27 NOV 2016, SUN / 11.00AM / 60MIN
IMPORTANT TICKETING INFORMATION BELOW
Jack Neo needs no introduction when it comes to Singapore’s filmmaking history. A prolific and award-winning actor, writer and director who has enjoyed many commercial successes in local and overseas box-office, Neo is an industry veteran when it comes to television and cinema. Working with both experienced and young talents, his knack for finding the right cast to deliver his homegrown stories has been lauded and acclaimed by many. In this conversation session, we find out about his casting process, how he imparts his knowledge as an actor to the actors he works with, and how he brings out the best in his films through his writing and directing.
Jack Neo won the local audience over with his signature comedic hosting style in variety programmes during the 1990s, including the longest running local and highly rated variety show, Comedy Night. Following his success on television, Neo ventured into the film industry with Money No Enough (1998), Singapore’s second highest grossing feature film to date. He has since written, produced and directed nine other films to commercial success. Neo’s contributions to the local film industry have earned him honourable mentions including the Lifetime Achievement and Multi-Talent Awards in 1999 and 2004 respectively, the Public Service Medal Award in 2004 and the Arts Cultural Medallion Award in 2005.
