Running On Empty: UK Shyam

“I think track and field took me away from going home, because at home there was generally always nobody there and it was a reminder that I came from a broken family.”
— UK Shyam

Running on Empty by Kenneth Khoo, is a book on UK Shyam, the current national 100m record holder in Singapore, and his struggles in the athletics scene in Singapore.

To promote the book, Run & Gun Media in partnership with Ethos Books first produced a trailer, then a documentary, that details Shyam’s sporting journey that led to his record. In the video, we also talk to two people that came into Shyam’s life when he needed it: C Kunalan and Ang Peng Siong.

Part of the proceeds from the sale of the book will go to the Chiam See Tong Sports Foundation to support underprivileged youth athletes.

Before It All Goes

In conjunction with Darren Soh's solo exhibition at Objectifs about the disappearance of our post-independence architecture, Run & Gun Media co-produced a 20-minute documentary to go deeper into the tensions behind these buildings' gradual disappearances, beyond Darren Soh's photos and captions. We talk to residents of a Tanglin Halt HDB flat, a homeowner of Pearl Bank Apartments condominium, and commercial tenants of Golden Mile Tower.
