Directors Think Thank Rajay Singh, to be jury member at One Screen Short Film Festival

Rajay Singh to judge One Screen Short Film Festival

Co Founder and Film Director at Directors Think Thank (AOI Pro Group) Rajay Singh will be a member of the jury at the 7th annual One Screen Short Film Festival.

One Screen Short Film Festival is the premiere short film festival that celebrates and awards filmmakers from advertising and film.

The festival pays tribute and awards film makers from both the commercial advertising and film industries.

Founded by a non-profit organization “One Club”, it focuses on all forms and aspects of short films — narrative fiction, comedy, passion projects, commercials, branded content, music videos, spec work, animation, sound, movie poster design, title sequences, etc.

The Jury is composed of leading film directors, producers, ad agency creatives and heads of production companies. Winners will be announced at the One Screen Short Film Festival awards ceremony and screening in New York in February 2019.

In what he likes to describe as his after diaper years, these days Rajay’s time is spent making sure his 3 children and 4 dogs grow up are well cared for but he also makes times to break the Directors Think Tank Group into Asia’s Top 10 production companies.

To spearhead growth in Asia, he successfully negotiated capital participation by the largest production group in Japan, AOI Pro. — the first in Malaysia to attempt such a feat.

Director’s Think Tank was ranked amongst the TOP 10 production houses across Asia for Campaign Brief’s The Work, and was recently awarded Production House of the Year at the Kancil Awards.

He has directed commercials that have won accolades across the globe, with wins at Cannes, One Show, AD STARS, Spikes, and ADFEST. He judged at ADFEST, Spikes, AD STARS, Kancil Awards and the Ciclope Festival.

He is also the man behind many successful campaigns including Petronas F1, Glenlivet, Malaysia Airlines, Sony, Guinness, Google, and Mitsubishi.

And he still builds custom motorbikes through his custom bike shop — Beautiful Machines. One of their custom creations, ‘Monster’ became the first Malaysian-made bike to be featured in the Yokohama Hot Rod and Custom Show, as well as international motorbike publications from France, Italian and Australia.

The man has hobbies and then some.
