Earlier Michelle Wai Sze Nga, Halina Tam Siu Wan, Philip Keung Ho Man and Helena Law Lan worked on the film ADIEU (GO BIT JI HAU). Wai Sze Nga revealed that she and Louis Cheung Kai Chung would play a couple. Their daughter had leukemia. "The shoot took place around Christmas and New Year's Eve. Everyone else were happy but we were very heartbroken." Sze Nga played a mother before but she asked Cheung Kai Chung for advice. "Actually one of the reasons I took this film was I wanted to work with Cheung Kai Chung again. Before we worked on a comedy together. He was very sharp. I wanted to know how he would be like on a tragedy. He was very funny off camera but as soon as the cameras rolled he got into character. He was an actor with a lot of ideas."

Tam Siu Wan who has not appeared on screen for a long time recently made two movies. "The feelings all came back. With the right characters I would want to play them. (Would you return to TVB?) They haven't asked me, I wouldn't resist. The recent reruns of VIRTUES OF HARMONY got to my part. Watching again I thought it was pretty interesting. When I made them I had a lot of fun."

He encouraged a young of young director to insist upon original creation, work hard to develop domestic films and revealed that "Fresh Wave" has already been officially registered as a charitable organization to operate independently. He asked everyone to donate money to support "Fresh Wave".

To Sir said, "In the past we have worked with the Art Development Council's support for nine years. This time the reason behind the independence is that every year the ADC allocates a lot of funding to different groups, but some groups after receiving the funding do not develop with it. Thus it was very rare for new groups to join. Every year we would receive HK$ 4 million from ADC, then 5% less every year after. Thus aside from government support we also needed to find outside funding. We cannot completely rely on the government, otherwise it would be very hard for new groups to join."

With TRIVISA's good performance, To Sir said that he would continue to cultivate talented people but needed to find suitable scripts. He personally hoped to make movies without any pressure.
