Biography[ edit ] Chan Sing was born in in Bangkok, Thailand.
It is a thoroughly commercial cinema: Hong Kong film derives a number of elements from Hollywood, such as certain genre parameters, a "thrill-a-minute" philosophy and fast pacing and film editing.
But the borrowings are filtered through elements from traditional Chinese drama and artparticularly a penchant for stylisation and a disregard for Western standards of realism. This, combined with a fast and loose approach to the filmmaking process, contributes to the energy and surreal imagination that foreign audiences note in Hong Kong cinema.
There were 56 Hong Kong films and foreign films released in In the vertically integrated Hollywood film industry of the s, s, and s, these responsibilities were all undertaken by the studios themselves.
The studios made the stars and, due to notoriously restrictive terms imposed by exclusive services contracts, the studios also owned the stars McDonald, As is common in commercial cinema, the industry's heart is a highly developed star system. In earlier days, beloved performers from the Chinese opera stage often brought their audiences with them to the screen.
For the past three or four decades, television has been a major launching pad for movie stardom, through acting courses and widely watched drama, comedy and variety series offered by the two major stations. Possibly even more important is the overlap with the Cantonese pop music industry.
Many, if not most, movie stars have recording sidelines, and vice versa; this has been a key marketing strategy in an entertainment industry where American-style, multimedia advertising campaigns have until recently been little used Bordwell, In the current commercially troubled climate, the casting of young Cantopop idols such as Ekin Cheng and the Twins to attract the all-important youth audience is endemic.
In the small and tightly knit industry, actors as well as other personnel, such as directors are kept very busy.
During previous boom periods, the number of movies made by a successful figure in a single year could routinely reach double digits. Budgets[ edit ] Films are typically low-budget when compared with American films.
Language and sound[ edit ] Films in the Cantonese language have been made in Hong Kong since the beginning. In the s, it also became a center of Mandarin language film making after the Communist takeover in mainland China and the entertainment industry shifted from Shanghai to Hong Kong.
From the s to mids, Mandarin film productions became dominant, especially those made by the Shaw Brothers studio in Hong Kong. For decades, films were typically shot silentwith dialogue and all other sound dubbed afterwards. In the hectic and low-budget industry, this method was faster and more cost-efficient than recording live sound, particularly when using performers from different dialect regions; it also helped facilitate dubbing into other languages for the vital export market for example, Standard Mandarin for mainland China and Taiwan.
Many busy stars would not even record their own dialogue, but would be dubbed by a lesser-known performer. Shooting without sound also contributed to an improvisatory filmmaking approach. Movies often went into production without finished scripts, with scenes and dialogue concocted on the set; especially low-budget productions on tight schedules might even have actors mouth silently or simply count numbers, with actual dialogue created only in the editing process.1 Sing Lau Kee Forgotten Hero of World War I By Philip Chin Sing Lau Kee should be remembered today but his legacy as a war hero of World War I but.
