    About me

    James is a passionate young filmmaker graduated from Royal Holloway, University of London with a degree in Film, Television, and Digital Production.

    He has an unique voice in filmmaking as he is born and grew up in Hong Kong, yet trained and work in London. During his stay in award-winning company Radio Television Hong Kong, he took care of everything the director shouldn't bother, from 1st ADing and managing the set all the way to simple matters such as food and transportation, props and costumes, and of course very importantly - taking care of actors and crew.

    His recent short film STARFISH has been submitted to festivals and constantly receiving awards as well as official selections.

    Although having the experience of working in a major TV company, as a young developing director, James is constantly eager for opportunities of assisting directors or assisting the production in general, thus learning from the professionals.

    Additional Information

    These are the words I wrote down when I submitted my first short film to festivals a couple years ago. Now that I have grown after these couple of years, these words sound a bit juvenile, but I think they still apply to this day, so just for your information.

    "Going down the road of filmmaking alone in London hasn't been easy for me. When I arrived in first year, I had no connections, no network, no family nor friends, no personal relationships. As I embarked on, I have met many people, some of them became friends, some went for their own journeys, some had already passed away, some of them used to be on the same path with me but just gave up in the middle. Today, I got my own crew members and network to support my work, and that is something really precious in my opinion. To me, filmmaking was never a choice, it so happened to be the only option I had when I graduated from high school. In that sense, I always thought filmmaking is not just a dream, but rather it is a responsibility, that I cannot let these people down, that I have to finish the job for those who couldn't make it. No matter if you are willing to support me or not, I appreciate your patience and time to watch my films and I promise I will keep doing better!"
