In the film Sister Na played a witness and had many scene with the Independent Commission Against Corruption officer Ka Wing. The running in the heat and the sea scenes were the most memorable and the happiest for Sister Na.

Sister Na and Ka Wing in the new film P STORM had a stadium running scene. The shoot took place in the summer, Ka Wing was all wet from running and had to take off his suit, but Sister Na said that it was not too bad. "Although we had a lot of running, gun fight and chase scenes, we even had scenes at sea, but maybe because I had a lot of fun and the film had many handsome actors I didn't feel bad at all. Haha! Instead I felt bad for the cinematographer. Because in this scene Ka Wing dragged me as we ran in the stadium, the cinematographer had to carry a camera and run with us. Not just for a part, but wherever we ran he had to run along side! When we shot the run we had to maintain a steady distance for the camera to focus."

Sister Na said that during the shoot rain often came. When the rain stopped they fought for time for the shoot. Actually the script did not ask her to fall, but due to the wet ground she ..... (article cut to save bandwidth)

Ah Chi invited Ah Sa to review the film's three male leads. Ah Sa said, "Deep (Ng Ho Hong) was very nervous during the bed scene. He said that I was always a cousin to him. During the shoot he kept sweating, some of the shoot even had to be halted for him to wipe his sweat; Alex (Lam Tak Shun) is very funny, very suitable to play the otaku character. He practices yoga normally and his arms are very strong. He can hold the pole and go horizontal, has great potential to be a great pole dancer; Wu Kang-Jen is an actor with a lot of heart, he works very hard to learn Cantonese. For each scene he would communicate with me clearly. Love scenes are very hard to grasp. We were off one day but he still was willing to rehearse in the kitchen with me. He is very serious."

THE LADY IMPROPER's cafe and kitchen locations were full of Hong Kong authenticity. Director Tsang Tsui Shan revealed, "We used several different sets, some of the old style cafes had millennial grease stain. My favorite was that type of greasy feeling." Ah Sa added, "The art .....

Anthony Wong Chau Sun and director Oliver Chan Siu Kuen yesterday attended a ViuTV program taping and continued to promote for their film STILL HUMAN (LUN LOK YUN)'s Hong Kong Film Award bid. The Best Actor favorite Chau Sun worried that he would be disappointed. He joked that he would not know how to face the cameras and was afraid that people would misrepresent what he would say on the stage. Thus he was considering not attending. If he would win Louis Koo Tin Lok would accept it on his behalf.

Yesterday Chau Sun had rashes all over his arms. He said that they became from stress and he already seek treatment. Now they were already under control but still would itch. "Earlier when Ma passed, the pressure went all the way to my head. Now it has already gradually subsided, but still persisted for two or three months." Because eczyma was chronic, Chau Sun could only take and apply medication. Was he prepared to win the Hong Kong Film Award Best Actor again next month? Chau Sun said, "I can't be too arrogant, I remember back when (Sean) Lau Ching Wan was the favorite but in the end he was disappointed, some roast pork bun (UNTOLD STORY) won." Chau Sun joked that he expected many cameras would try to capture him that night, so he had to practice which expression to make or even pretend to be asleep. "Actually I am still thinking .....

Derek Tsang Kwok Cheung, Pang Ho Cheung and Sunny Chan Wing Sun yesterday attended a Hong Kong International Film and Television Market forum, shared their directing experience and film's importance to them. Pang Ho Cheung said that at first he wanted to be an actor, but when he auditioned for the Performing Art Academy performance department he was not accepted. Later he heard that directors could have relationships with female stars and felt that he would be able to handle it. Thus he gave it a try. He and Chan Wing Sun suggested for everyone to observe everyday life more and find inspirations from it.

Tsang Kwok Cheung felt that directing was a lot of fun, like having a magic door it could reach different people. He said that currently he is busy with the post production on his new summer release and prepare for a movie about South Asians, which he hoped to start production at the end of the year.

Tsang Kwok Cheung said that he spent two years on research, examined the subject from many different angles and discovered many tragic cases. However he said that he would oppose to play himself in movies that he would direct, as he hoped to focus on directing.

Ah Sa said that the nomination was a huge encouragement. For her third nomination she was more at ease and at the same time she wanted to thank her SARA (CHOR GEI) producion team, which brought back her confidence for her to step out of her comfort circle and challenge even harder to play characters. In the film Ah Sa had a daring self pleasing scene in the bathroom. Would an attractive salary draw her to be more daring? Ah Sa admitted that salary would not affect her. At first she was unable to accept the nude scene as the script went even further. After communicating with the director they each took a step back.
