Biography: My name is Lloyd Koh, and filmmaking is my passion.
I was born and raised in Singapore. My parents did not have the privilege of attending college, but they taught me the importance of being resourceful, having focus and working hard. I graduated from the School of the Arts with an Excellence Award in the IB Diploma and I am currently a Global Leadership Scholar at Yale-NUS College in Singapore. During my two-year conscription, I rose the ranks to serve my nation as a Naval Officer, sailing across Asia and commanding a platoon of 40 men.
I enjoy the creative and technical process of bringing ideas to life on the big screen and hope to continue using the medium of film to touch hearts and connect minds. Over the past five years, I've honed my storytelling abilities by shooting commercials and documentaries around the world. Some of my most memorable experiences include a video journalism project in Montreal covering Cirque du Soleil’s latest show ‘Volta’ down by the Old Port, as well as directing a commercial for Singapore Airlines in Sydney in collaboration with Singapore Press Holdings.
In the future, I hope to make an impact in the global media industry at the intersection of film and business. I am excited by the possibilities of emerging technologies in storytelling and hope to be at the forefront of innovation in this domain.
