hiking in lantau

hiked with stephen this sat in lantau island - we walked from discovery bay to ngong ping (where the big buddha is). for those interested, it's a 20km + walk. there's a good bit of elevation as actually we go over and back down the 2nd and 3rd highest mountains in HK, i.e. 大東山 (869m) and 鳳凰山 (934m). was just curious so i checked it, IFC in Central is 415m.

weather was a bit cloudy, which makes for kinda crappy pix, but pretty perfect for hiking. some pix here...

one of my secret talents. well, past secret talent.

seeing the AnD crew last night, i felt pretty bad that i had not blogged for quite a while. work, travel, and some family stuff got in the way... but anyway.

watched quentin's documentary 0506 - for those who have the kind of dual fob-abc mentality, this was definitely thought provoking. having spent 4 years of high school and 4 years of college in US definitely gave me this weird bipolar personality where at times i could not really figure out where i belonged. then, the cynical part of me wou...Read more

random thoughts on film part 2

Continuing my random thoughts on hk film biz…

prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" / 

The big question is, how do you make films that make money? Or, how do you make films so you won’t lose your shirt? There seems to be three strategies that people are doing –

  • Mr. Bill Kong, king of blockbuster Chinese period films (although he does a “Riding Alone for Thousand Miles and a Lust, Caution once in a while).  Get Zhang Yimou, Jet Li, etc etc, shoot a film for US$20m+ get ...Read more

how i met your mother

erm... haven't followed up on my last post... although have been meaning to. work has been killing me, and, whatever free time, i've been watching this comedy series - "how i met your mother". it really is awesome! (for anyone who's seen it - a word that is repeated pretty much in every episode).

well, i finally just finished it... now i have to wait till october to get season 2...

history of hk film industry in 100 words

Thanks to everyone who commented on the “intro” post! The stuff I do isn't half as interesting as the artists, haha.  But in any case... have been thinking a lot about the prefix = st1 ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:smarttags" /Hong Kong and China film industry. This directly impacts my company, my job, and ultimately what I would want to do long term.  

prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" / 

Right now, it's not a pretty industry.  But, befo...Read more

long long meetings

thx all for the comments! stuck in long long scrīpt meetings these couple days - it really is extremely difficult to balance the needs of logic/suspense/story telling/visuals/commercial needs/originality in one scrīpt. extremely easy to criticize and poke holes in plots... but thinking of alternative possibilities is never easy. the solutions are usually either 1) too far fetched and unbelievable 2) cliche and everyone could see it coming 3) could make sense but then a lot of other aspects of the scrīpt need to be fixed accordingly: which ...Read more
