Not being dependent on studios and publishers as well as the release schedule of commercial films, as an independent filmmaker, how do you spend your time?

Since starting to choose the path of professional filmmaking in 2006, my time has only revolved around filmmaking and teaching.

During that time, I could hardly stop, after finishing one thing, I had to immediately start another, and then I had to move a lot.

At 35 years old, with 2 film scripts, including a directed film and a number of short films, do you feel like you’re using your time too slowly?

It’s slow, but not for filmmaking.

Which milestone in your career and life influenced you the most?

It was the summer when I was 17 years old, I watched a program about the Cannes Film Festival on a black-and-white TV at home and immediately decided to become a filmmaker, even though I had previously chosen literature and wanted to become a writer.

How is the progress of your new film in 2012?

I am working with financial investors for the project Fathers, Sons and Other Stories…, have chosen scenes and started rehearsing with actors. If everything goes well, filming will take place in mid-2012.

At the end of 2012, I will film a movie in the Southeast love cooperation project co-produced by Japan, Singapore and France.

In the future, do you want to make a commercial film that attracts a large audience?

Yes, I always want to make a martial arts movie that many people like.

Some filmmakers have the talent to accept compromises to survive like Charlie Nguyen with easy but popular films.

To live, everyone has to compromise.
