ABOUT JEN LAI

Hello! I'm Jen and I'm really glad that you came across my website. 

 

I'm born and raised in Ipoh, Malaysia and I graduated from the University of Melbourne with a bachelor's degree in Media & Communications, I've decided to pursue my passion for films by starting my filmmaking career at Luminous Ink, a TV commercial production house as a Production Assistant. This has allowed me to gain invaluable experience and knowledge about producing, writing, directing and cinematography.

 

Currently, I'm also a freelance film director, photographer and content creator based in Kuala Lumpur. 

​

My favourite film is The Lord of The Rings trilogy. It translates into my deep passion for films. I believe in making films that allow the audience to think, relate and escape. I'm inspired to tell compelling stories by exploring different themes and complex characters.

​

I'm grateful to have travelled to several countries and explore different cultures and traditions as well as capturing precious moments along the way. I wish to follow my father's footsteps in building a library of photo albums.
