Hi there!

We are a team of 4 final year students from Nanyang Technological University, Wee Kim Wee School of Communication and Information (NTU WKWSCI) embarking on a project for our short film titled Tiny Fighter!.

Synopsis

Tiny Fighter! is a feel good and coming-of-age short film that follows 8-year-old Shaun on his first journey to the supermarket. While his mother prepares for a family dinner in the midst of chaos, Shaun volunteers to buy groceries for his mother. Underneath his excitement to embark on a journey, clad in flimsy homemade armour inspired by his favourite video game, he realises his fear of pigeons. New fears and friends made, the boy discovers a level of maturity he never knew he had. A whimsical escapade told through the eyes of a little boy, this short film tells the tale of a small milestone in his life.

Director's Statement by Scott Tan

This film was inspired by a moment that was very personal to me, a core memory that stuck with me till now. As a kid I didn’t think much of the situation, and you never know the value of a moment until it becomes a memory. So I wanted to bring that moment across through this film, and to give a seemingly small situation another perspective.

Essentially we’re talking about the difficulties of life. And more often than not, fear is just the obstacle standing in the way of progress. Like our protagonist, we hope our film can be that gentle nudge towards overcoming your personal fears and challenges, bolstered by the love, care and support from those around you. Be it a phobia, or even a fear of the uncertainties in life, we hope that this short film will be that film that people can relate to, and if not relate, empathise with. We intend to provide an optimistic outlook to tackling challenges ahead, and our chosen avenue to tell a child’s story is through film.
