Two days ago the flm opened and she booked a show for her family and friends. Actually she has already seen the film at the premiere earlier and thought that she could perform even better. The entire film was very entertaining. Choi Chung Sze said that she performed in web drama before and hoped to continue to have the chance to act in the future.

Playing Anita Yuen Wing Yi and Francis Ng Chun Yu's daughter in the film, she admitted that working with elders was very stressful because their performance was fast and precise. She aside from coordinating fortunately also received their understanding. Although Len Len did not teach her acting, she often taught her what was good to eat. Mainly Len Len and Chun Yu both loved food, so they would constantly treat everyone.

Cheung Tat Ming also booked a show for friends. He wanted to personally see the audience response more. He pointed out that this time he played the grandpa character.

DaDa Chan Jing in the Lunar New Year film MISSBEHAVIOR (GUNG HEI BAK POR) and a phone group with eight people like Gigi Leung Wing Kei, Jo Kuk Cho Lam, Isabel Chan Yat Ning and others. Due to a misunderstanding they have not been in contact for a very long time. Playing a young writer, DaDa said that in the film she often turned what happened to her friends into books. Director Pang Ho Cheung also listened to friends' stories and them made them into movies.

DaDa said that she got sexy again for the film because she owed director Pang Ho Cheung. In addition his films were fun and had a deeper layer meaning. She said, "This time he gave me the writer role to play, I was very grateful to him. It's not just sexy, I got to do a lot. I also did a lot that I have never done in my acting before. Instead I happily finished it without any stress. For me, earlier I wanted to try different characters unlike 'Popping Candy' in VULGARIA (DAI JOOK HEI KET). I didn't want the audience to typecast me. As I aged slowly I knew I wanted to be different, instead I wanted to act more and not just keep playng the same type of characters."

DaDa lamented the difficulty of wearing low cut clothes in the film. Aside from the visual burden, she also had chase scenes and had to magnify life events on the big screen. She said, "In one scene I had a stomach ache and ..... (article cut to save bandwidth)

Andrew Lam Man Chung and Albert Mak Kai Kwong directed the Lunar New Year film A LIFETIME TREASURE (YU JU YU BO). Despite Lam Man Chung having to direct and star, Mak Kai Kwong lightened the load. A LIFETIME TREASURE had a strong cast of veteran actors Tian Niu, Richard Ng Yiu Hon, Sammo Hung Kam Bo, Teddy Robin Kwan, Leung Siu Lung and others and young actors Louis Cheung Kai Chung, Bob Lam Sing Bun, Ivana Wong Yuen Chi and Dennis To Yu Hang.

Mak Kai Kwong admitted that although this time had many veteran actors it was not difficult. Instead he felt the veterans were easy going and the production process was very happy. He stated that the end was the hardest to shoot with 40 or 50 actors. Because Big Brother Big had limited time, they could only finish the ending scene in four days. He said, "I really thank To Yu Hang, one day we had to shoot with two teams at the same time. I was responsible for the ending scene while Lam Man Chung shot the other side. The worst part he had scenes in both sides. I had to shoot the scene before he fought, then he had to shoot the fight. Sometimes he really was very busy. After the fight he returned to my shoot. Thus sometimes we set everything up for the next shoot to wait for Ah Chung to finish his scene."

Playing a fake official, To Yu Hang even asked his MMA heavyweight friend Bruce Lee to make his big ..... (article cut to save bandwidth)

From this angle, their film was very suitable for this slot.

At the promotion, the director, Ching Wan, Ka Fai and Ka Yun made their own calligraphy couplets and gave them to the audience. Ka Fai even gave one to someone who was having coffee, which was very appropriate to the ICAC subject.

In addition, during the games a female fan successfully broke through the security defense and took the chance to hug Ka Fai on the stage. Ka Fai calmly thanked the fan for her support with a smile. After Shenzehn they continued on to Guangzhou, Dongguan, Huizhou, Xiamen, Zhuhai, Suzhou and Jiaxing to meet viewers.

The Hong Kong Film Development Fund financially assisted the 5th First Feature Film Initiative yesterday announced its winners. Receiving HK$ 3.25 million in assistance, the Higher Education Institution Group winners included the Nick Cheuk Yik Him directed, Derek Yee Tung Sing produced TIME STILL TURNS THE PAGES (WAI SHU) and the Eric Tsang Hing Won directed THE DINNER (YEUNG); receiving HK$ 5.5 million in assistance, the Professional Group winners included the Anastasia Tsang Hin Ning directed A LIGHT NEVER GOES OUT (DUNG FOR LAN SHAN).

Yesterday at the press conference, Siu Bo mentioned that new directors often would run into production and market problems. The biggest problem was of course the lack of funding. "So I hope the government can give a little more, there is inflation too. However giving too much isn't good either. It has to be appropriate. Like the Mainland new directors would already have a lot of money to make their first film, in the long run it's not good!" Siu Bo pointed out that the Mainland film market rose over a decade ago, many filmmakers have given up Hong Kong's existing market. In recent years Hong Kong cultivated talent. The Film Development Fund after several years would cultivate 70 to 80 directors, actors and behind the scene workers. "Although last year Hong Kong only made 54 movies, young people entered. I believe in the next two or three years it will ..... (article cut to save bandwidth)

I thought I didn't deliver it well. I was still thinking about it when I got home, why did I say it like that? I went back to ask the director, 'Can we reshoot my scene, can you give me a chance to deliver the line again?' The director stared at me. I remembered I might have gotten down on my knees, 'Director, let me say it once more!' Finally the director gave me a chance, at the time I was still on television. I forgot which series it was." E Jingwen was moved to tears.

As for his future plans, Sing Yeh said that he would keep creating comedy. He wanted even more ..... (article cut to save bandwidth)

The Cheung Tat Ming produced, written and starred film A HOME WITH A VIEW (GA WOR MAN SI GAING) opens today. Yesterday he promoted on Commercial Radio and revealed that he was excited, but admitted that the release was somewhat difficult because everyone was busy working overtime before the Lunar New Year. Did he have any box office pressure? He said no, this was not an area that he had to be worry about. Because he was responsible for creating and performing, he had confidence in this film. As long as someone liked to watch a good movie and good actors they would want to see it. The film had many superstars like Louis Koo Tin Lok, Francis Ng Chun Yu, Anita Yuen Wing Yi, Anthony Wong Chau Sun, Elena Kong Mei Yi, but he had to apologize to Law Kar Ying. Because the film was too long, he could only cut other Borther Kar Ying's guest starring role.

This year competition between domestic Lunar New Year films would be fierce. Tat Ming said that he noticed that too and felt that the strongest was Stephen Chow Sing Chi. With Wong Cho Lam, Pang Ho Cheung and others, more competition and a full bloom would be fine and even more cheerful. This film was based on Tat Ming's award winning play. He said, "This time I injected many film angles, making it even more ..... (article cut to save bandwidth)
