  • YUNG LEE

    (Action Designer)
    Best known for Shang-Chi, The Kings Man, SOLO: A Star Wars Story.

    Yung has an extensive background in the entertainment industry and production of creative content. Starting in 2011, he started a YouTube channel by the name of GakAttack which featured short action films that focused on action choreography and visual effects both done by Yung himself.

    This brought some moderate success achieving over 20 million views and most of all attracting the attention of one of Hollywood’s legendary stunt / fight coordinators who was mentored by Jackie Chan, Brad Allan. Brad was the stunt coordinator responsible for such great action films as The Kingsman, Kick-Ass, and Scott Pilgrim vs The World. Brad took Yung Lee out of YouTube, and gave him an offer he couldn't refuse; to join his stunt team in creating future action films for Hollywood movies.

    Under the mentorship of Brad, this propelled Yung into becoming one of the main creative forces in the design of several action sequences over the course of the next 7 years for such films as follows: Kingsman 2, SOLO: A Star Wars Story, Marvel Studio’s Shang-Chi, and The King’s Man. His involvement ranged from the edit, the shot design, the choreography, and the VFX methodology and breakdown. As pre-production and action design was locked in, he would then become the on-set editor cutting the action sequences immediately as they were being shot. These films would go on to receive praise globally for their action and net a total combined box office of 1.3 billion dollars. His contribution to the stunt ensemble in Shang-Chi has even garnered a nomination for Outstanding Action Performance in the Screen Actors Guild awards for 2021.

    He has gained a vast knowledge of producing, developing, and designing action films while working closely with such directors such as Ron Howard, Matthew Vaughn, Destin Daniel Cretton, Phil Lord & Chris Miller and actors like Taron Egerton, Colin Firth, Ralph Fiennes, Donald Glover, Awkwafina and Simu Liu.
