SASS are three girls set to rock your world with their powerful vocals and beautiful harmonies.
After watching an a cappella concert one day, a few girls decided they really needed to get together and sing. They started doing covers of songs, entered a competition, and became SASS – the girl vocal trio.
SASS entered the music scene with a bang, besting the competition to win the coveted Grand Champions of the World - Best Vocal Group title at the World Championships of Performing Arts in Hollywood, Los Angeles. The trio represented Singapore amongst participants from 55 countries around the world, and brought in Singapore's first Grand Champion win.
Inspired by groups like Little Mix, Destiny’s Child and En Vogue, SASS hopes to create a harmonious, yet edgy new sound of their own.
THE BOY WHO ASKED TOO MANY QUESTIONS
Runtime: 16 minutes
Directed by: Alec Tok
Charles asks Ms Tan, his biology teacher one too many question. She thinks he is trying to be difficult. He thinks she is very harsh. Charles finds himself gagged and bound; and asked to stand outside the classroom. He does not know why.
Alec filmed TBWATMQ on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day in 1999 with a S$5,000 grant from the Singapore Film Commission. It premiered at the Singapore International Film Festival 2000 held at the Goethe Institute. He then left for the US to study at the prestigious Yale School of Drama and in 2003 became the first Asian to graduate with a Masters of Fine Arts from its Directing programme. He stayed on in the US and his theatre work has been seen by audiences in New York, San Francisco, Hong Kong and Shanghai. His first feature film A BIG ROAD held its World Premiere at the SIFF 2009 where it was nominated for a Best Asian Film Award. Alec also participated in GE2011, standing in Bukit Panjang SMC on the SDP platform.
A brief Q&A after will be entertained :)
