    As a filmmaker, I’m bringing what I can from the real world into the Unreal world" Ngyuen-Anh Ngyeun

    Nguyen-Anh Nguyen is a filmmaker based out of Montreal

    Nguyen-Anh began his career as a dentist before focusing on filmmaking. In 2008 he co-founded GreenGround Productions, an award-winning production house. He is also a co-founder at CineGround Media, the third largest camera rental and post-production house in Montreal. He created and helmed the company’s post-production division from 2010-2016.

    As a film director, he broke into the science-fiction scene with the viral hit THE AKIRA PROJECT (2014) followed by acclaimed short films TEMPLE (2016) & HYPERLIGHT (2018), all of which garnered over 12M views online and received widespread international acclaim. He has also directed projects as a brand ambassador for Blackmagic Design and Manfrotto. He recently founded Second Tomorrow Studios, where he uses all of his combined expertise to create world-class science-fiction projects. He is currently developing the feature version of TEMPLE with writer Nicolas Billon (ELEPHANT SONG, X COMPANY), with the support of Telefilm Canada and The Harold Greenberg Fund, and the cyberpunk animated series, BABIRU, with writer Philip Gelatt (EUROPA REPORT, LOVE, DEATH & ROBOTS) for which Epic Games financed the pilot episode.

    in Anh’s words he is a “filmmaker bringing what I can from the real world into the Unreal world“ and this episode is full of insights into this process as Anh explains how and why he is making this transition and the opportunities - and challenges - realtime filmmaking presents. 

    This episode is presented in partnership with Epic Games and Unreal Engine.
