“The one thing about freelancers, because you do everything yourself, means you are marketing yourself. If you're stuck in a project, most of the time your brain just focuses on what you're doing, and you forget about your networking, your marketing. So, in a sense, freelancers, as good as it sounds, you have your flexible hours, you'd be surprised to know that you actually sleep very little. In fact, you do a lot of work, sometimes more than people who are working in offices or have regular jobs.”

Alex Oh, a film composer, producer, and pianist, with more than a decade of experience, is one of Singapore's most prolific and versatile film composer. His latest project is A Simple Wedding, a romantic comedy about a bride having cold feet at her wedding. In this episode we speak to Alex about his freelancing career, from starting out in Shanghai to establishing himself as a pioneer in the Singapore film industry and how he recently pursued further studies to become a better film composer.
