Personal Quote:

I started making films in fifth grade when my family and I would go on vacations and my mom decided to let me be in charge of the camera... Rather than shooting our family in front of the London Bridge or the Eiffel Tower, I was making sci-fi thrillers and murder mysteries. See more »

Trivia:

Was hired by Sony Pictures to direct their feature "Bye Bye Birdie" but Sony never green lit the film due to budgetary concerns. Sony recently got back into business with Chu to direct their big budget tent pole "Masters of the Universe". See more »
