Rachel is keen on pursuing a career in documentary filmmaking that is not limited to just Singapore. She believes that the world needs more documentaries as they can be said to be gold mines of genuine, true-to-life stories of people and places that remain to be told. To make a documentary is to work with the basic human need of telling a story and to share that opportunity and experience with others. Rachel is also an aspiring Sound Designer and is passionate about experimenting with the emotive qualities of the auditory dimension of film. On the side, she teaches and practices traditional mediums of visual art with passion, technique and inspiration from films, photography, pop culture and religion.
