The Magical Glasses





 Hi Garie,

I got your contact from Yanni.

My name is Chee Tian, and I'm making an independent children short film entitled "Colours". It is a modern fairytale about a colour-blind girl's struggles to find colours in her life, how she got more than she bargained for, and how she finally attained harmony of colours with the world around her, when she realized that it is as important to give as it is to take.

In the film, we have a prop which is a pair of magic glasses. When the colour-blind girl puts it on, her black & white world suddenly transforms into a psychedelic one!

We have come up with a design of the specs, but we've been having problem finding someone who can construct it for us.

I saw your works on your website, and am fascinated by the skills and creativity that you possess! I'd like to find out if you would be able to assist us in creating the magical prop with your excellent craftsmanship?

We are planning to start shooting from 19 Jun onward. Hope to have your reply soon so that we can determine if we will be able to shoot with our desired design, or have to use whatever's available from a toy shop. We would definitely wish to be able to have our custom-made glasses.....

Thank you for looking into our request. We look forward to your reply.

Best regards,
Chee Tian


Hi everyone,

If you happen to be in Phnom Penh during that weekend, do drop by the screening hall and mingle with our Cambodian audience. I hope they'll enjoy the film. Look forward to its screening there.

Thanks for all your hard work which made this possible!

Hi everyone,

 I am pleased to bring you more news of Colours' screenings, as the film is selected for 2 more film festivals: Rhode Island International Film Festival in US, and Busan International Kids' Film Festival in Korea. Both will be held in the month of August. I have attached the mails from both festivals for your ref.
I am indeed delighted that the film is able to gain acceptance at all these film festivals, allowing us to reach out to audiences that we probably never expected to meet before. Hope to share this excitement with you.
Thanks and best regards,
Chee Tian

Dear Chee Tian Lee:
It is my pleasure to inform you that "Colours" has been selected for inclusion in the 11th annual Rhode Island International Film Festival (RIIFF) to be held August 7th-12th, 2007.  This year, we again received over 2,000 film submissions from across the globe and it was no easy task selecting the very best of our entries, so a hearty and well-deserved congratulations!
Please let us know the exhibition format you would like to screen with.  This will help us determine an appropriate theater.  We will try to accommodate your request though some venues can only screen a DVD.  I hope to have the screening times completed by July 20th at the very latest.   Once a venue is determined, we would appreciate delivery of your assigned exhibition format by Friday, July 27th, 2007.
