SXSW, Texas, March 10, 2018.
When Hong Kong-born writer/director Joshi Chan first started working on his first television drama project in 1997, he was excited about the opportunity to take on a project that was at once ambitious and daring.
Chan has since written, produced, and directed five TV shows, including the hit television series “The Final,” “Borat,” “Catch Me If You Can,” and “The Great Indoors.”
Chan has also worked on feature films including “The Legend of the Galactic Heroes,” “Rise of the Guardians of the Galaxy,” and many others.
Chan’s debut feature film, “Kitty” won Hong Kong Screen Awards for best film, best director, and best actor for director Yuen Lee, who plays the title character, a young woman who becomes pregnant in a police station after an abusive boyfriend brutally beats her.
The film also won the Hong Kong Film Awards, a regional category for Chinese-language films.
Chan is now a director/producer on the upcoming TV drama “The Greatest Story,” which stars the same actors as the films “The Last” and “Killer.”
Chan is also producing and directing another upcoming Hong Kong series, “The Perfect Place,” which is set to air on Chinese cable channel Weiqing in 2019.
He is also working on a TV series about a Hong Kong woman who’s a member of a religious sect and is forced to marry a Chinese man in order to escape from the Chinese government.
“The perfect place” has a total budget of about $100,000.
Chan says that the show will be the first in the series, which is expected to air in the summer of 2019.
Chan, who has been a filmmaker for nearly 30 years, began his career as a young student at Hong Kong University of Science and Technology, but was inspired to become a writer by his father, a doctor.
He says that when he started working at a studio to direct his first feature film in 1997 he was told by his manager that he was too old to be a director.
Chan and his father decided to take a different path and created a team of seven people who were willing to give their lives for a project.
Chan began his first TV drama project when he was 20 years old, and he was the only one of the seven who was allowed to direct a series.
Chan worked as a producer for “The Lost Tribe” (2003) on PBS before returning to Hong Kong in 2005.
He moved to London to write and direct the television drama “Gorilla House” (2004), and he returned to Hong, where he worked on the show “The Secret Life of Hong Kong” (2005).
Chan says he wanted to bring his story to the world, but when he first got started, he found himself unable to make it happen.
“I found myself doing very little with it.
I couldn’t take the project to the public.
I didn’t have any ambition, because I knew I couldn.
So I didn.
And I just stopped.
And then I thought: Well, that’s what you do when you’re 20.
You have to find a way to make this happen,” Chan says.
Chan was able to bring the story to life with the help of a group of friends, who gave him the financial wherewithal to finish the series.
He worked on it for more than a decade before the series was picked up by PBS in 2008.
“It’s a very personal project, but it’s also very practical, because it’s a story that is really very universal,” Chan said.
“In Hong Kong, if you’re a man, you’re in a different place.
You can’t do what you want, you can’t be a man.
You’re a woman, you have to have an identity and a name, and you have a job.
But in America, if a man gets married, he can get the same rights as a woman.
So what we do is we bring these things together.
This is our story.
This story has the same characters, but they’re different places.
It’s a universal story, which I think is important for us to tell.
It is the story of a woman in a society that’s been so harsh for so long, and yet she finds herself in this place.
So we have to tell the story about women who are in this situation in America and that’s our purpose.
I think that’s the biggest thing.”
Chan’s first television series, the Hongkong-language series “Caught Me If We Can,” was nominated for three Golden Globe Awards.
The show also won two Screen Actors Guild Awards, which was Chan’s fourth and most prestigious award.
“Killing the Bull” won the Audience Award for best drama at the 2013 New York International Film Festival, and was the highest-rated television drama of the year.
