Shyan Tan, Director of Photography, draws an acute aesthetic, influenced by his roots that run deep in Singapore soil. This is brought out in several local projects and similarly so with collaborations overseas. His works span across short films, telemovies and TV commercials, both locally and internationally.
Stylistically, his work is inspired by the often overlooked and raw beauty of emotions, and this curiosity to understand what moves people is carried into a selection of narrative pieces.
With that, he is chosen to participate in the prestigious Golden Horse Academy in 2017, furthermore, he has also won the Best Cinematography awards for his docu-drama works at the Pradhana Vizha in both 2014 and 2016, and the Lumos Awards for Best Cinematography at the prestigious Asian Film Academy in Busan, South Korea.
His short films《JAY》directed by Taiwanese Director, Chen Sze Wei has won the Alternative Spirit Award LGBTQ in the 2019 Rhode Island International Film Festival, and《Areola Borealis》directed by Wee Lilin, was also in competition in the prestigious Shortshorts Film Festival 2018 in Tokyo.
