Rey Tang is a Chicago-based writer, photographer, filmmaker, and performer. She believes that, through an intersectional understanding of media, she can one day achieve her dream of writing for television.
Rey got her start in making short films with her friends in high school. In her senior year, she won the National Medal from Scholastic Arts and Writing.
Graduating Northwestern with a degree in Radio/TV/Film, she pursued a concentration in Creative Writing for Media and Advanced Directing for the Screen. Her short films have screened in festivals such as NFMLA, Asian CineVision, CineYouth, Chicago OnScreen, and many more. Likewise, in 2022, she was selected as part of the Warner Bros. Discovery Early Career Bootcamp. Later that year, she also premiered LDR Season 1 Vol. 1, a web series about queer long distance relationships that Rey wrote, starred in, and produced. In 2023, her feature in development Back to Sixteen was selected as part of Femme Fatales fellowship Fatales Forward. Currently, she performs improv as part of Stir Friday Night and loves making portraits of people on 35mm film.
No stranger to the hustle, Rey is excited to strike out on her own and work with other like-minded passionate creatives. She’s especially excited about work that is related to trans*, queer, and POC narratives. It’s her dream to one day tell stories that honor the communities she’s a part of.https://www.reytang.com
