The Director

Shoban J. Raveendran

Never knowing what he really wanted to do in life, Shoban had no idea that his early years behind the scenes involving sound mixing and camera work back home in Kuala Lumpur, would soon evolve into a passion for performing arts and film making.

In his high school years, he immersed himself in acting and appeared in various youth and Christmas stage productions. In college, he was involved in many big productions including fashion shows and a musical in which he acted in as well as designed the complete sound stage for the event. In early 2008, he experimented with small film projects, and took to playing roles in promotional commercials for youth events.

‘I really don’t know why I did it’, he says. ‘I guess being behind the camera for so long always gave me a desire to find out what it was like to be in front of the lense.’

Having satisfied that particular curiosity, in London, he devoted himself to script writing and recently began directing his very first short film alongside a team of talented young people from all over the world.
