This was the final end piece to The Heavenly Kings saga. Almost exactly 1 year after our premiere at the Cultural Center in HK, we take home the award for best new director at the 26th Hong Kong Film Awards in the same place. It's been a long journey that lasted a total of 4 years since it's inception. We also managed to pull off ,arguably, the strangest and whackiest performance in the history of the HKFA, as we, along with the entire crew sang "Adam's Choice" for the last time.(yes, we are sparing you form our horrible voices forever!). Kit, Jan, Phat and Adrian from 24 Herbs, Qiu Hong, Hardpack and Auditraffic respectively rocked the house as we open up the next chapter of alivenotdead.com with these guys. It was like passing the torch to some very deserving individuals. The rest of the crew also pulled off the coolest dance to ever hit the Cultural Center stage, with those crazy glow sticks! I could tell some of the older members of the audience were confused and perturbed by our performance but who cares! It wasn't for them. The show was for the young generation, to encourage and inspire them to be crazy and creative because that's the only way we are going to keep forging ahead in the HK entertainment industry.
We still have a couple more film festivals to go to, like the San Francisco International Film Fest, but last night was the emotional closure on this insane project. The book is now closed or at least this chapter is done with! I'm officially retired from boyband life! Couldn't have had a more perfect day.
Just want to thank everyone out there who has supported us and the THK project. Your support has been so meaningful and integral to this project. Also thanks to the HK fans, who showed up yesterday and waited all day and night to give the extra support as we ran all over town yesterday. Thanks for the champagne! Got a headache now but it tasted so good! Now go back and concentrate on your work! I will throw you guys a thank you party when I get back from New York!
