Tucked in an artistic enclave of Singapore,
on the breezy fourth floor of old-school Waterloo Center,
sits Very! and its very energetic team.
Very! is a boutique production company and “a very hardworking bunch” according to their business associates, suppliers, clients, friends and families. The people at Very! are very enthusiatic about their projects. Every project they do is a pet project because they only do projects they are absolutely nuts about.
The people at Very! love to travel, discover and explore all manners of things that pique their interests. And at the heart of it all, the people at Very! have an insatiable desire and drive to produce content that is inspiring, exciting and thought-provoking.
For quite a few months a year, the Very! crew live out of their seasoned suitcases, see very little of their friends and make many new friends while filming. They then huddle for the next few months in post-production suites, working furiously on their very “fun” projects.
Coming out of their hermit post-production period, the Very! crew celebrates the completion of yet another project.
