From a young age, I, Brian L. Tan "BLT" dreamed about being the first Asian James Bond (see pic above), complete with cheesy tag line ("Tan, double Oh-Tan") and license to thrill. When age and a motorcycle accident made that nigh-on impossible, I decided to settle for the next best thing: Becoming an action director.
For awhile, I lived a double life; working on studio features such as Tron: Legacy, X-Men First Class, Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, and Jack the Giant Slayer by day, whilst pursuing my own independent films, commercials, and documentaries by night. I've had some successes, including a few nationally broadcast commercials, a Top 20 finish in HBO's Project Greenlight, a great client roster, and a few festival wins; all of which have allowed me to quit my studio job and pursue directing full time.
Since then, my directing has taken me around the world, to more than 30 nations. In my travels, I've had the chance to see first hand the ideas and elements that inspire, console, entertain, and unite people the world over. And that is exactly what I aim to do; tell stories that reach across borders and ignite peoples' passions and imaginations. The most human stories are often the most explosive, which is exactly how I like to tell them.
I can be contacted directly via this site, but if you want to be formal about it, I can also be reached via Nick Lafferty at CAA for scripted inquiries or Andy Stabile at ICM for unscripted.
