About EJIDA Studios

Ian Ghys has a passion for editing, directing, acting and producing. Andy Tao has a passion for filming. Ethan Chen has a passion of making films. So that's why they came together and decided to make a film studio. The name EJIDA Was made by having Ethan's first letter, E, first, then a random letter, J, then Ian's first letter, I, and then another random letter, D, and then finally Andy's first letter, A. That is how they came up with the name, EJIDA.
Sadly, Andy left EJIDA Studios recently.
