Yeh Tien-lun (Chinese: 葉天倫; born 1975) or Nelson Yeh is a Taiwanese film director.
Yeh Tien-lun is also known by the English name Nelson Yeh. He was born in Twatutia in 1975. His father is Yeh Chin-sheng, and his mother is Tamako Pan. Yeh's sister is Yeh Tan-ching. Yeh Tien-lun studied film while attending Shih Hsin University, but did not begin his filmmaking career upon graduation, as he felt he could not compare to the work of French New Wave film directors Jean-Luc Godard and François Truffaut, or Ingmar Bergman. Additionally, Yeh's television producer father had incurred a large debt to make a film. Due to these influences, the younger Yeh focused instead on other performance art, including dance and choral singing, as well as voice and stage acting. He appeared with Hugh Lee's Ping-Fong Acting Troupe.
