Aaron Mak was born in Singapore, and migrated to Melbourne, Australia at the age of 10. He studied theatre and film at Monash University (Australia), and then studied abroad at The University of Exeter (UK), making diverse short films along the way such as the horror short, House Sitting (2016) and the comedic short, Coffee Run (2016). Shortly after graduating in 2017, he began his own film company - Melbourne Film Studio - at the age of 21.
Since then, he has collaborated with the Australian rock band, Cynation, to create projects such as the award-winning music documentary, "RISE: From Independence to Immortality" (2019), and the award-winning Official Music Video, "Cynation: Go Louie Go" (2018). Both of these films received Official Selections across film festivals in Los Angeles, New York, London and Melbourne. He has recently made his return to horror with his latest short film, “The Seventh Month” (2019).
