a little something about us

“Some stories, small, simple ones about setting out on adventures or people doing wonders, tales of miracles and monsters, have outlasted all the people who told them, and some of them have outlasted the lands in which they were created.” Neil Gaiman

We are a group of entrepreneurial producers with a mission to produce outstanding content for Cinema and Television. Our backgrounds are strong in creative development, financing and production.

Lucan Toh

A chance introduction with the inimitable Producer, Elliot Kastner, inspired Lucan to follow his passion for film making.  Lucan founded Holland Park Pictures in 2009, where he co-wrote and produced the critically acclaimed short film ‘BABYSITTING’, starring Romola Garai and Dan Stevens.  Lucan then went on to produce his first feature film, ‘HAVING YOU’, starring Anna Friel, Romola Garai, Andy Buchan and Phil Davis.  The film won Best Feature Film at the L.E.S* Film Festival 2013 and the Audience and Jury award at the Nantes British Film Festival 2013.

Lucan co-founded Wigwam Films in 2012, with the intention to acquire and develop unique properties that appeal to specific audiences.  In 2013, Lucan produced BEFORE I DISAPPEAR, based on the Academy Award® winning short film, ‘CURFEW’, from writer/director Shawn Christensen.  The film won the Narrative Feature Audience Award at SXSW 2014.

Christopher Eoyang

Christopher Eoyang

Christopher Eoyang is a nomadic US citizen working in international finance, largely in obscure parts of the world. His transition to film came naturally from his interests in nurturing uncommon talent in unassuming places, and extensive experience in global arbitrage. As technology creates a new equilibrium in film distribution, he believes content will be further elevated in the entertainment value chain. He has degrees from Columbia University and INSEAD.
