We had the good fortune of connecting with Xixian Wang and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Xixian, what do you think about risk?
Life is all about risk-taking to me. I like to take on challenges and that is what makes me grow the fastest. When choosing projects, I often choose the ones that seem to be the most complicated. However, when I accomplish the task, I feel that I made the right decisions, because of the experience and lessons I learned from doing it.

What should our readers know about your business?
I enjoy being a film producer, someone who initiates and produces content that has an artistic voice and social influence. My passion is to make more films about untold stories that transcend different cultures. I hope to collaborate with talented directors and produce films that trigger people to relate, reflect, and remember.

Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.
It really depends on who is that friend. Does this friend like nature, or city view, or night club, or shopping. Thinking as a producer, I need to find the right place for the right people. It is about matching their anticipation with what you can offer with what you had.

Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
I’d like to shout out to all the people who helped me along the way, my parents, my teachers, and fellow students at the American Film Institute. I’d also like to thank all the people who donated money and time to my films, as well as the people who gave us discounts for the production.
