Bao started making movies on Hi8 video at an early age and developed his visual sense from Kung Fu movies, silents, musicals, and Hitchcock. Twitch Film praised his written-and-directed BOOKIE for its "flawlessly realized world populated by entirely fleshed out and believable characters, driven by a compelling narrative and brought to sumptuous life." The Seattle International Film Festival invited him to direct BLACK COFFEE in an exclusive filmmaking challenge. The film's seedy noir style caught the attention of Seattle Magazine, which awarded him their 2009 Artist Spotlight. Cinema Crazed calls it "one of the sharper short thrillers I've seen in a while... Bao has potential to stage a truly exciting feature-length thriller." He is currently developing several feature projects both in North America and Asia.
