Making good films, only one thing to remember: nothing is impossible!
Kevin Chu Yun-chau was born in Hong Kong in 1957. After graduating from Baptist College in 1981, he worked at TVB as a scriptwriter for three months, then switched to advertising. He later joined Video-Film Productions in 1984 and, in 1990, formed his own production company, Ignite Productions Ltd.
Chu entered the film industry in 1991, serving as Director of Photography for Evans Chan’s To Liv(e). He made his directorial debut the same year, making My Wife’s Lover (1991), which he also produced and photographed. After directing Love is a Fairy Tale (1993), starring Aaron Kwok and Rosamond Kwan, Chu concentrated on making commercials, garnering many awards for his work including the Silver Award for Keep Hong Kong Clean Campaign in the New York International Film and TV Festival.
In 2006, to commemorate the 30th anniversary of the Tangshan earthquake, Chu collaborated with a Tangshan television station to make the feature Tangshan Tangshan (2006), which was shown in film festivals in the United Kingdoms, Rome, Australia and Canada, winning the prize of Best Film at the Byron Bay International Film Festival 2007. The film’s theme song, sung by Jacky Cheung, was nominated for Best Film Song at the Golden Bauhinia Awards.
