Short Film

Singapore Armed Forces
The Medical Response Force is a Special Forces (SOF) unit within the Medical Corps arm of the Singapore Armed Forces.

Trained to respond to Chemical, Biological, Radiological and Explosive (CBRE) warfare on top of their Emergency Medical Technician (EMT) skillset, MRF soldiers go through a rigorous 3-month long “conversion course” that pushes them to their physical and mental limits.

Designed to produce the ultimate chemical warfare-trained platoon and soldier, the MRF Conversion Course tests recruits’ physical and mental fortitude by throwing them into high-pressure situations daily wherein teamwork, fitness and risilience are essential to overcome challenges poised. This short film seeks to communicate the hardships faced by the 34th platoon along with the emotional and rewarding times throughout the day (or, high points, albeit short).

On a technical note: this film enabled me to employ skills set in directing and cinematography (writing, grading, etc), high bit-rate footage (8K optimised with proxies) and producing, on top of state-of-the-art film equipment.

The MRF is a special forces unit, so you might want to contact me if you’d like to know more about the goings-on in the film.

This project was done for the Singapore Armed Forces during my time as a full-time soldier serving my National Service. If you would like to know more about it (or other projects), please don’t hestitate to contact me.
