About me

Louis Chan is a British Filmmaker and London native. Chan has been working for the past five years on projects ranging from fashion commercials to online content and short films. In 2014, Chan set up Fresh Look Films with co-founder Kobbie Kessie as a means to build up directing credits whilst continuing to learn his craft by crewing on larger scale shoots. Fresh Look clients include Unilever, Akzo Nobel, Corona, Budweiser, WeTransfer, Rankin, Hunger TV and Microsoft. In 2016, Chan completed directing his first documentary ILIA, a story about football playing Afghan refugee children in downtown Tehran, Shahr-el-Rey. ILIA premiered at the BAFTA recognised ASFF in November 2016. Focusing primarily on his filmmaking career, Chan began developing his latest short "Stationary" in partnership with the Creative England funded Encounters Film Festival: Widening the Lens mentorship programme as of March 2017. Chan is currently in post production for "Stationary" (writer/director) and has been selected for a second successive year to be part of BFI NETWORKS X BAFTA CREW, a professional network for filmmakers on their way to making their debut feature film.
