We make short films and documentaries that make you think about your world and yourself. We are based in Singapore, and work everywhere.

Ashima Thomas

Producer and CEO

I spent ten years in TV news before deciding that I didn’t just want to tell stories about the hardships and tragedy in our world, I wanted to play a part in ... making it a better place. I believe that the universe listens, and around the same time, I was approached by a non-profit group that tells stories to help people who are doing good. I fell in love with telling the kinds of stories that can create change, and now, I want to do it for as many people and organisations as I can.

Anshul Tiwari

Creative Director, Film

After nearly 8 years in a banking career, I decided to quit and make films. Being a filmmaker was easy. Making a career of it was not. I learned the ... craft by working with documentary filmmakers, travelling extensively and making short films for organisations and corporations. In 2011, I came to Singapore and met the people who wanted my craft, who wanted my talent. We made many short documentaries telling stories of people who made a difference in this world. I found my visual and narrative style, and I found my career. I didn’t want to lament on the problems of the world. I wanted solutions. I wanted change. And so, Warrior9 happened.

Abhi Kumar

Chief Creative Director

I’ve wanted to write for as long as I could remember. The ability to create a world with passionate, feeling characters and a powerful narrative ... has eluded many a writer, including myself. I remember the moment when it came together for me during one of my first staged productions - a fully realized world, with living, breathing characters looking back at me. It was alive...and it was mine. I haven’t looked back since. I’ve written for the stage and TV, and am now, through Warrior9, working on multiple projects including a sci-fi TV pilot, a short film, and a full length feature.

Passionate about film and its power to transform us, Warrior9 was created by a scriptwriter, a producer and a filmmaker because of a shared belief that “changing the world frame by frame” is not only possible, it is imperative.

Our latest project is The PhoenIX. It’s an animated sci-fi series in virtual reality (VR). Watch a 2D teaser and read more about it at the link below. We’ll release the teaser in VR later this year.

We also help organisations to communicate the intangible aspects of their impact through honest and authentic video stories. We believe that these qualities hold the greatest power to move audiences.
