22 Aug – Although there are Asian stars who feel discriminated against while working in Hollywood, filmmaker Stephen Fung stated that he is not one to dwell so much on the topic.
As reported on HK01, the director, who recently helmed the first few episodes of Netflix's new series "Wu Assassins", shared that the streaming giant respects filmmakers all over the world, and that there has never been a problem working with them.
"I don't think too much about it. Sometimes when you have to cut the budget, you just cut regardless of any skin colour. Of course, racial discrimination happens, but if you're working abroad, you should not have negative thoughts immediately," he said.
When asked about the difference between working in Hollywood and in Hong Kong, Stephen said that Hollywood already has a well-established system with everything already prepared before one starts production.
"In my experience of working with a Hong Kong or mainland production, sometimes it is hard to have meetings and preparations in advance. Sometimes, the cameraman you want is really busy and would only show up when the production is starting," he said.
