Through colloquial connections to students at JIS, I was able to reach out to my friend Gioh Sung, a prospective film director. Working as her assistant, I was shown the basics of directing, becoming part of the SPEEK productions group.
When watching films for recreation, I now find myself picking up on why the director used that specific camera angle, length of take etc and what emotions the director wishes to excite through these techniques.
On top of this, SPEEK’s desire to input subtle undertones and morals into their work intrigued me; I always find that my work ethic skyrockets when the fruits of my labor have cause.
It is because of this reason that I believe that my enrollment in this Creativity demonstrates my ability to engage in an activity with global significance.
