London-born Chinese writer-director Nicolas Chin's short film Tai Tai (starring Josie Ho) was an Official Selection at the 2002 Cannes Film Festival and won the Kodak Asian Vision Award in 2002. At 34, he's already enjoyed a border-straddling career working on historical documentaries and specials for the BBC, Channel 4, PBS and ABC in London and New York (including the Peabody Award-winning People's Century and Dame Edna's Millenium Show), and has directed commercials in Hong Kong and Shanghai. Magazine Gap Road is his feature directorial debut and marks his second collaboration with producer Chiu Wah Lee (Lust, Caution, The Mummy III) and Oscar-award winning editor Jean Tsien (Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon). Chin holds degrees in Art History from Cambridge University and language studies from Beijing's Tsing Hua University.
