Soup is thicker than Water

Who are we?

We are a group of 18-19 year old Year 2 film students from Ngee Ann Polytechnic in Singapore. Our film is titled "Soup is thicker than Water"


Soup is thicker than Water - Story

When the grandmother's health significantly deteriorates, Emma is forced to find a boyfriend, to show Grandma that she has someone that will take care of her. The problem is, that Emma has a secret relationship and is afraid that her grandmother will never accept it. While Grandmother starts to grow suspicious of her sexuality.

Director's Message:

As a son, the fear of my parent's disapproval is something that haunted me throughout my teenage years. The fear of getting scolded, shouted at, and caned is something many of us can relate to. However, as I grew older, I realized it was all out of love. Regardless of all the stupid stuff I have done, my parents have always loved me nonetheless. This short film's aim is to do just that, to capture the unconditional love of a parent. I hope this short film can be a gentle reminder that our parent's love transcends all boundaries.

-Owen Chen, Director


Why did we start this campaign?

As part of our course module, we are required to produce a short film. This short film contributes to our module's GPA. Our school only provides us with basic camera equipment. As a result, everything else has to come out of our own pocket. In theory, we could do this project with small funding. However, our team truly believes in this story and we would like to have access to resources in order to bring this story to its fullest potential. Our total budget is $2500, with $1000 coming out of our own pockets. However, any amount is appreciated.
