Sir Run Run Shaw is a Hong Kong media mogul. Sir Run Run Shaw was born in Ningbo, Zhejiang, China and raised in mainland China, but received his education in American-run schools.At age 19, during his summer vacation, he followed his third elder brother Run Me Shaw to Singapore to start a film market there. Following that, he developed a deep interest in the movie business. He and his brother founded the South Seas Film studio in 1930, which later became Shaw Studios. In 1972, he launched TVB (Television Broadcasts Ltd.) in Hong Kong, growing it into a multi-billion dollar TV empire ranking today as one of the top 5 television producers in the world.His wife died at age 85 in 1987. Shaw Studios stopped filming in the same year. He remarried in Las Vegas in 1997 to Mona Shaw.In 2000, through his company, Shaw Brothers (Hong Kong) Limited, he sold his unique library of 760 classic titles to Celestial Pictures Limited. His name is credited even in western movies which he has backed such as in Blade Runner under the The Ladd Company logo.Continuing to show perseverence, Shaw Studios entered a new era with Run Run Shaw's majority investment (through his various holding companies) in the US$180 million Hong Kong Movie City project, a 1.1 million square feet studio and production facility. The facility features one of the largest, fully air-conditioned and sound and vibration-insulated soundstages in Asia, a full-service color lab and digital imaging facility, over 20 sound and editing suites, a 400-seat dubbing and screening theatre, executive and production office space, banqueting facilities, and visual effects and animation capabilities. This facility serves as the center-piece of Shaw Studios and indeed the whole Chinese film industry as a whole moving forward.Sir Run Run Shaw holds significant other business interests around the world. His construction of the 23-storey Shaw Tower at Cathedral Place located in Vancouver, BC, Canada is just one example of his real estate interests.Over the years, he has donated billions of dollars to charity, schools and hospitals.
