Wing Chun master Sin Kwok Lam and disciple Rose Chan Ka Wun yesterday were guest speakers at the ATV "performing art training project". Master Sin taught the artists to learn to grasp opportunities and cited the example of the film IP MAN, which he recommended to Raymond Wong Pak Ming to make. Finally the film's leads Donnie Yen Chi Tan, Lynn Xiong (Hung Doi Lam) and Louis Fan Siu Wong all became stars. He said, "Yen Chi Tan after IP MAN went from B class to A class and his salary went from 3 million to 40 million."
However, Master Sin at the end of the year will make a movie about Hung Kuen but would not ask Yen Chi Tan to star. He said, "I can't afford 40 million. I want to get (Anthony) Wong Chau Sun and (Eric) Tsang Chi Wai to play Wong Fei Hung and Butcher Wing, and my disciple Chow Ting Yu would play Lau Cham." He praised Chau Sun in the film IP MAN THE FINAL FIGHT (IP MAN JUNG JIK YUT JIN) was the most convincing Ip man. "I have made many IP MAN movies, no one else's words are more reputable than mine. Wong Chau Sun's martial art action has a grand master, elder style. Yen Chi Tan's fighting style resembles a killer's."
