What we're about

This group is about Kino Red Dot, the Singaporean Kino cell, activities.

The Kino movement was founded in 1999 in Montreal, Quebec, Canada by Christian Laurence and friends. They started the movement by meeting up every month and screening their short-films. It has since spread worldwide, and is now composed of almost 100 physical cells over the world.

Kino is a movement created as a means of providing both amateur and professional filmmakers with a place to create and screen their short-films.

We are an oasis of creativity outside the industry, our community is based on time sharing and generosity.

This is a bohemian way to do filmmaking, the short-films we are doing are low (zero) budget and there is no competition, no prize or no money involved. We are doing movies together because it is our passion and we are loving it! You will not be paid to act or to be involved in our movies, but you will not pay a filmmaking school to learn with us!

Our motto is: we do well with nothing, we do better with a little, but what matters is that we are doing it now!

Kino Red Dot was created in January 2016.

Needs a location

Jedidiah is a screenwriter and playwright. His short film, Tidal Swing, was nominated for Best Cinematography and Best Sound at Point and Shoot 2020 and featured at the Asia Rising Film Festival.

His play, Lion, is set to be staged by Toy Factory Productions in October 2021. He has studied under award-winning Hollywood screenwriter, James Thoo, iconic Singaporean playwright, Haresh Sharma and WritersLab International Expert, Colin Muir. He is obsessed with creating compelling and dramatic stories. In the pre-bad times, he liked telling his secrets performing spoken word poetry in seedy bars.

What is drama? Two people screaming/crying/kicking at each other?

Can a rubber ducky be dramatic?
How do we take a cool idea and turn it into an exciting, compelling and dramatic story?

These questions will be answered in this upcoming workshop, The Plot Thickens: From Idea to Story, by scriptwriter, Jedidiah Huang.

This workshop aims to demystify the misconceptions and secrets of drama. In this workshop, you will learn how to craft engaging characters through the GSU method, how to create focused and exciting loglines and how to create plot lines that maximise emotional impact at every possible turn.

This workshop is for anyone who has ever wondered whether their story was interesting or if anyone would even care about it.

By taking the guesswork out of it and learning the essential active steps to building a story, anyone can create a story that they would be confident in. Here for a limited time only (while he’s taking his mental health break)
