Eugene Tan
Creative Director / Editor / Actor
www.imdb.com/name/nm2372339

Eugene graduated from the University of London (External) programme conducted by the Singapore Institute of Management (SIM) in 1998. He was awarded the degree of Bachelor of Science in Computing and Information Systems with 2nd Class Honours (Upper Division). Eugene worked as an IT trainer for 2 years before setting up a cyber cafe business.

It was during his time running the cyber cafe that he met many customers that encouraged him to pursue his true passion, film. This was after they had seen his music video style montage of the 2004 Singapore Airshow's flying aerobatic displays. Eugene made the watershed decision to go back to studies in 2004 (at the age of 32) and graduated with an Advanced Diploma in Film Production (ADFP) from the Ngee Ann Polytechnic's School of Film and Media Studies (FMS) in 2006, with a major in Producing. He aspires to be an all-rounded filmmaker having experienced crewing in almost all the production positions. He is comfortable both behind as well as in front of the camera having acted in numerous short films, TV serials and 3 feature films to-date. Eugene strongly believes that in order to communicate and work well with actors, he must first put himself in their position and understand the techniques and methods of their craft.

Eugene was a founding director of Kelvin Sng Productions Pte Ltd (formerly Al Films Pte Ltd). Eugene left the directorship of that company in May 2009 and has since shifted his focus to the area of scriptwriting and directing. Setting up 16:9 Productions in October of 2009 was the first step in this direction. Eugene has since directed dozens of corporate, music and promotional videos to-date. He hopes to one-day direct an internationally successful box office hit that's 100% Singapore-made.
