Gwai Lou
Gwai Lou means ‘Foreign devil’, it is a common Cantonese slang for Westerners. People used to call me this as a joke when I first arrived in Malaysia a few years ago. Now it is how I call myself.
I started using this pseudonym after I moved to Malaysia to make some kind of distinction in my work between Europe and in Asia, as the stories you can tell in different continents also shape your filming style. I have been working in film and TV for more than 12 years. Here in Malaysia I have been working mainly as DOP, shooting films like "Barbarian Invasions" (Shanghai IFF, 2021) by Tan Chui Mui, "Sometimes, Sometimes" by Jacky Yeap (Golden Horse 2020, Shanghai IFF 2020) or "Metro Maalai" by Haran & Shobaan (Luang Prabanf FF 2020).
This 2021 I founded along Annabel Tiu (my wife and producer) and Feisal Azizuddin the film production company StraycatsFilms Sdn Bhd.
