Jin founded Second Avenue Productions to fill a gap in the documentation of contemporary Asian artists and society through film. Through these films, a wider audience can encounter the hidden stories of artists and their art in rapidly urbanising Asia. With experience in Singapore and the UK, Jin is well placed to intimately understand the changing social, political and economic landscapes from both a local and international perspective. Jin was previously a broadcast journalist with Singapore Broadcasting Corporation (now MediaCorp) and a dealer in contemporary Asian art.
