirk', 'Mad Max: Fury Road', and 'The Florida Project',
- And why great directing and great editing is intrinsically linked
Eugene really offers some eye-opening insights, so do take a listen and if you have any questions or queries that you'd like me to answer in the next episode, do contact me at:

In this podcast, we cover some tips to build your personal, creative brand. Many people struggle with getting known for what they do, but I truly believe it’s not as hard as it seems. You just have to realise one simple fact: people are not going to flock to with opportunities if you don’t know who you are.
You don’t have to be flashy, try to be overly-cool or put up a false pretence. You don't even have to be a qualified expert. All you need is a platform to reach people, the willingness to give out your knowledge for free (yes, people love free stuff), and trust in your unique authenticity.
And lastly, focus on cultivating relationships and spreading ideas. These are the currencies of the future that will build your brand, develop a community around what you do, and enable you to get paid for your work.

In this episode, I interview Singaporean cinematographer and director of photography, Khairulhakim. He talks to me about his 9-year career, why cinematography can do more than frame a shot, and his new science-fiction short film KARA. And lastly, he offers his number one rule to carving out a career. It's a theory he calls 'The power of being nice!' You don't want to miss this one.
