I’m Joy, a Singaporean documentary filmmaker. I travel, direct, shoot and edit, and have been doing so for almost 8 years now.
I produce documentaries for government organisations, commercial clients and broadcasters. One of them was Discovery Channel, https://vimeo.com/268183168. I’ve worked with design consultancies like Fuelfor Healthcare Innovation. In 2014, I travelled with Fuelfor to 3 cities in Indonesia to create a series of 24 documentaries under the Asian Insights and Design Innovation programme of DesignSingapore to understand and highlight how Indonesians of the middle and upper-class seek rejuvenation in response to the stresses in their lifestyles. In 2015, I worked with Fuelfor and the National Council of Social Services to create films to show the daily struggles and battles caregivers in Singapore face, here are some of them: https://vimeo.com/172720999, https://vimeo.com/172526489, https://vimeo.com/170117061. We were awarded the prestigious President’s Design Award in July 2018.I have also recently launched my series, We Are All Escapists: https://www.viddsee.com/series/we-are-all- escapists. It takes a peek into the often-untold journeys of female ex- offenders in fairly conservative Singaporean society, and shines a vital spotlight on lesser discussed topics: depression, drug and substance abuse, domestic violence, and self-harm.
Although my background and passion is in documentary filmmaking, I also freelance as a video editor/videographer for many corporate companies and agencies.
