Tony Lam is a freelance producer, independent filmmaker and screenwriter, who lives in Los Angeles, California.
After graduating valedictorian of his high school, Tony went on to study literature and history at Georgetown University, where he graduated magna cum laude and Phi Beta Kappa with honors in both majors. Tony also has two Masters degrees from Yale and the University of Michigan. He has received over a dozen merit scholarships and awards, including a full-tuition scholarship at Yale, the Andrew W. Mellon Fellowship, and the Foreign Language and Area Studies Fellowship (a rare three-time recipient in three separate languages).
In 1997, Tony’s life became the subject of a documentary called MOVING POPULATION: New Gold Mountain, produced by Radio Television Hong Kong (RTHK), filmed in three countries, and broadcast primetime in Hong Kong, Southern China, and Macau. This experience gave Tony his first exposure to the fascinating craft of filmmaking.
