WHO ARE WE ?
Night Owl Cinematics by Ryan Sylvia, aka NOC, was founded in Feb 2013! Our YouTube Channel – Ryan Sylvia was initially a practice platform to improve our storytelling and videography skills. Little did we know that many Singaporeans love the sense of humour in our videos!
We soon became an official comedy channel as we love being entertainers! We incidentally became the pioneers in video collaborations with friends and clients, as our close-to-heart video content and subscribers grew in numbers!
NOC celebrates the Singaporean culture – you can see tons of Hokkien, Singlish spoken in our videos! Our NOC girls have become local icons – sexy, fun and friendly girls next door. Our strong team, on and off screen, strives together as one to ensure that every video is of tip-top production value and watching them will make you laugh and cry!
Being a trailblazer in the local scene, NOC promises to continue working our asses off to keep you entertained and hopefully, inspire passionate youths! We love you! <3
