Ken Lai brings passion, experience, and talent as our fearless leader. He is the founder and CEO of Brandoville by Lemon Sky in Indonesia, Partner at Lemon Sky Studios in Malaysia, and soon the proud founder and CEO of Brandoville Academy in Indonesia. After studying and graduating from the University of Toronto and Vancouver Film School in Canada, he started his 7-year tenure at Electronic Arts Canada, a leader in video game production internationally. As Lead Character Artist, Ken directed a team, making high-profile games such as The Sims, Medal of Honor series, NBA, FIFA, Fight Night Champion, and many more. He later became Lead Technical Artist for Capcom’s Resident Evil: Operation Racoon City.

In 2011, Ken joined as a Partner at Lemon Sky Studios. Though located in Malaysia, the studio often hires artists from Indonesia, where they continue to find great talent. With so much talent in Indonesia, Ken expanded the business in Indonesia, opening Brandoville by Lemon Sky in Jakarta.

As a partner studio delivering AAA, international standards, Brandoville Studio by Lemon Sky officially opened on July 8, 2018. Brandoville’s partner portfolio expanded quickly, with collaborations with companies including EA, Naughty Dog, Nickelodeon, Disney, Capcom, and Blizzard. In partnership, Brandoville Studio by Lemon Sky works on projects such as Warcraft III: Reforged.[1] [2] 

To keep up with the demand for artists delivering international standards in games and animation, Brandoville will soon be launching its very own international-level academic institution in Jakarta. This will accommodate the talent in Indonesia providing an opportunity to learn from industry professionals and kickstart their careers in the game and animation industry.
