The Singapore Association of Motion Picture Professionals (SAMPP) is the culmination of the past few years' efforts that we all here have been pitching in, through the film+tv working group and the filmcommunitysg group, with the approval from the Registrar Of Societies.
We will officially launch in 1Q2018, and SAMPP's membership is open for application to motion picture professionals across the sectors ( film+tv+digital content) and for those all above- AND below-the-line credits, and alike for freelancers, employees, employers, company owners - just as long as you are an industry professional based in Singapore.
We engage on issues and offer consultation on industry policies and grant schemes with IMDA-MCI, NTUC, MOM, IPOS and Law Society Pro-Bono Services. Our aim is to be a platform for discussion and engagement for our industry with all stakeholders and all perspectives. We work towards raising awareness with info primer sessions on legal rights, insurance, self-management ( info on access to training grants and allowances, info about govt benefits and dues). We will also focus on producing a Code of Best Practices for Media Practitioners in various specialisations as a ground-up effort led by the working professionals themselves. We will collaborate and consult with the media schools, and help guide new entrants to the industry ( fresh grads and interns). Other activities include professionals networking and sharing sessions, as well as masterclasses.
Another future key feature will be a Professionals Portal with a Practitioners Database and a real-time job-matching app in development.
We have collaborative working affiliations with Screenwriters Association and Singapore Cinematographers Society
Borrowing from a famous quote, "Ask not what the industry can do for you, but instead, Ask what you can do for your industry. So that we may all have a voice and work together towards how we can flourish in our craft and our careers."
