C.L.I.F. Preview at Sinema Old School
MediaCorp TV Channel 8 held an exclusive preview of its upcoming police drama, C.L.I.F., (Courage. Loyalty. Integrity. Fairness.) at Sinema Old School on Friday, 20 May. Hosted by Ben Yeo, the private event was attended by the media, selected bloggers, and excited fans of the cast. The leading stars present at the preview were Tay Ping Hui, Joanne Peh, Chen Tai Ming, Aileen Tan, Chris Tong, and Romeo Tan.
There was an air of excitement in Sinema’s theatre, as everyone gathered to catch a private screening of the first episode of C.L.I.F., complete with popcorn and a goodie bag. Loyal members of the stars’ fan clubs were present, and had brought along colourful posters to cheer their favourite stars on. Prior to the event, bloggers had been invited by Channel 8 to apply to cover the event. The lucky selected 20 bloggers were given the opportunity to interview the cast and get up close and personal with them.
The cast were enthusiastic when speaking about the series and engaged in candid banter with the audience. They briefly shared their experiences in filming C.L.I.F., which is not like the typical crime-busting local drama. Supported by the Singapore Police Force, the action-packed series is based on real cases and aims to be as realistic as possible. Filming the series involved a great deal of effort, both on the part of the cast’s acting and physical abilities, as well as on the production crew’s side, in terms of special effects and tricky, ‘big’ scenes that involved bomb explosions, for instance. There was a question-and-answer session after the screening, and C.L.I.F. goodie bags were given out as prizes. The event ended with an informal photo-taking and autograph session, and the cast gamely posed for pictures with the delighted fans and bloggers.
