Before choosing filmmaking as his vocation, Johan John made ends meet by working as an audio engineer at various recording studios and pubs in Kuala Lumpur. He started making films in 2006, after he had graduated from Akedemi Filem Malaysia and worked as a freelance sound designer and offline film editor. His first shot film ‘Tajuk Cerita’ was released to critical acclaim and was nominated for ‘Best Alternative Film’ at Anugerah Skrin 2006. Johan’s penchant for portraying taboo intimacy and edgy sensuality on film subsequently landed him jobs as director for various TV commercials, 8TV programs, Astro Ria movies and documentaries for the Astro Crime & Investigation Network. He wrote and directed his first full-length feature film ‘Andai’ in 2007 and is currently in post-production of his second feature film entitled ‘Cahaya’. The film stars Khir Rahman and Elaine Daly and is expected to release in late 2009.
