Marco Mak Chi-sin was born in Hong Kong in 1953. In 1965, at age 14, he joined Universal Laboratory as an apprentice, learning film processing and editing from veteran editor Sung Ming. He first served as co-editor with Sung but soon received sole credit as editor. Up until 2012, Mak had edited over 170 feature films and is widely seen as one of the most important editors in Hong Kong. Starting in the late 1970s, Mak edited a slew of films directed by Stanley Siu serving also as assistant director, such as The Discharged (1977), The Rascal Billionaire (1978), Absolute Monarch (1980), The Legal Illegal (1981), Don’t Kill Me, Brother! (1981), New York China Town (1982) and The Militarism Revival (1982). Since 1989, Mak has edited many of Tsui Hark’s films, including A Better Tomorrow III, the Swordsman series (1990-1993), A Terra-Cotta Warrior (1989), A Chinese Ghost Story II (1990), the Once Upon a Time in China series (1991-1994), Twin Dragons (1992), The Lovers (1994), Time and Tide (2000) and The Legend of Zu (2001). Another frequent collaborator was Wong Jing, on such films as The Saint of Gamblers (1995), the Young and Dangerous series (1996-1998) and Prince Charming (1999). Mak was twice awarded Best Editor at the Hong Kong Film Awards, for Once Upon a Time in China (1991) and The Storm Riders (1998, co-edited with Danny Pang Fat), as well as nominated for that award ten times and at Taiwan’s Golden Horse Award twice.

Mak started directing in 2000, and his first two films, The Blood Rules (2000) and Love Correction (2000), performed only adequately at the box office. His 2001 efforts Gambler’s Story and The Replacement Suspects, as well as 2005’s Slim Till Dead and Set to Kill, were distinctive works directorial flare. Colour of the Truth (2003, co-directed with Wong Jing), which portrayed the blurred division between police and Triads, was widely considered one of the best films of 2003.
