Born to a musical family in Shanghai. Due to her passion for film production, she gave up a good career as a sports brand marketing manager and became an independent documentary filmmaker, founding LP Films in 2002.
Over the past 16 years, what started out as three passionate young artists with a singular vision, has gradually developed into an international team with a wide range of complementary skills including creativity, planning, directing, filming, post-production, and overseas co-production. Coming from a branding marketing background, Luo Tong has a unique ability to understand the needs of clients from the perspective of Party A, and quickly identify the most suitable creative solutions. She has produced and directed numerous commercials, corporate videos, event videos, and award-winning documentaries. She has also worked extensively with overseas media organizations including APTN, BBC, ITV, NPR, APM, Discovery Channel and National Geographic Channel as China co-producer.
Her film works as a producer include A Farewell Song (winner of Special Jury Prize for Documentary, 2007 Syracuse International Film Festival) and The Poseidon Project. She produced and directed the short film Finding Bunny Girl (winner of Guangnian Prize at 2013 Beijing Short Film Festival), and the web series High Spirits (2014), which was distributed via Youku, Tencent and iQIYI. In 2017, she returned to short film as producer of The Killing Game, which screened at several international festivals and won a selection of awards. She is currently producer on The Six (2019), an eagerly anticipated documentary about Titanic’s Chinese passengers.
