Peter Wong graduated as an audio engineer and multimedia designer. He started his career as a music producer in 2001. Four years later, Peter established Nexus Creative, a multimedia agency. It was in Nexus Creative that Peter was able to freely experiment with bold ideas and exercised his skills in visual and aural design. His creations eventually earn him several international design awards.
As his core background is into music and sound, over the past decade Peter has written and scored music for movies, released two music albums and produced music for Discovery, Crime Investigation Channel, ASTRO, Tourism Malaysia and many more.
He continued to amass a set of skills, making him known for his versatility in the industry, from photography, video editing, sound design, art direction and in 2010, he ventured into film making. He debuted as a feature director in 2016 for THE SPIRAL and subsequently in 2018 it was selected in competition at International Horror and Sci-Fi Film Festival 2019 and in Berlin Sci-Fi Film Festival 2019 as well.
He joined ACE Pictures in 2017. Primarily as film financiers, Peter analyze, select and then recommend screenplays pitched to him to be funded by ACE. Working closely with producers and filmmakers, Peter and his team take proactive roles in shaping each project into perfection. Within less than two years since ACE Pictures ventured into US:
