After a few months of planning and filming, we are proud to share our latest production in 2022: The Grand Singapore Hotels.
Inspired by Wes Anderson's The Grand Budapest Hotel, The Grand Singapore Hotels explores the architecture, interior design, unique features, and great people behind the facade of 5 remarkable hotels in Singapore through a symmetrical, planimetric perspective. This 5-episode mini-series is a follow up project to the short film "A Wes Anderson-ish Singapore" that focuses on the hotel and hospitality aspect of Singapore’s urban fabrics.
The selection of hotels offers a glimpse of the diverse forms and functions of hotel designs, paying tribute to the hospitality sector who have braced the storm of the pandemic for the past 2 years and counting, as well as to the academic award-winning film through cinematography and screenplay references.
