Director of Hong Kong Film Awards, Film Producer, Screenwriter, Director and Actor |
Manfred Wong Man-Chun is a multi-talented man – he’s a writer, radio programmer compère, an actor at times, producer, scriptwriter and director, all in one.
He entered the film industry in 1979, working in the creative side of production. In 1995 he formed a partnership with director-cinematographer Wai-Keung Lau and writer-producer-director Jing Wong to establish B.O.B. & Partners Co. Ltd., the creative team most noted for its creation of the very successful Young and Dangerous series, the first of which established box-office breaking success.
The success of the Young and Dangerous series is due to Manfred’s keen observation of pop culture. Mixing comic story and the pop culture of youth with the triad genre, he connected movies with generational appeal, and Manfred has made it again with “The Storm Riders.”
