I had spent most of my life in television, but suddenly entered the magical world of movies. The experience is like a dream! Two years ago, when I made my first film, I thought what I had learnt in television would come in handy. However, when production began, I discovered that other than basic camera positioning, all the working procedures, the calculation of film costs, lighting, the lingo... were all different. I felt like a primary school student going to school for the first time.
Making a film is full of challenges, and problems arise every day, and there are constant setbacks. However, filmmaking is also very exciting. Anything that one dares to think and conceive can become realized in film. My first film was about youthful first love, the second about exciting onenight stands, the third a Chinese New Year movie suitable for the entire family. If the investors allow, my next film will be martial arts or even suspense! Even though I entered the film industry at middle age, this does not mean I am any less passionate about film!
