We’re not sure if you know this yet, but you’re actually a wizard. The camera is your wand: powerful, precious, and full of light. Your spells? Film techniques, everything from colour theory to editing tricks. Your Professors of the Arts, calmly waiting for you nervous first-years to step hesitantly across our protective threshold, are our lovely film teachers Ms Joanna Ng and Ms Audrey Tan.

By Janthina Tan (21A01C), Avianna Yu (21S06P), Ng Ding Xian (21S03I), and Ang Tiong Ian (21S03I) 

Your heart is pounding and your lungs are burning—but your eyes remain locked on the shuttle in the air as you hold your ground, searching for ways to outmanoeuvre your opponent…then, you see it. You swoop in for the kill and swiftly secure another point. Another point for the team.
