Mini Bio (1)
Self-taught filmmaker Ray Arthur Wang (pronounced Wong) is a director/ writer/ producer/ composer.
Raised in Livermore, California and now a resident of Las Vegas, Nevada, he was first intrigued by the art of filmmaking at the age of 11. Moved by La Nouvelle Vague (The French New Wave) of the 1950s-60s, RAW's artistic vision is inspired chiefly by the work of Stanley Kubrick, Ingmar Bergman, and Wong Kar-Wai. In 2004, he founded Raw Power Productions, Inc. with one main mission: social change.
No stranger to acclaim, RAW has received accolades for his winning performances in numerous piano competitions, including a solo performance with full orchestra at the age of 10. He holds a Ph. D. and M.S. in Electrical Engineering from Stanford University, a B.S. in Electrical Engineering and Computer Science with music minor from UC Berkeley, and the 1999 National Electrical Engineering Honor Society's Most Outstanding EE Student in the Nation Award.
Having traveled to 42 states in the U.S. and 57 countries all over the world, RAW finds his greatest passion in making movies. From his Wikipedia page: "On one of many stops on the film festival circuit, his feature directorial debut 'Carma' was declared 'Best Picture' and Wang 'Indie Auteur of the Year' for his work as director, writer, producer, composer, and actor on his supernatural thriller. 'Wang is a director to watch,' claims Film Threat... For the second project of the team that was invited to the Sundance Producers' Conference in 2006, Wang is a producer on Michealene Cristini Risley's award-winning human rights documentary and pioneer in online film fund raising, 'Tapestries of Hope', which stars Betty Makoni, one of the Top 10 CNN Heroes of 2009." Taken from conception to distribution entirely digitally, the supernatural thriller "Carma" is the first feature film in history distributed exclusively over the Internet via a revolutionary DVD-quality pay-per-view streaming system.
