As Managing Director of Kelvin Sng Productions, which specialises in film production, film education and artiste management, Kelvin's belief in nurturing new talents sees him signing on promising actors under his belt including Maia Lee, whose acting career was launched as a result. Kelvin also produced Chai Yee Wei's award-winning short film My Blue Heaven, which was screened internationally in several film festivals. As Executive Producer, he has produced The Forgotten, a mid-length film produced by Eusoff Works, the film production arm of Eusoff Hall at the National University of Singapore (NUS) and Steadfast, another mid-length action film boasting an international cast directed by newcomers David Liu and Linus Chen.

He has also worked closely with various organizations and institutions such as Singapore Media Academy, the Substation, Canon Singapore and the British Council to support and promote filmmaking in Singapore. He has curated film screenings for several organisations including Toronto-Singapore Film Festival to help promote local films abroad.

Kelvin’s debut feature film Taxi! Taxi! starring top comedians Mark Lee and Gurmit Singh, was released theatrically in both Singapore and Malaysia in January 2013. It was the second highest grossing Singapore film after Jack Neo's Ah Boys to Men 2 for 2013. Besides being a box office success, Taxi! Taxi! was also the first official entry from Singapore at the ASEAN International Film Festival and Awards 2013 held in Sarawak, where it also won the Special Jury Award. Besides working on a number of upcoming feature film projects, Kelvin is also an accomplished filmmaking and acting coach, and he lead a team of industry practitioners to coach and discover talents in the area of film, video, media and theatre.
