The Videography Club was established in 2007 with the aim of nurturing well-rounded infocomm enthusiasts who are passionate about video production and active in providing videography support for school events, presentations and competitions.
Through workshops, expert coaching and peer sharing, members acquire skills ranging from the handling of specialised equipment, storyboarding and camera techniques, to editing footages and managing post-production enhancement. In the process, the club proactively instills in members important values such as responsibility, resilience and teamwork.
The fruits of our members’ development include the contributions they have made to the production of quality videos for the school such as the Anniversary and Awards Day presentation video, and informative videos for Chinese New Year, International Friendship Day and Total Defence Day assembly programmes.
Over the years, the Club has achieved positive outcomes. For instance, in 2017 our team won the Silver Award in the Schools Digital Media Awards (SDMA) jointly organised by the Ministry of Education (MOE) and Ngee Ann Polytechnic (School of Film and Media Studies). The competition provided an opportunity for our students to showcase their talents in creative digital media. The club submitted two short films for the competition entitled ‘The Dog’ and ‘Letting Go’ based on the theme of cyber wellness. ‘The Dog’ makes use of symbolism and metaphors to promote deeper thinking into issues surrounding cyberbully with the intent of encouraging viewers to be ambassadors to encourage the safe use of the Internet. Out of a total of 427 entries from 184 schools, ‘The Dog’ was conferred the Silver Award. Our members look forward to the return of the SDMA competition in 2019.
In 2018, the Club submitted three videos for the Central Narcotics Bureau (CNB) Anti-Drug Video Competition, namely ‘Where is Everyone?’, ‘JOLIE’ and ‘The Most Fortunate First Time Drug Abusers’. These videos belong to the thriller, documentary and news (social media) genres respectively, with the intent to warn students of the damaging effects of drug abuse. We look forward to a favourable judging result.
