Born in 1953, Lan Nei-tsai joined Shaw Brothers at the age of 15 as a junior worker. With his hard work and dedication, Lan was later promoted to focus puller and finally a cinematographer. Nicknamed “Mouse”, Lan has worked with a number of renowned directors such as Sun Chung, Chu Yuan and Wong Chung. He has worked as a cinematographer for seven years, and was recognised as the best cinematographer in Shaw Brothers.

Despite the encouragement of Shaw Brothers, as well as the persuasion from Tsui Hark and Sammo Hung, Lan has refused to become a director until Danny Lee invited him to co-direct One Way Only, which became his first directorial work. Lan and Lee were very close friends as they’re more or less the same age, and they’re often known as “The Twin dragons roaring out to sea”.

Lan has directed more than a dozen films, including Brothers From Walled City, Men From The Gutter and Three Stooges Go Undercover in the 1980s, and Saga Of The Phoenix, Erotic Ghost Story, Story Of Ricky and The Cat in the following decade.
