A brief history on our Managing Director & Producer Kamn Ismail

Kamn Ismail    Kamn Ismail was born on the 8th of February 1956 in a small town in Pengkalan Balak, Masjid Tanah, Melaka. Since he was in Methodist Boy School Sentul Kuala Lumpur, Kamn has developed a keen sense for art. In his teens, he worked under McMillen Film Company, an English company which join-ventured with Cathay Production to produce an English movie, "Paper Tiger". Aside from learning filming techniques in the Art Direction Department, Kamn was also a skilled cartoonist and talented comic artist at one time. Seeing the comic and cartoon industry was not going to promise a stable income at that time, Kamn heed his father's words to leave the art world. As a result, he reluctantly accepted a clerk post at the Keretapi Tanah Melayu for 17 years.
   The year 1989 was a big break for Kamn Ismail into the animation world. Syarikat Mega Universal Sdn Bhd had given their trust and supports and in return, Kamn managed to provide 2-D and 3-D presentations for launching new products for the public and private companies. Since then, his confidence for the potential of animation industry in Malaysia to develop grew further.
   In the later years, Kamn joined Kharisma Pictures (M) Sdn Bhd to form and train the first batch of animators for serial animation projects. After struggling for quite some time, Kamn finally managed to get a slot for viewing on TV1. Being among the first Malaysian animation series, Usop Sontorian became an instant hit throughout Malaysia. It took almost 3 years and 94 dedicated staffs to produce a total of 50 episodes. It proved that "Malaysia Boleh!" spirit was in them all along.
   In the year 1997, Kamn had decided to join a company, as one of its directors. 18 staffs who had worked with him previously decided to join this new company, Uas Animation Studios (M) Sdn Bhd. His first task was to produce a hit animation series, thus Keluang Man was born in the same year. Since then, he continues to produce and direct Keluang Man animated series with assistance from a crew of 50 staffs. Due to increasing demands towards Keluang Man products, Uas Arts (M) Sdn Bhd was formed under Uas Group of Companies to produce the first Keluang Man comic in 1999. Recently, a new comic Tiong Man was released focusing towards younger readers.
