TDJ model: Ang Geck Geck

Hi ladies, if you have been following The Dancing Jewels on our platforms and store updates, you would have noticed that we are working on a revamp of our site, as well as concocting new sets of photos for our products.

On board with our journey is Ang Geck Geck (AGG),

Why AGG you may ask?

We knew Geck Geck since secondary school days. We were school mates but didn't know each other personally. We knew her as a pretty girl in the Track and Field team from the next class. Naturally we became facebook friends and all along we had been aware of her taking up modeling stints.

When the day came that we wanted to find a TDJ face, we were racking our brains. We wanted someone with character. Someone who likes to dress up and be at the fashion forefront. Someone with style and who wants to flaunt.

And here she is(:

A screen capture from one of her recent projects with Rhesa and Endah from Indonesia and Camille Co from Phillipines for Tic Tac commercial.

Besides being our model, AGG is also a film director and producer after graduation from NTU BFA, Digital Filmmaking. She has also been to Shanghai, Indonesia, Phillippines and Korea to direct various works. 

Back then, to help ease her grandparent's financial burden, and to her fund her studies, she has done door-to-door sales, sold ice cream via push carts, waited on tables at Chinese restaurants, sold clothes at Isetan and even whipped up breakfast sets at local coffee shops.

Some of the screen grabs from her instagram @anggeckgeck of work with local artistes.

Her debut short film, Broken Crayon received a few accolades, got featured in Straits Times and won the Best Short film award in the Singapore Short film Festival 2013. 

Apart from her involvement in the local film industry, AGG is also an Alumni of Busan Asian film academy (AFA) as a role of a director . She experienced film making in Korea and learnt from Lee Chang Dong, one of the famous and well respected directors in Korea. On top of that, she also attended master classes and directed a short film called Black Mirror with other Asian filmmakers.

Her recent short film, Three Little Pigs was shortlisted to be screened in Singapore International Film Festival 2014, and will also be showcased under Singapore Airlines film collection in the month of June 2015!

Not only is AGG carving her name in the film industry, she is also captured in the fashion arenaa, with features in Style magazine and NUYOU.

She's also currently directing short films for UOB and HDB, and also very busy working on her upcoming features.

So here's our TDJ face, talented film director, fashionable stylist.

No wonder filmmaker Eric Khoo – well-known for his movies exposing the underbelly of Singapore – invited NTU alumna Ang Geck Geck to work as a script supervisor for Ghost Child, a gripping local horror film starring veteran actor Chen Hanwei.

If you haven't seen her video that went viral, garnering more than 4k likes within 5days, you should really take a look. We really liked the screenplay and we hope you do too!
