Jaze Phua is an actor and film-maker based in Singapore. In 2019, his "Naruto-inspired Mirror Run Challenge" went viral on social media. That same year, his parody video of the Avenger's End Game (2019) trailer received praise from Mark Ruffalo and Anthony and Joseph Russo - the directors of the Hollywood film.
Before his virality, Jaze Phua has produced and directed comedy sketches, web-series and short films - some of which have won awards. Presently, he holds the position of Creative Director at Pandastic Media.
Jaze has been creating a multitude of successful viral content ever since. It's no longer merely a coincidence; he has discovered the formula for knowing what the audience likes. As a result, he recently launched an agency called Virality, aimed at providing viral vertical videos for businesses.
In his free time, he immerses himself in his newfound passion for A.I., co-founding Dear AI, a comprehensive app with powerful AI tools designed to enhance productivity. Among his other interests are Martial Arts, Singing, and Painting.
