Meet Dalton Lai: movie buff, devoted storyteller, and a pretty good videosmith. Born from two proud Taiwanese immigrants and raised in the sticks of Ohio, Dalton grew up as a sort of rotten banana only to find his true calling in New York and most recently, the Far East, to further refine his craft (and mother tongue).

From editing to shooting to directing, he’s an unapologetic jack of all trades in the moving picture biz. At the dawn of Anomaly Shanghai when he was the sole Content Creator, Dalton edited a multitude of internal manifesto videos, captured many an event, and directed a multi-episode documentary series known as The Unreasonable – an ongoing short documentary series showcasing those who are creating progress.

While away on a brief sabbatical, he recently directed the fifth installment of China’s Next Top Model: Guys & Girls, the official Chinese version of that Tyra Banks show. Currently, in-between shooting Anomaly works and reading stuff, Dalton is wrapping up post production on a short indie flick about seduction, betrayal, and murder.
