INTEGRITY (LIM JING FUNG WON YIN MOK) director Alan Mak Siu Fai earlier led Sean Lau Ching Wan, Nick Cheung Ka Fai, Karena Lam Ka Yun and other actors to attend the Beijng press conference and began their Mainland promotional tour! The first stop had the director Mak Siu Fai, Ching Wan, Ka Fai and Ka Yun super luxury Lunar New Year group in Shenzhen. A female fan successfully broke through the defense and surprise attacked Ka Fai. Ka Fai calmly thanked the fan for the support.

Many felt that INTEGRITY's Spring Festival release was a little strange. Mak Siu Fai said that he felt Lunar New Year films did not have to end with "Kung Hei Fat Choi" to be suitable for the Spring Festival release. The holiday needed an entertaining movie. 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)

NEW KING OF COMEDY was a story of temporary actors. Sing Yeh also shared his past as an extra. He revealed that he beg a director on his knees to reshoot his line.

Sing Yeh was a graduate of the 11th TVB artist training class, among his classmates were Tony Leung Chiu Wai, Bobby Auyeung Chun Wa, Francis Ng Chun Yu and Wilson Lam Chun Yin. However before his training class he was an extra on RTV's I.Q. 1000 (IQ SING SHOOK SI). Sing Yeh said, "When I was an extra you weren't born yet. Once I had a line. 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)

Earlier Lam Ka Yun and Mak Siu Fai shared their production experience on Hong Kong Open TV. Lam Ka Yun revealed that the first scene was an argument scene with Lau Ching Wan, but she admitted that argument scenes required familiarity and chemistry.

Mak Siu Fai stated that his impression of Lam Ka Yun was very deep. The first movie he saw Ka Yun in was INNER SENSES (YI DOH HUNG GAN) over a decade ago. He also praised Ka Yun was an actor from Heaven, he was ..... (article cut to save bandwidth)

Sean Lau Ching Wan, Nick Cheung Ka Fai, Karena Lam Ka Yun, Alex Fong Chung Shun, Carlos Chan Ka Lok yesterday attended their new film press conference in Beijing. Ching Wan and Ka Fai would return to their younger days with computer generated technology in the film. When they saw "their 21 year old selves", the Best Actors could not help but have a little fun. Ching Wan said, "Ka Fai really is very special, when I saw how he looked when he was younger I couldn't image how he is now. I am very simple, with just a look you would know that I look like a 'star'." Ka Fai said, "When I was younger I was angrier, the younger Ching wan was more innocent and kind."

Cheung Ka Fai's Cantonese accented Mandarin has been criticized as rivaling that of Louis Koo Tin Lok's. Yesterday Ka Fai introduced himself in fluent Mandarin and asked the reporters, "Do you understand me this time?"

Stephen Chow Sing Chi's Lunar New Year film THE NEW KING OF COMEDY (SUN HEI KET JI WONG) will open on the Lunar New Year's Day. After the golden team up with "Lau Piu Piu" Cecilia Cheung Pak Chi, Sing Yeh invited Fama to provide their voices to his new film's characters.

The always quick witted and funny Fama clicked with Sing Yeh on their first collaboration. When Lok Wing and C Kwan saw the folding chair that Sing Yeh personally autographed, they both wanted it for their collection. They also imitated the poster with it and even took a photo with Sing Yen and the folding chair! Sing Yeh also praised them as "cheap, pretty, great".

Fama provided their voices to two characters. C Kwan described his character as an over the hill actor. Lok Wing said, "I am a director. In the film C Kwan's character has to work on my movie. See the movie for details."

After working many times with Carol Cheng Yui Ling, Fama had to face the always known to be strict Sing Yeh. Instead they joked, "When we talk about mean no human can rival Sister Do, Sing Yeh didn't even yell at us. He was truly too nice and kind to us." C Kwan said, "Sing Yeh would teach with patience, he would keep asking for your opinions and give us freedom to perform. So you would learn something from his questions." Lok Wing said, "Sing Yeh sometimes ..... (article cut to save bandwidth)

The world's first super electric car theme giant indoor stunt show ELEKRON last night made its global premiere in Studio City in Macau. ELEKRON's spokesman Shawn Yue Man Lok after the red carpet ceremony officially unveiled the show. Lok Jai also guest starred in a convertible vignette with an actor, then greeted the audience again and left without performing a stunt. Guests included Myolie Wu Hung Yi, Charmaine Sheh Sze Man, Christine Kuo and her husband.

Yue Man Lok said that because he did not have time to practice he did not participate in the car stunt. Since it was the premiere show he did not want any accident to occur, it had nothing to be with him being a father. He revealed that her mother was also at the show, but his wife did not attend as she had to take care of their son. After becoming a father, would he miss his son .....

Chow Yun Fat and Anita Yuen Wing Yi are working on the film GUONG FAI SHUI YUET (AGE OF BRILLIANCE) in Macau. Earlier the film shot on location at a casino and some caught a glimpse of Chow Yun Fat. In the photo he had long hair in a rather retro look, however after he put on a pair of sunglasses he immediately was full of presence, as if God of Gamblers has returned!

At the table Chow Yun Fat crossed his arms, stared ahead, smiled a little like he had a plan. Next to him was Liu Kai Chi.
