Sandi Tan, film critic for Singapore's main newspaper, The Strait Times, is now pursuing her Masters in Film at Columbia University, New York. Jasmine Ng, film/video editor, majored in film and TV at New York University and Kelvin Tong graduated from the National University of Singapore and is the current film reviewer/journalist at the Singapore Strait Times. All three, 25, are co-directors for Moveable Feast. This is their first film together, having individually worked on various other film and theater projects. The three are now working on a new short film, The Origin of Species, about people with strange habits.
|A day in the gastronomic life of a Singaporean man whose insatiable taste for all kinds of food consumed in all kinds of places leads him to situations both strange and wondrous. The film seeks the hidden emotional intestine that links the stomach to the heart.|

Film Expenses added up to $2,500.
Mr. Tong called restaurants listed in the Yellow Pages for assistance.
Another, a Selegie Road kopi tiam, provided extras immediately.
