Charlie Wan is a director that believes all his work should provoke emotions from his audience whether they are commercial or passion projects. A former beauty photographer and art director in motion graphics design industry who has worked on projects including broadcast graphics for MTV, VH1, Syfy, concert visual graphics for The Rolling Stones and stage floor visual design for The Who’s Superbowl Halftime show. After over 10 years in the motion graphics design field, he leaped into the world of fashion, hair, beauty and focusing on live action and event direction. With the all-too-common late night hours in his previous post-productions life and the tiresome mentality of “fix it in post” from clients, he opts for all in-camera optical effects for his films and visual work. He loves the magic and simplicity of through-the-lens aesthetic that is not easy to be replicated with long hours of post-productions and visual effects.

Charlie resides in New York City.
