Disaster struck while CDTL was creating the Department of Community, Occupational
and Family Medicine's (COFM) video - our main in-house editing system broke
down! Our post-production team, headed by CDTL's Principal Media Producer
Manuel Gamboa, had to seek an alternative.
"We found a local production house with a non-linear editing suite,"
Manuel revealed. "We could then use the latest technology and create in
particular the attention-grabbing animation for the introductory segments."
So despite the setback, COFM: Serving the Community, the Nation and
the Region, commemorating the fiftieth anniversary of COFM, was completed
on time and proved to be quite stylish. Vice Chancellor Lim Pin and the
audience were duly impressed by the video when it premiered at the Opening
Ceremony of the COFM building on 17 October 1998.
For some time now, CDTL has been planning to acquire its own non-linear
editing suite. With the tender process complete, we hope to do so soon.
After all, CDTL continually seeks to improve the services it offers to
the NUS community.
