Based on a true story, this short film traces the history of a 60s pop band through the discovery of a song and a persistent, loving granddaughter.
She discovered the story behind one of his favourite songs, and plotted a band reunion with his band mates for his birthday.
That was a sweet gift to reunite him with his mates, but she had another surprise up her sleeve.
Dreams never die. They’re just put on hold.
Ros created this for Ogilvy & Mather’s advertisement for SG50 campaign, the year-long celebration of Singapore’s 50th year of independence, which begins in 2015.
The band featured here, The Silver Strings, is one of the most popular 60s pop bands in Singapore who famously opened for The Rolling Stones in 1965 and performed for Anita Sarawak and the late Shirley Nair.
The granddaughter featured here is Chew Wei Shan, a musician and artist in her own right.
