– Oh, yeah, police story. The light. (suspenseful music) (electricity crackling) Too long, the story. I was sick. I get injection. I was day and night shooting. Daytime, I’m filming, Heart of Dragon. Nighttime, I’m directing my own things. We built our own channel lights. Then we put the wire, we put the in electricity
to light up the light. Before I jump, the lighting guys says, “Sorry, the battery cannot
light up the whole thing. “We have to use the building battery. “I might get shocked, but don’t worry. “We watch you, anything
happens, we shut off the light.” You look down. Nothing. No apple box. I just use a small prop car with a million candies to safe me landing. That’s all! Then I just sit there. Then suddenly My stunt guy, we’re ready. Then he put something in my pocket. Okay. Then he run away. And I take my pocket.
There was something like a lucky… Buddha thing. He know I don’t believe
these kind of things. Then I – Okay. Put it back. I don’t have the time to
run, like, eight feet. I’m just standing there
like, the round pole. No balance. I said, anytime you see, I nod my head, rolling the camera. And I go up. I go down. It’s scary. Really scary! I’m not – I’m just ordinary people I’m not a Superman. And somehow, I see the drop. The sweat. Then I look at the camera. That’s a cameraman up
there already two hour. (chuckling) I said, “Okay, take a rest. “Get off your sweat.” Then he get off all the the sweat. Then I go up, “Are you okay?” “Yeah.” Then I just do this. One of the stunt guys, “Rolling!” I said, “Huh?” Then, you just hear 15 camera rolling. 15 camera. I think it’s the record at that time. We only have 400 feet. You’re not gonna jump? Gone! 75 (fps), 45 (fps), 120 (fps), normal speed. (screaming) Wow! The whole entire shopping mall, quiet. You only hear this machine. Then I– Aaahhh! I say, “I’m gonna die.” Yeah, I just, boom! (mimicking crackling) I jump down. And I said, “Wow, safe landing.” I grab my stunt guy do this. Then he said, “Hold on big brother,” “I’m gonna die, don’t hit me anymore.” Because I’m so exciting, the power. I don’t know where the power come from. Then I turn around and I see 600 extras, and I just to the thing.
(screaming) I hit myself, bruise. I just, “Aahhh!” Then I see all my hand,
the skin peeled, then at – like 6:00 we finish. Then we drinking a beer, celebration. Then I go to Heart of Dragon* Get out the car, sleep,
drive to the location. Then, “Big Brother, we
are on the location.” I get up. I cannot open the door. My hand just like this. It’s over. All the energy are gone. Then I get out of the car. The whole body was, no more power. I think at that time, in one second, I use all my power. Yeah. Actually, I go down. Almost fainted.
(screaming) We glad we don’t have, like, a
sound recording at that time. We dub later. Then, as he pick me up. “Speak dialogue! “Speak! “Speak!” Otherwise have to do it again. Actually, I just go, “Ayy-yay-yay-yay.” Boom, I just fainted.
