I am thankful for the confusions of my youth, for which I am apologetic, but which realized my first film.
I am thankful that at age 25, someone trusted me, trusted the youth of Hong Kong and let us film our own story, about youthfulness of the moment.
There is so much more I need to learn – my view of the world is hardly deep enough. With growth, I hope I can have more opportunities to participate in more films.

Returning to Hong Kong after graduation, he directed music videos, short films and founded the production group Marc. Two Visuals. In 2011, one of his short pieces won Hong Kong Federation of Youth Group’s Short Film Competition for Chinese Youth 2011.
Kan then made his directorial debut with When C Goes With G7 (2013), a rite-of-passage film about Hong Kong youths. The film was included in the Hong Kong First segment of the Hong Kong Asian Film Festival.
