Wesley Wong's video, "International Coastal Cleanup Singapore"

Category : coastalcleanup

"International Coastal Cleanup Singapore," a video by Wesley J. H. Wong (2005). - Wesley Wong produced this video of the International Coastal Cleanup Singapore based on the cleanup at the Kranji-Buloh mangroves in September 2004. He is an overseas graduate in filmmaking and is now pursuing a career in video productions and "indie" projects. When he's not working on corporate and wedding videos, he works on short films for other directors. I called him just now and he's now working with VisualForge Films. He can be reached at wesleywongjh@gmail.com. If you like to see his wedding works, hop over to weddingclips.com.

Wesley approached us in 2004 to do his bit for the environemnt. He did this rather painlessly, inserting comments based on information from the ICCS webpage and the "Battling the Curse of Marine Litter" article. He produced the first cut in October and after comments from Angeline Tay and myself, he produced a second cut and then added music for a pleasant and informative piece. All this despite the fact all of us were pretty elusive after the cleanup as its crunch time in Oct-Nov, so he had enough tenacity to complete the job!

I think several of the coordinators and site captains who are still working on the site will enjoy reminiscing when they watch this.

Although this year's cleanup is all full up already for organisations, new comers are being scheduled for the 29th of September. But we need Site Buddies to help out - you would have to recce the site, learn about the cleanup and its background, marine life and impact of marine debris (morning of 8th September) and, of course, turn up bright and early on 15th of September this year at your designated site. If you are game to join an enthusiastic team, we'd love the help. Simply email:
