James talk about how tiny editing can massively change how we feel about a particular clip.
Originally trained in graphic designing, his creative skills has led film director and writer James Lee to traverse far on the reel roads. He ventured into video filmmaking after he began acting and directing theater plays, and has appeared in Amir Muhammad’s Lips to Lips and played the estranged father in Liew Seng Tat’s award-winning Flower in The Pocket.
In 2001 he directed his first feature film, Snipers, followed by Ah Beng Returns in the same year. His film Beautiful Washing Machine won the Best Asean Feature Award and FIPRESCI Prize (International Federation of Film Critics) in the 2005 Bangkok International Film Festival. The movie also received rave reviews from The Village Voice and Variety. He also won the Best Asean Feature again at the Bangkok International Film Festival with his love trilogy Before We Fall in Love Again.
