Tiger Ji - NYC, United States

Tiger is a writer / director from Hong Kong.

He first gained recognition at age 19 with his award-winning short, WUHAN DRIVER, which caught the attention of EP Jonathan Sanger (VANILLA SKY, ELEPHANT MAN). His subsequent short film, DEATH & RAMEN, stars comedian Bobby Lee and actor Matt Jones from BREAKING BAD, and premiered at the Palm Springs Shortfest. It was picked up by Ouat Media for distribution, and is currently in the festival circuit.

Tiger graduated from NYU Gallatin School of Individualized Study, where he majored in philosophy. He has also studied under acclaimed filmmakers like Ruben Ostlund (TRIANGLE OF SADNESS, THE SQUARE), and Lucrecia Martel (LA CI√ČNEGA), and is an alumnus of the 2022 Short to Feature Lab led by Jim Cummings (THUNDER ROAD). Inspired by Hong Kong cinema, his films fuse Eastern and Western sensibilities, and blend the absurd with the serious.

He is based in New York, where he currently develops his first feature adaptation for DEATH & RAMEN.
