MEET THE CREW
"If you think you are too small to make a difference, try sleeping with a mosquito"
- Dalai Lama
Born and raised in L.A to parents from Hong Kong, I've always had an interest in cultures and how people lived. As this curiosity grew, I travelled more and met extraordinary people around the world, hearing their stories empowered me to make a difference. I wanted to give the voiceless a voice. There are a lot of hate going on in the world, but there is also a lot of compassion as well. I want to promote this compassion and hope that I could change the world for the better, even if it's a small difference.

As a Korean and living most of my life in Vietnam, I've grown up with the interest in Music and Creating arts. I started the journey of videography with short films that would benefit the society by raising awareness on social issues. My goal is to show the unseen and the unheard, and empower them. My ultimate goal is to create documentaries, with the belief that a work with great stories from people with warm hearts can change this world into a more understanding place.
Tobias began his career as a multimedia producer at The Wall Street Journal in Hong Kong. He worked with reporters across the APAC region to write, produce, and edit documentaries and video content. After his time at The WSJ, Tobias started Reflex Productions, a boutique creative agency serving the production needs of clients such as LEGO, Riot Games (League of Legends), and DJI. He directed and produced a feature-length doc, “1000 Hands of the Guru”.
The film premiered at the Asian American International Film Festival and screened at film festivals and museums across the world in 5+ countries and is now streaming online.
I am a music composer based in Seoul and Dublin, Ireland.
With a MA in scoring for film and visual media and nearly 300 composed music and worked for numerous international projects in collaboration with Sonic Gate Studios. I am now creating the OST for Breaking Isolation.
As a composer, this is a feeling that I can relate to Hikikomoris who live more in their heads than their bodies. Composition, being an art so closely tied with emotion, often requires one to journey through a wide spectrum of thoughts and emotions in order for the creativity to unfold.
I have faith that many Hikikomoris possess such creativity, but simply have not had the fortunate spark yet.
