That’s WICKED Joy!

That’s WICKED! wins best documentary at this year’s Singapore Short Film Awards (SSFA). Directed by Joy Lee the film charts the Singapore beatbox scene.

Joy: “Did you know that in the world of Beatbox, Dharni Ng, the pioneer of beatbox in Singapore, is crowned fifth in a world championship held in the year 2010? There are many more beatboxers in our local scene that are struggling to have their passion and talent recognized by Singaporeans who dismiss beatboxing as ‘noise’. Featured in “That’s WICKED!” is fifteen-year-old Martin Tang, among the other enthusiasts. Given his age, you will be amazed at his flair for beatboxing.”

That’s WICKED is Joy’s first documentary film. The production world-premiered at the 2012 IDFA in Amsterdam and premiered at other festivals including ChopShots 2012 in Jakarta.

Joy started out directing theater plays while pursuing a diploma in Theatre and Arts management at a local polytechnic, during which she directed her first short film The Irony. She recently graduated with a B.a. Hons degree in Film from the Puttnam School of Film, LASALLE. “As an emerging artist and filmmaker, I hope to carry on improving my skill and gradually help the pioneers strengthen Singapore’s film industry.”
