Singtel MIO TV Commercial

Category: Work Blogs


Earlier this week, I mentioned in Twitter that I did a TVC (television commercial) for Singtel MIO TV.  Both Li Lin and I have done our fair share of TVCs, but this one was definitely a little more special cuz it was the first time we did one with the entire family.  In the past, we would’ve opted to use some “other” kids to act as our children.  Recently, Sage and Jonas have expressed more of a curiosity into the wacky world of television so we decided to throw them in the mix too.  When I returned from the States, one of the first things I did was give Jonas a Mini Mohawk cuz I know he’ll pull it off better than I ever could!

As I’ve said before, I’m not a big fan of working with children and animals, but it was truly a different experience working with your own “flesh and blood.”  Once the cameras and lighting were all set…


…then it’s time to get these little people in “character” to be happy and cheerful, which can be no small feat.


Fortunately, these little people weren’t being too “Diva-like” this day so that made for a smooth shoot.  Of course, it didn’t hurt that the director was kind enough to focus on shooting all the entire family shots first.  Once that was done, it was time to get down to business…


…or monkey business!


There was even a scene in the storyboard where I had to cook…


As much as I like to eat, anyone WU knows me knows that cooking is not one of my many (or few) talents so fortunately my better half can seriously cook with the best of them!


So that’s a sneak peak of our upcoming TVC.  Thanks again to the Singtel team who really made our day when they showed up with customized T-shirts poking fun about us from Loopz to Detective Elaine Tay to The Amazing Race Asia!

I actually bought her that dress when I was back in LA at a boutique shop in Old Pasadena. Thanks for all your support!
