“I wanted to make a film no one else could have made, preferably a popular entertainer, and I had the resources at hand, so why not. “By the time I’d decided to make ‘Local Kung Fu’, I’d already made about 10-12 short films and music videos, including 5-6 fight videos. So I was confident that we would be able to pull off a full-length feature film, with the help of my family and friends,”
