A regular collaborator with director We Jun, he was the screenwriter for the short film Coaster presented by Tiger Beer, mentored by Baltasar Kormákur (Everest). In 2021, Benji participated at the Locarno Open Doors Producer’s Lab and received the Rotterdam Lab Award.

Kinovisuals – Malaysia

Kinovisuals is a partnership forged as the result of creative collaboration between filmmakers We Jun and Lim Benji. Our company was founded on the principle of delivering the highest production value on whatever limited resources that are available to us, by utilising our creative instinct and resourcefulness derived from our team’s collective technical knowledge and experience as film professionals in the fields of advertising, digital branded content, corporate documentaries, as well as the years before that when we were budding filmmakers within the local indie scene.

Over the years, we’ve had the honour and privilege to contribute both creatively and professionally to exciting corporate projects for big brands such as Netflix, Volkswagen, Ikea, Photobook, Fitness First, Malaysia Airlines, Uber, Panasonic, Toyota, Ajinomoto, etc.
