With an eye for creating engaging and visually appealing moments out of everyday situations, Aaron’s strength lies in exploring character development and story to create a strong sense of feeling in his work. He also revels in rich colour palettes and production design to create moods that are emotive and resonant.
Aaron’s work spans TVCs, music videos, and filmmaking. In 2006, Aaron took part in a filmmaker residency programme with The Objectifs Centre for Filmmaking & Photography in Singapore. His short film FENG (WIND) was created as part of this residency and was awarded ‘Best Short Film’ at the Kuala Lumpur International Film Festival.
His minimalist approach to narrative, and passion for understated human drama has proved successful on the international film festival circuit with his numerous short films screening at over 80 festivals, and international sales. His debut feature film, CANOPY, premiered at the 2013 Toronto International Film Festival Festival and has since been selected to screen in competition at Busan International Film Festival, Rotterdam International Film Festival, Taipei Film Festival, Shanghai International Film Festival and Abu Dhabi Film Festival (where it was honoured with the ‘Special Jury Mention’).
