At its height, the ‘Unbelievable’ music video took in up to 2.3M viewers on Youtube. This purposefully campy and clichéd video became a household favourite where Singaporeans could laugh at each other in the light of romance, declarations of love. The catchy song routine even went on to become one of Singapore’s comedy films. Seriously, making people laugh, professionally is no joking matter. There is the writing, the characterizations, the timing of the delivery, and many more. Ong Kuo Sin, writer/director of the ‘Unbelievable’ phenomena will share some of his challenges and techniques.
Ong Kuo Sin graduated from UT Austin and has directed for 15 years.
Notable works include “Chemistry”, “Parental Guidance”, “Sayang Sayang”, “Extreme Gourmet” and “Extreme Japan”. He also directed the well-received tele-movie “The Promise” (向日葵的约定), and dramas like “Secret Garden” (秘密花园), “JUMP!”(跳浪!) and “SCRUM!”(冲锋!).
In 2013, he completed his first feature film, “Judgment Day”(世界末日). In 2015, he wrote the viral hit song“Unbelievable” and the subsequent movie “Mr. Unbelievable”. He is now serving as the Executive Producer on the Channel 5 drama “Tanglin”.
