Congratulations to Khor Shing Nam, Shawn Siew Rong Jin, Low Yong Sen, Tan Wei Zun and Chue Sook Leng for their short video ‘Father’s Gift’ -- a tale of Dennis who hails from a poor family with a colour blind and mute father. Although they are very poor, his father still buys birthday gifts for Dennis every year without fail. The story picks up on a particular year when his father accidentally buys a pink shirt for Dennis as a gift. The gift is rejected as Dennis has had enough of seemingly childish presents. He also wishes for a father who can understand him and his wants better. However, in it hits home that it is him who has failed to understand his father.
They bagged second place winning a cash prize of RM5000 as well as Certificates of Merit.
“If you don’t try, you will never know!” exclaimed Tan Wei Zun.
