MENTORS

YASU TANAKA

“My own conception of storytelling and filmmaking have been carved from my experiences in 3 culturally diverse and unique entertainment industries…here in Malaysia, my country of birth Japan, and, the epicentre of filmmaking, Hollywood. This rich palette serves me well when looking for new, original, bold, and exciting ideas that have universal appeal.”

BEA TANAKA

“My foray into creative industry from education background was very significant for me, as I approached it from a learning state of mind. I began to observe, to absorb and learnt to see the Malaysian film industry from a foreigner’s perspective and fell in love with the potential of it. The world is our oyster and we must strive to create an identity for our nation.”
