Art-college trained, Lab Ky Mo graduated from Central St. Martin’s College of Art in London with a degree in Fine Art, before winning the prestigious Carl Foreman Screenwriting Fellowship to California, in conjunction with Bafta.

Lab’s debut feature film “NINE DEAD GAY GUYS” starred Steven Berkoff and was hailed by the Observer as “The most shocking film at the Cannes Film Festival” and reviewed by one Sunday Express critic as “the most outrageous and original British film of the year.” Having caused such a stir at Cannes, it then went on to win the Audience award at the Montreal International Comedy Film Festival as well as the Best Film award at Dublin L&G Film Festival, and has been released in both the UK and the US.

Most recently, Lab has been shooting and developing films with FILM LONDON, BBC WRITERSROOM and B3 MEDIA for the UK FILM COUNCIL. Of his many short films, “MY DAD THE COMMUNIST” was singled out by the UK Film Council as one of the standout short films of that year; it was subsequently picked up by the British Council for international distribution worldwide before winning the Audience Award at the East London Film Festival. “3 MILE RADIUS” was in competition at the Soho Film Festival before winning another Audience Award at the Wirral International Film Festival.

When inbetween films, Lab hones his skills directing TV commercials. He has won two Golds at the Roses Advertising Awards with a risqué viral for Scruffs Workwear. This same viral clocked up over 2.5 million hits on youtube and proved to be an ultra successful campaign for the client boosting sales by 40%. In addition, his MTV idents were short-listed for the “Best Branding” award in Promax UK. He has worked with agencies MTV Europe, WTCS, BankshogginsO’SheaFCB, DDB, Cheetham Bell JWT & Channel 4.

In television, Lab has helmed TV series “THE CUT” for the BBC and “HOLLYOAKS” for Channel 4. He has also written and directed an 8-part reality TV series “COOKING QUEEN” for NTV Europe.

Lab’s most recent short film “JAPANESE SAMURAI SWORD” was funded and executive produced by FILM LONDON For their London Calling Plus scheme; the film will be premiering at the London Film Festival in October 2015.
