Hong Kong Film Directors' Guild - Directors - Wai Tak Tommy LOR
羅惠德 | LOR Wai Tak Tommy

Working as a director for so many years, I had experienced much happiness and sorrow. Making films is like having a child – hoping that he’d have a good career, an outstanding life and would contribute to society… Film is an industry of collectives; a good film needs a good script, good actors, a good cinematographer, good art design and, during post production, editing and music are also important! The director has to integrate everything, putting his personal stamp on it and supervise production quality. Only with all these can the film has a chance to be good.

The most memorable experience in my career as director was also the moment when cameras were turned off at the finish of my first film. The setting was Taiwan’s hot spring area and the crew threw me in the water. I was happy.

The actor I respect most is Lai Yiu-cheung. Shooting Osaka Wrestling Restaurant at Osaka, I told him: “your talents had not been totally realized! You’ll have a chance at Best Actor!” He is now Best Actor ( on television ) !

If I’m not a director, I wish to be a producer, making films I like.


Tommy Lor Wai-tak was born in Hong Kong and, driven by a love of film, entered the industry in the 1990s.
