Why should a Singaporean writer feature local content?
Here's a small segment of a talk I gave on the 20th Feb 2010. It's a seminar series called "All In! Young Writers' Festival".
I was given 30 minutes to talk about my experience as a comic book artist/publisher.
I feel that featuring local content and environment are important for Singaporean creators. All the best works in the world featured very localized settings and universal themes. This segment is titled "Why Feature Local Stuff"?
My old friend Jerry Hinds, President of the Association of Comic Artists Singapore (ACAS) shared the one-hour space with me.
