In the Making
Direction/ Camera/ Edit/ Colour
In the Making, is a short profile on a local craftsman that celebrates the values behind his dedication. Uncle Jimmy mends a steel flask, an artefact commonly used in local kopitiams (coffee shops) to make coffee and tea. His skills and dedication to the craft sheds a new light on this seemingly simple and humble object that is an icon of our everyday Singapore.
