Formula One Singapore Grand Prix Insights

In collaboration with MIT SENSEable City Lab, this data visualisation video was created using the data analysed by DataSpark together with the DATACOLLIDER tool. A total of 3 different types of data analysis of the F1 Singapore Grand Prix period are featured in this video: the top countries, where do tourists go, as well as the overall crowd patterns. It showcases the insights that can be derived from footfall data of people in a region during the event. Find out why crowd pattern insights matter and how you can use them to optimise spends and improve sales.

This video was also showcased at the SingTel Sky Suite lounge during the F1 2014 event, as well as to various top management of government-related organisations as part of DataSpark’s marketing efforts.

This dashboard was displayed at the Singtel World @ F1 Sky Suites during the F1 Singapore Grand Prix 2014. It showcases the number of SMSes, calls and people in different seating zones of the Marina Bay F1 Circuit in real-time. This enables businesses to visualise and plan for crowd patterns.

Mix or Not

To mix or not to mix? This short film discusses the issues of the cosmopolitan, multi-racial, multi-ethnic society in Singapore, and how they are related to the mixing in food culture. The film attempts to link the analogy of food mixing to how society mixes people and cultures together into a melting pot, describing the advantages of mixing things together as well as the problems related to doing so.

Rag to Riches [a documentary of NUS Rag and Flag] (2011)

A 25-minute documentary produced and directed by myself with the help of a group of friends.

Synopsis:

Intrigued by how Rag & Flag elicits reactions that range from extreme passion to simple indifference and even utter distaste, a group of NUS students set out to discover the origins of this NUS tradition. But dwelling deeper into the present-day microcosm of Rag & Flag, the controversy behind this annual event becomes apparent. From vicious inter-hall and inter-faculty rivalry to escalating costs afflicting all parties, interviews with key participants paint a stark picture of a tradition gone astray and evolving out of proportions.
