Heckler Singapore is pleased to celebrate its second year in business by announcing a superstar line up of International Directors as part of its new production offering in South Asia.
The new roster of global directors include NY based Andrei Juradowitch, LA based Reynald Gresset, Sao Paulo based directing duo Nylon (Boca & Caio), Director/DOP Patrick Sher, fashion photographer/ Director Tim Kindler and award winning animation Director Simon Rippingale based out of Sydney, Australia.
Charu Menon, Executive Producer of Heckler Singapore, said: “This last year has forced us to look at innovative ways of facilitating production, and has enabled unprecedented access to Directors based around the globe. Our campaign for Singtel via BBH Singapore directed remotely by Andrei from LA and filmed in Malaysia, with agency and client remotely reviewing in our suites in Singapore, was a great example of how seamlessly remote productions can work with the right partners in place! A locked off 3D previs blueprint and a trusting agency and client go a long way. Our campaign for SPCA Singapore via Forsman & Bodenfors Singapore, directed remotely by Tim Kindler in Sydney is another successful case study for us! We’re excited to bring a fresh edge to the local market while continuing to churn out work of high calibre and craft.”
Director Andrei Juradowitch, said: “I look forward to working more with South East Asia as well as the global hub of innovation that is Singapore. My mother hails from Singapore hence I’ve always had a deep rooted connection with the people and cultures that make up this diverse & ambitious country”
