A Brooklyn transplant by way of his native China, Bing is a documentary filmmaker who adores cinéma vérité and loves to investigate topics relating to family, communication and identity. His self-produced and directed feature debut, “The Ability Exchange”, acclaimed as “a one-man band empathy engine” by Indiewire, explores disability and inclusion in an intimate American college classroom and beyond. Beyond directing his own projects, he is also known for his editing and production skills which have been featured in an impressive portfolio of powerful films. Examples include his editorial work on both the labor rights exposé “Complicit” and Fusion’s GLAAD-nominated TV documentary “The Naked Truth: China Queer” and his role as both creative producer and cameraman for Doris Yeung’s racial docudrama “The Ugly Model” and as an associate producer of Ursula Liang’s sports doc “9-Man”. Most recently, he worked on post-production of Nanfu Wang and Lynn Zhang’s Sundance-winning film “One Child Nation” as well as Hao Wu’s SXSW-winning film “People’s Republic of Desire” and for the past two years has been developing a new project titled “LOUD Love”, a tender probe into parenting, growth and its occasional hurdles, epitomized by a gay deaf couple with hearing twin children in New York. Finally, Bing’s freelance commercial work in video arts has given him the opportunity to serve a broad range of clients including the Guggenheim Museum, Shearwater Films, the Sign Language Center, and others.
Bing graduated from New York University with an M.A. in Cinema Studies from Tisch School of the Arts and an advanced certificate in Culture and Media from the Anthropology Department. He studied journalism and advertising at Fudan University in Shanghai for his undergraduate studies.
