According to Mingpao News, Lau revealed through a telephone interview recently that the society members will be meeting up to discuss ways for them to help Chan’s family.
Hong Kong director and cinematographer Andrew Lau, who is also the president of the Hong Kong Society of Cinematographers, recently stated that the association will be helping as much as they could in regard to the sudden demise of cinematographer, Chan Kwok Hung.
When asked whether they will be helping the family with continuous financial aid so that the children can continue their studies, Lau said that the society is obligated to help Chan’s family as much as they could.
“But for the time being, the main concern is to assist them in dealing with funeral arrangements. Other kinds of assistance will be determined later,” said Lau.
Meanwhile, Chan’s widow and children recently arrived at the Kwai Chung mortuary to identify his body.
The cinematographer lost his life during the filming of Jackie Chan’s new movie, “Skiptrace”, when his boat, which supported seven other crew members, capsized off the coast of Lantau Island.
He was 51.
