Film Director/Founder Director’s Think Tank, Malaysia
Film director, Founder of Director’s Think Tank Malaysia, DTT Singapore, & DTT Indonesia
To borrow an aphorism, Rajay’s career is split into BC and AD. Before Children and After Diapers.
Now in his AD years, Rajay makes a fulfilling career out of making sure his 3 children and 4 rescued dogs grow up with care, support and happiness.
But in between the feeds and the wipes, he also found time to break the Directors Think Tank Group into Asia’s Top 10 production companies.
To spearhead growth in Asia, he negotiated a joint venture with the largest production group in Japan, Aoi Pro Japan - the first in Malaysia to attempt such a feat.
Under his leadership, Director’s Think Tank was ranked amongst the TOP 10 production houses across Asia for Campaign Brief’s The Work, and was recently awarded Production House of the Year at Malaysia’s Kancils awards 2018. Think Tank Indonesia also won production house of the year at Citra Pariwara 2018.
He works tirelessly on directing commercials that have won accolades across the globe, with wins at Cannes, One Show, Adstars, Spikes, Adfest and Kam Fan.
He judged at Adfest, Spikes, Adstars, Kancils, the Ciclope Awards and also BMW Shorties Malaysia.
He worked relentlessly to up the game for many high profile campaigns for Petronas F1, Glenlivet, Malaysia Airlines, Sony, Guinness, Google, and Mitsubishi.
And he still builds custom motorbikes through his custom bike shop - Beautiful Machines. One of their custom creations, ‘Monster’ became the first Malaysian-made bike to be featured in the Yokohama Hot Rod and Custom Show, as well as international motorbike publications from France, Italian and Australia.
So, you’d be mistaken for thinking that his new career path has slowed him down in any way.
