Errrr you mean the Lucky Plaza? Haha I did shoot some footage of that when I was at the place to meet some of the girls.BillyB wrote:You've gotta include some orchard towers footage, or else I'll be switching over to 'the Singaporean workshop on how to be charismatic'.....
So, if you are not going to portray the subject matter truthfully, then why bother? It won't be fantasy nor will it be a documentary. Instead, it will just end up being another piece of garbage journalism put out by the STB so don't waste your time. A Michael Moore you apparently are not.ThuyChi wrote:That'd be too juicy for the audience, no?

I just watched the trailer... what do you expect the maids to say on TV? You want a real maids documentary, you leave them out of it, and you do your own research. Find the maids washing the master's car(s) at 6 AM, 7 days a week. Find the maids on Sunday, washing, cooking, ironing, yard work... never a day off. Find the maids still at work at 10:30 PM at night, only to get up at 5:30... to wash the cars. Find the maids that have barely habitable living conditions.ThuyChi wrote:Hello everyone
I'm working on a documentary project called 'The Maids". We're still in pre-production stage though... Trailer as below
I'm thinking of proposing it to be a TV series instead of one on YouTube only, but I'm not sure about audience responses to this... What do you think about such a documentary? Do you think Singaporeans and people in general will be interested in this? I'm looking to make around 10 episodes, 30 mins each.
*ahem* I'm collecting audience responses, sorry if you feel like I'm wasting your time
I tried. A girl told me that she doesn't mind talking to me, but she doesn't want her voice recorded, or her face on the screen. She's afraid her ex-employer hears her voice on the TV and sue her later. The other helpers just say no. Those that I did manage to get on-screen are the ones that are lucky enough to get good employers and their employers give them an "ok" to be interviewed and filmed.nutnut wrote:how about the old filming them in darkness with actors voice? and then filming candid shots in and around Orchard Towers, Geylang and Changi?
I imagine you'd get maids to talk if they were not on the screen themselves?
