We were tasked to create the opening intro and produce audio/music for the entire episode. This episode will air on BiblioAsia on June 2, 2022.

Looming music, ambient drones and eerie keys set the tone for this episode. Supporting the tense dialogue between the 2 actresses, the audio had to be placed at the right time and with the right vibe. We used samples from Splice and added our own compositions in Ableton.
As for the intro, we bounced several ideas before deciding on a cryptic, element-driven introductory scene.
In 1940s and 1950s Singapore, the night life was lit up by amusement parks where anyone of all ages could spend their time engaging in fun games, indulge in tasty snacks and take in the moods of the night lights. But among the shows and games, a brighter stage draws the crowd.
This is the story of Rose Chan – the best known who worked in the cabarets.
For this project, we were tasked with coming up with the opening intro sequence, showcasing documentary articles through motion graphics and accompanied by the music we composed for the entire episode.
This episode will air on BiblioAsia on May 26, 2022.
Check out the opening sequence below.
A brighter tone in music is set for this episode. 50s Jazz, keys and A LOT of wind instruments were used in composition of the soundtrack. Each scene and subject deserved its own background music to set the mood, so we had to bounce a fair bit of music tracks before deciding which suited best.
The intro was also element-driven, using actual newspaper cutouts from that time, scanned and animated in post.
Let’s make it work, let’s make it happen.
