“You just need your surroundings and you can evolve”- Mark Ong
Mark, aka “SBTG” (Pronounced “Sabotage”), takes viewers through his creative process as a sneaker designer and his roots growing up in the perceived restrictions of Singapore. Finding inspiration in the simplest of forms, SBTG created the “138” shoe collaboration with FICE Boutique in Salt Lake City, Utah. SBTG explains his inspiration coming from the song “We Are 138” by The Misfits and how that guided the shoe collaboration. On the surface, the film aims to expose the cerebral world of Sabotage and an emerging sub-culture in Singapore. But, the film becomes deeply personal as SBTG reveals how his life experiences have affected his artwork and mentality.
