The 1980s classic The Bund produced by TVB, a sto

 set in Shanghai in the 1930s starring Chow Yunfat, has so far been the most time-consuming restoration work, but Jiang says it’s worth it.

“George Lucas spent many years restoring old Star Wars films he made himself,” Jiang says

. “It’s almost like a remake. We’re also looking to create a classic Chinese production, which needs just as much of our energy.”

Speaking of the future, Pei says there is no end to their work. “People get u

sed to watching TV productions shot in 4K resolution today. However, once 8K be

comes common, viewers might consider 4K shows ‘unwatchable’ again. Today’s work will still need restoration one day.”

lobal creator community giant WeWork officially launched its startup services platform, WeWork Lab

s, in China on April 11 in its bid to expand its presence in the burgeoning innovation and entrepreneurship market.
