David Lin

DIRECTOR

Bio

David’s cross-cultural upbringing gave a unique foundation to craft a personal filmic style that is inherently Western, yet distinctively Asian.

David’s commercial film experience spans a decade shooting projects for global brands such as Audi, Kohler, Hua Wei and General Motors. He also directed Identity, a short film that received special nominations at the inaugural Hangzhou International Film Festival, and won for Chevy Equinox RS “House Of Horror” at the Top Digital Awards. In 2018, completed global campaigns for Hua Wei x Audi and Kohler.

He credits screenwriter Wang Hui-Ling (Ang Lee’s preferred screenwriter and Golden Horse Award winner) as his biggest inspiration and had the fortunate opportunity to meet her through family friends. Since their chance meeting, she has taught David the key points of story telling and continues to mentor him along his film-making journey.

When David isn’t shooting, he is training, traveling, scuba diving or exploring new techniques in photography, and his favorite – loving on rescue dogs.
