About Your Grandfather’s Road:
The purpose of Your Grandfather’s Road project is to create and produce a meaningful feature film by crowd-sourcing ideas from the public. This is done via a dynamic website (www.yourgrandfathersroad.com) which facilitates creative collaboration between a community of public contributors across cyberspace and film industry professionals.
The website functions as a platform to generate, discuss and develop story and character ideas with the public. Parts of the screenplay will then be released to invite suggestions for casts, design, location, music, art direction and cinematography. In this way, YGR is redefining the traditional roles and processes of filmmaking.
Your Grandfather’s Road is an inter-weaved, multiple-plot feature-length movie. It will be shot in mid-2010.
Some background info about the short films:
"Baby The Rain Will Fall"
Baby The Rain Will Fall, a short film by Adrian Loh, co-directed with Manesh Nesaratnam, is about a girl who has a secret and her problems with love. Starring Davina Goh and Alfred Loh, this light-hearted drama takes inspiration from the real-life accounts of a girl with a rare medical condition, in seek of social and self-acceptance.
The Invigilator, directed by Manesh Nesaratnam, is a story about two high-school teachers and their aspirations in the teaching profession. Starring celebrity actors Cheryl Samad, and Tony Eusoff, this film is at once a light-hearted clash of pedagogical perspectives and at the same time an echo of societies’ frustrations with the inadequacies of available education systems.
