"If you think you are too small to make a difference, try sleeping with a mosquito"

BYRANT CHENG

Co-Director

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.

Co-Director

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.

YVES  MATAR

Music Composer

I am a composer currently based in Canada, with a great passion for music for film. I have known many with great passion and untapped potential who never get fulfilled because of lack of support or traumatic events. I know what it is to be engulfed in a personal bubble, to feel alone in the world. Music is often an exploration of thoughts and feelings, and with Breaking Isolation, I aim to use it to echo this vision: The struggle doesn’t define the person. Differences are no indicator of value. Listening and understanding the other are the key to creating a better world, and if we can make even the slightest difference by giving a voice to the voiceless, then our efforts will be worth it.
