Jac Min writes films and tinkers with motion design. His obsessive curiosity has led him to toy incessantly with the moving image mediums. As a result, he is a writer-director of commercials, short films, promos and music videos. He believes in crafting fresh, visceral experiences around tight, interwoven narratives.

In 2012 he co-founded Semicolon, a boutique production outfit with a focus on commercials and branded content. He currently serves as one of its directors and founding partners.

Along with fellow artist, CLOGTWO, SKLO, SHEEP and ZERO, ANTZ is part of RSCLS, a collaborative approach of styles, ideas and creative banter.
