DRIVE: Ang Geck Geck, Singapore Film Director
About Ang Geck Geck:
Ang Geck Geck Priscilla is a graduate of School of Art Design Media (ADM), Nanyang Technological University of Singapore (NTU). She has directed short films, commercial works, and corporate videos.
Her debut short film, Broken Crayon received accolades and won the Best Short Film award at the Singapore Short Film Festival 2013. She is also an Alumni of Busan Asian Film Academy (AFA) in the role of a director.
I was very financially driven in my childhood as I was determined to make as much money as possible to support my grandparents who took care of me since young.
As a filmmaker, I am not making big bucks but it still allows me to provide them with a decent standard of living. To me, my current profession is extremely fulfilling as it allows me to explore my passion for the arts.
My belief is that film is the best medium to give me a voice to shape the world and tell my stories.
On Work Life:
As a freelancer, I do not have a fixed schedule. Nevertheless, I try to keep working hours to ensure I stay disciplined and complete my work in a timely manner. To spur myself on, I remind myself constantly of my long term goals.
On Life's Purpose:
I am a person who requires a long term goal to motivate myself in life. For example, if I recognize that doing something will serve a greater purpose for me, I'll be obsessed with making that work and that in itself fuels me on a day to day basis to complete my deliverables in order to achieve that goal.
Hence, to stay driven, I definitely need to identify with a strong purpose/goal.
On Managing Energy:
Learning new things gets me excited and it can be anything simple as long as it is something new to me. I do tend to get demoralized when I face rejection or failure and some quiet and alone time is typically sufficient for me to re-energize and refocus
Body Armour Item:
Anything denim would fortify me in facing any challenges that come my way
