What Pangdemonium fans can expect in 2014 2014 is looking to be another strong year for Adrian and Tracie Pang's Pangdemonium. If you're familiar with their work, you would notice this recurring theme in their productions. They don't touch ordinary plays!

And somehow, they make it all come together fabulously through theatre. Their shows last year Rabbit Hole, Next to Normal and Gruesome playground injuries were received with adulation by the Singapore media as well...Last modified on

That's why I have great respect for what they are doing and the social message behind this video. Teaming up with world famous DJ, Armin Van Buuren, this global campaign, called “Dance More, Drink Slow”, focuses on making moderate...Last modified on

Not only is this video an example of good creative advertising, it's also engaging with a gorgeous lead that looks like a mix of James Franco and Tom Welling. As someone who enjoys making films, I love the techniques employed in the film from the mini birds eye view time lapses at intervals and.
