I've had the pleasure of working with Jack Tan on several projects, spanning over the past 7 years, while at Nickelodeon Asia Holdings Pte Ltd (Singapore), and currently, at BBC Worldwide (Singapore).
Jack illustrates excellent competence as a cameraman, constantly maintaining a high level of skill and proficiency, and consciously keeping abreast with top-notch technical standards in the field of television and film.
While employing a keen eye on creativity and quality, Jack also exhibits a good sense of emotionality, friendliness and diplomacy when dealing with crew, talents and clients, an important attribute that contributes to an overall successful shoot.
In short, gifted, persevering and amicable, is how I would like to describe Jack Tan.
Jack and I have worked on numerous projects over the last eight years. His talent and dedication to his work is simply outstanding, his energy and eye for details is exceptional. Each and every project he has undertaken for me has been memorable. I wish jack and his team the very best for all his future endeavours.

Many people give me a little too much credit for what I do in front of a camera, what most people do not understand is that my relationship with camera is really about my relationship with the camera person. Jack is a cameraman that knows what to do instinctively. He works hard and fast. He is organized and a good travel companion. He puts the hours in and never complains.
I've always enjoyed working with Jack and his crew for the past 6 years, he is often first on my list of priorities when I'm looking for DP. Jack is knowledgeable and keeps himself updated on the latest camera technologies. He knows his cameras very well and is competent in using a wide range of cameras, including underwater and aerial videography. He has a steady hand and a very good sense of shot composition, lighting and camera technique. He keeps an open mind on the best way to shooting a scene, and often give creative suggestions. There is lively dialogue between myself as director and Jack – this helps improve the quality of the shoot as we discuss different ways or styles.

I have worked with Jack Tan on numerous award winning programmes and I have to say if I am working anywhere in Asia he is my first choice every time. In fact he is one of the best Cameraman/DOP I have worked with anywhere in the world. He is creative with his lighting, amazingly knowledgeable with his camera's and has a great "eye" with his operating. He is always aware of time restraints and is sympathetic to budgetary demands. He is hard working and never complains.
Jack, remains as one of my most favourite and beloved DOP. If I were to make my first feature film, I will do it with him.
