FAQ

Where are you based?


I work with different production houses all over the world, distances are not an issue. I am a Shanghai-based director who also does commercials and music videos in Los Angeles, Belgium, France, and anywhere I am needed.




What are your day rates?


My day rates are variable depending on the project needs and durations; I also have documents available regarding my prices, rates, and conditions. Just drop me an email, and we can discuss it.




Are you photographer, director, cinematographer, motion designer or creative director?


I am a bit of altogether, and my specialty is to mix different techniques;
Illustrations, Matte-painting, 3D, Photography, Creatives ideas, Cinematography, are all parts of what I practice and learn since I started my career in 2000.

I consider myself a storyteller at first; I use all the tools I have in my hand to tell the story.

Movies and films are a teamwork effort, but as a director, I like to understand every piece of the machine, by having experience and understanding of every part, I can lead and collaborate with my team correctly from the script to the final result.




Do you do your own post?


I know more than 20 software and also do 3D, editing, 2D animation, color grading, photo retouching, photography, illustrations, etc.

However, I prefer to work with a team and using my skills and in-depth knowledge, experience to lead them in the right direction and with this process aiming for the higher result than I would typically achieve on my own.


Team works make the dream works




Why "Hero"?


I come from comics and illustrations; at the time, I was drawing a lot of monsters and superheroes. Hero is also an ironic nickname, as you can be a Hero or an Anti-Hero, it’s up to you to decide. I love this dichotomy.

I also use to sign Hero on my paintings and draws for a decade, peoples in my home country called me Hero on a daily base, even some people only know me from that name.

One day my lawyer called me by the name of Hero, so for me, that was it, and the name stuck to me with the time passing by.




I like your work I want to feature it on my blog/article!


Great! And thank you! Drop me an email, and don't forget to ask me for permission. I'll forward you all the credits and content you need regarding the project.

Filmmaking is a collective work; I need to mention all the peoples involved in it.
