Ran Zhang 張然 is a Hong Kong based filmmaker with an international background. During his formative years in Asia, he discovered a passion for visual storytelling after receiving an old hand-me-down camcorder for his 13th birthday. He would spend his evenings and weekends teaching himself the craft.

An avid affection for international cinema, music videos, and commercials brought him to study film production in Los Angeles, where he gained experience working on professional sets and directed a number of music videos and short films.

Ran holds multiculturalism in high regard as part of his body of work. He hopes to transcend the boundaries of culture to find a potent, universal message in narratives both local and foreign.
