Raymond Tan

An Engineer by qualification but a filmmaker at heart. Not having a media degree to his accreditation, he picked up film knowledge from ground zero and independently produced and directed a short film entitled "Wa Is for Wayang" in 2011. Raymond loves examining cross-cultural themes and ever since, he has made two other cultural-rich stories in his award-winning movie “Wayang Boy” and his latest movie “The Wayang Kids”. Between film projects, Raymond visits schools to share his passion for movies with students. He hopes his journey can be an inspiration for many young aspiring filmmakers.
