Raymond Tan - filmmaker and educator

An engineer by training but a filmmaker at heart - that is best to describe Raymond. Not having a media degree, he picked up film knowledge from ground zero and directed a short film "Wa Is For Wayang" in 2011. He loves examining cultural themes and social issues, which shows in his first two award-winning movies “Wayang Boy” and “The Wayang Kids”. The latter was shown in 20 countries and awarded Best Feature in Ojo de Pescado Festival in Chile in 2020. Raymond started providing training in schools since 2016 and have since helped many students accumulate their video works in their portfolios.
