About Night Owl Cinematics

Night Owl Cinematics (NOC), founded by Ryan Tan and Sylvia Chan in 2013, is a production company based in Singapore. NOC started off with the production of comedy videos on Youtube, and given the popularity of its Youtube channel with more than 800,000 subscribers as well as over 234 million cumulative views, many corporations have tasked NOC with the production of corporate and sponsored videos as well as social media campaigns as they see the potential in reaching out to the public through non-traditional media. Our notable clients include the Health Promotion Board, Singapore Police Force, and the Media Development Authority Singapore.

Ryan Tan

Ryan Tan

FOUNDER / DIRECTOR / FOOD KING

A stable foundation is something that every great building needs, and lucky for NOC, we've got Ryan. Founder, cinematographer and art director, Ryan's role in NOC goes beyond the seemingly helpless yet well-loved Xi Guay Ong. In fact, behind this on-screen persona, Ryan is revered for being a fiercely loyal and meticulous leader whose artistic sensibilities render him a perfectionist at heart. While bystanders and naysayers tend to find fault in his uncompromising stance, particularly so when it involves his values, it is precisely this penchant for excellence that gives rise to the high-quality videos that the audience just can't get enough of. Also the undisputed Food King in Singapore, his food recommendations are one that you should definitely not miss, given his exquisite taste buds.

Sylvia Chan

CO-FOUNDER / ACTRESS / HOST

She is the de-facto, or some may call it, OG Xiao Bitch in Singapore. Co-founder of NOC and proud wife of Ryan, Sylvia is a competent leader whose selfless contributions brought NOC to its heights today. A jack of all trades, Sylvia delves not only into a series of marketing and PR-related issues for NOC, but she is also manager to her talents-turned-friends and director for numerous NOC videos. Also a naturally witty and versatile individual, she partakes in a myriad of on-screen roles such as acting and hosting, which often leaves an indelible impression on its viewers. One striking feature that makes Sylvia such an outstanding online personality is her ability to remain true and genuine amidst the influencer 'rat race' within her industry. Her role as the President of NOC Community Club is strong testament of her sincerity as a person, as she engages in a great deal of volunteer work along with NOC members outside of her busy schedule. With an unflinching desire to remain true to herself both online and offline, Sylvia is someone worth looking up to in this day and age.
