Comments from the Judges

“All the submissions showed a great deal of thought and effort. The pieces that kept me riveted had a couple of things in common – The video quality was not just competent but creatively employed. Also, these scripts were fresh and cohesive. However, the entries that truly resonated with me, that moved me, were those where the video’s authenticity came across honestly and unabashedly.”
- Dora Tan

“It was wonderful to see such a varied, creative and imaginative assortment of Coronalogues, I was especially impressed with our youth entries who found new and inventive ways to express their thoughts about Covid-19 and the circuit breaker through filming techniques, editing, special effects and animation. Many of the pieces were honest and moving reflections on a unique period in our history and were both written and performed with sensitivity, openness and personality. It was delightful to see that the circuit breaker has not diminished creativity and imagination.”
- Daniel Jenkins

“I was delighted by how whole-heartedly Singaporeans have embraced this wonderful project and really enjoyed watching everyone’s monologues, especially each person's own silver lining. Our hope is that in years to come, SRT's Coronalogue project will serve as an audio/visual history that will enable future generations to look back and reflect on this surreal year that we are living through.”
- Gaurav Kripalani
