Come Fly Away With Me（随我飞翔)
Roy is a hot-tempered People’s Republic of China (PRC) immigrant who works at a 24-hour café at the airport. One night, he meets Kim, a beautiful Singaporean stewardess with a strange request for him. Through this single encounter, the two of them share an unlikely connection that will change both their perceptions of race and social statuses.
Ian is an aspiring director and production designer. His work in film began with set and costume design, steadily progressing to Art Director or Production Designer of award-winning student films. In 2013, Ian was an Art Assist on Meng Ong’s feature, “A Fantastic Ghost Wedding”, as part of his industry internship.
With writing and directing, Ian draws from and fuses real-life, metaphors and the surreal. The themes in his work include making the familiar unfamiliar and psychological obsessions with the hope of reframing perspectives. His first two films, “Lunar Theory” (2012) and “Passing” (2013), have been featured at local events and short film festivals.
Ian is also passionate about acting. Through his Minor in Drama and Performance in NIE, influences from the stage occasionally find themselves in his short films. Ian is particularly interested in integrating film and theatrical elements.
