How can you characterize your style of choreography? What is unique about your style?
As a choreographer, I have to do a lot of research about different martial arts styles and about martial arts history. Then, depending on the script, you can create new and different stuff. Like you can see from Jackie Chan’s movies, he always has new ideas for his choreography.
Most importantly you need to know what the audience want to see and create something new, something out of their expectation. Although Hung Kuen is my foundation, I can even choreograph Muay Thai.
Time control of each piece of choreography is also an important issue because it’s related to a person’s safety. It takes trust. You have to trust the whole team to make sure each kick or punch, or each explosion scene is on time so that no one will get injured.
