David Shiyang Liu began his creative career early in life. He wrote his first masterpiece of fiction at age seven during science class about anthropomorphic volcanos destroying the world and enslaving human beings. (His mother still keeps that story in her drawer.)
These days Dave works as a commercial director, and his work garners praise from more than just his mum. His short “4444” took out both the Audience Choice Award and Special Mention Prize at the 2005 Singapore Shorts Film Festival. His honours project “5 Films” achieved even greater heights, winning Best Cinematography at the 22nd Singapore International Film Festival, and Best Editing at the 2009 Singapore Short Film Awards. The film has since screened at a number of international festivals including the 2009 Cannes Short Film Corner.
Dave currently divides his time between Singapore and Melbourne. He is represented by KICK KICK PUNCH for music videos in Australia, and he is currently wrapping up his first music video for KKP.
