Stefanus Ian is a freelance multimedia journalist for Agence-France Presse (AFP) and co-founder of Run and Gun Media, a multi-platform media company that creates content for news agencies.
Among all the stories that Ian has worked on, the most unforgettable one was the assignment to cover the passing of Singapore’s founding prime minister Lee Kuan Yew. “We were all on standby overnight, and when it happened, I rushed down to the Istana immediately to provide updates to the team in the bureau,” said Ian, who added that it was a privilege to cover the various news events that unfolded following Mr Lee’s passing.
During his professional internship at AFP, Ian got the opportunity to shoot high-profile figures such as Star Wars creator George Lucas.
Ian’s company, Run and Gun media, which he operates with two other batchmates, Andre He (CS’15) and Jeremy Ho (CS’15) , has produced multimedia pieces for local media outlets such as Yahoo Singapore and Channel NewsAsia.
