Every Singaporean Son – The Animated Series

In this first-ever animated series on National Service, follow four fresh enlistees as they embark on a journey of self-discovery during Basic Military Training (BMT).

// Series produced by PIONEER & Robot Playground Media

Episode 1: Enlistment

What do you feel when you enter BMT? Excitement, anxiety, dread? In this pilot episode, the recruits get their first taste of Army life at Pulau Tekong.

Episode 2: The Wife

Every recruit is introduced to his new “wife” during Basic Military Training – the Singapore Assault Rifle 21. Will it be a marriage of love?

Episode 3: First Book Out

Time to book out! Spirits are high but there's trouble on the horizon for some of the recruits…

Episode 4: The Range

"Safety ring twist, safety ring pull, safety pin out… GRENADE!" How will the recruits fare in their live grenade throw?

Episode 5: Field Camp (Part 1)

How bad can field camp be? Find out with the recruits as they learn to fight and survive in the jungle!

Episode 6: Field Camp (Part 2)

Tensions are high as stress and fatigue catch up with the recruits in field camp. Will luck be on their side when one of them loses his rifle magazine in the dead of night?

Episode 7: The Final Test

When live rounds are whizzing overhead, it's not easy to stay cool! Will the recruits make it through the Battle Inoculation Course? Or will they falter and drop like flies?

Episode 8: 24km

POP loh – two words that every recruit longs to yell. As the boys complete their 24km route march and the graduation parade, it's the end of a journey, and the beginning of another.
