A sweet ending to a new beginning! Our Diploma in Visual Effects and Motion Graphics (DVEMG) alumnus, Alvin Lee, has graduated from the renowned Beijing Film Academy (BFA) and is ready to take the film industry by storm.
Alvin beat over 1,000 applicants to be the first Singaporean to be accepted into the BFA five years ago.
“Beijing Film Academy is like the Shaolin Temple for film!” he shares.
“Everyone eats, lives and breathes film which I believe is a culture that only exists there as it is really meant to train and develop great filmmakers!”
Alvin’s talent shone through during his time in Beijing when he bagged six accolades for his various films, including the China Short Film Golden Hummingbird Award for Best New Director! Since returning home, Alvin has been busy working on several local film projects in Singapore. His BFA graduation film ‘A Time For Us’ will also be premiering at the Singapore International Film Festival where it is has been nominated in the Southeast Asian Short Film category!
