JACEN TAN - DIRECTOR
Jacen was named 'Singapore’s latest film funnyman” by The Straits Times, and is one of Singapore’s most exciting young filmmakers. In the pre-YouTube days of 2005, Jacen’s first short film, TAK GIU (KICK BALL), became a viral hit on the Internet, causing servers to crash due to overwhelming traffic. His latest short film, HOMEGROUND, was selected for the POSB Storytellers Grant in 2015. Jacen combined his love for horror-comedy and his experiences from serving in the army to make his first feature film, ZOMBIEPURA. It was selected as the opening film for Scream Asia Film Festival 2018 and has since been acquired by Contents Panda, the producer-distributor of Korean box office hit, TRAIN TO BUSAN.

JUNE GOH - HEAD OF MAKEUP
June grew up with a love for the visual arts. She used drawing and painting as an escape from her job in the food and beverage industry. Having had the opportunity to train under award-winning tattoo artist Jap Loh, June quickly developed her own niche in body painting and airbrushing. With her passion now fully stoked, she wanted to expand her portfolio by pursuing makeup and special effects. June was headhunted to be the Chief of Hair and Makeup for the Resorts World Theatre, previously known as the Festive Grand Theatre. Impressing the powers that be with her dedication and ability, June became the Head of Hair and Makeup for both Resorts World Sentosa and Universal Studios, Singapore. Her recent film credits include ZOMBIEPURA and FOLKLORE, a HBO series by Eric Khoo.
JUNIOR FOONG - ART DIRECTOR
Junior is an experienced art director based in Singapore. His most recent filmography includes AH BOYS TO MEN 3, ZOMBIEPURA, HBO's SERANGOON ROAD and 7 LETTERS. He finds great passion in building worlds from stories to create realistic environments for actors to immerse in, and perform to their fullest potential. To Junior, art direction and production design for film is about triggering the performers' five senses using colours, props and even smell. This sense of reality will translate onscreen to give audiences a magical experience of watching movies.
