Sorry it has been many moons since last I posted. I just got back from Hong Kong (after stopping off to see family in Taiwan and a short trip to Korea). HK is an amazing city and I met some great people out there who I can't wait to work with again. For those of you who haven't read Kit Hui's or Renee Chao's blogs...we just wrapped production on Kit's first feature film, FOG in Hong Kong. Congrats, Kit! It was also my first feature as a cinematographer. Despite all the production madness that goes into making a film, i can't ...Read more
