William Chan Wai Ting for his Emperor film AS THE LIGHT GOES OUT (GAU FOR YING HUNG) earlier visited the Beijing Fire Department for a day. During the practice, William was no different from real firefights. They dined, trained and followed firefighting rules together. Afterward he praised firefighters as real heroes.
After the experience, William admitted that the firefighting gear was too heavy, and he was reminded of the AS LIGHT GOES OUT shoot. With even heavier gear he had to shoot a scene in which he rescued Hu Jun. Because he underestimated Hu's weight, when he pulled Hu Jun up he suffered a muscle tear. However, William admitted that in comparison to real firefighters, his injury was nothing!
