KODE WELCOME NICOLEE TSIN.
11 October 2022

When people say "I love your work!" to filmmaker Nicolee Tsin, they refer to her commercials, her music videos, or her online clothing brand, Fool of a Kind. Some, like Kode, refer to all three at once.

The company has added Tsin to their UK roster, pleasing executive producer Nathan Killham no end: "I'm really delighted that Nicolee has joined the Kode family. She's a hugely talented director with a lot to offer, which is clear from the rich and captivating storytelling and striking visuals within her films."



Born in Hong Kong and now based in London, Tsin fuses Eastern and Western influences as much as possible. Once viewers have exhausted her reel, they can check out her range of t-shirts that celebrate Cantonese slang. In the meantime, here's what she has to say about her new home.

"I'm really excited for my new journey with Kode," Tsin says, "as everything they create comes from the heart. I am thrilled to be surrounded by an amazing team and be in the company of a roster of directors I respect."
