Born in China, Song develops his lifelong passion for visual arts from painting into an academic pursuit at American Film Institute in Film Directing. This comprehensive approach to arts allowed him to incorporate the multifaceted and interconnected disciplines into his filmmaking.

During college, Song wrote and directed LOOKING, a contemporary love story told in first person POV, which was showcased at the Hong Kong International Film Festival.Later at AFI, he directed four short films, including his thesis film ALOUD, about a silent choirboy’s journey to find his voice. It received the EFILM post-production grant and is now being submitted to festivals. 

As a young filmmaker who has worked in both Asia and the United States, Song developed his unique cross-culture perspective and a particular interest in character driven dramas that reveal everyday sadness. Currently, he is developing his first feature, PLUM RAIN, a period drama about a family affected by China’s one-child policy.
