About Jacky (a.k.a. TheBoyWhoCriedAction)

Singaporean filmmaker Jacky Lee established TheBoyWhoCriedAction in 2010 after graduating from Swinburne School of Technology in Melbourne with a B.A. in Film & Television. His films are often visually vibrant with colourful characters, a catchy soundtrack and offbeat humour. 

Jacky’s latest short film Sunshine was an official selection at the Unofficial Google+ Film Festival 2013 and Short Shorts Film Festival & Asia 2014. It was also awarded the Silver Remi Award at the 47th WorldFest-Houston International Film Festival and Best Sound at the 5th Singapore Short Film Awards. 

Jacky’s love for film began at age 17 after watching Wong Kar Wai’s Chungking Express while in design school. The film’s raw energy and charm captivated him and opened his eyes to the wide range of possibilities of the film medium. Chungking Express remains one of his favourite films to date and still serves as a constant source of inspiration. Also amongst his favourite films are films by Wes Anderson and Michel Gondry, which he admires for their individuality and highly stylized visuals.
