Lam Ka Tung, JJ Jia (Ga Hiu Sun) and Pang Ho Cheung yesterday attended the Hong Kong Independent Short Film and Video competition press conference. The event already accepted application starting yesterday. Ka Tung recently produced the Andy Lau Tak Wa produced film DA LUI TOI (RING FIGHT), which has a chance for release at the end of the year.
Wa Jai this time invested 8 million. First time producer Ka Tung expressed that it was very tough because he had to be on the set everyday. He was even called the "strong arm producer". Did he have to report to Wa Jai everyday? He said, "He never questioned me and only told me to be brave and do it, not to worry about every little thing. (Did Wa Jai guest star?) No." Did he see Wa Jai lately? He expressed that he has not had time to look for him but he sent text messages to him. Has Ka Tung seen Mrs. Lau? He said, "I rarely ask him about his personal life, I also rarely go to the company or his home. (How do you feel about the attacks on Wa Jai?) He should be given space for his personal life. If you support him then keep supporting him. Many outsiders won't understand. I hope everyone will keep supporting him in silence, that's what I do." A neighbor claimed to witness Chu Lai Sin shopping with a girl who called her Mommy. Years ago when Wa Jai attended a premiere, whenever he had a close up shot a baby would scream Daddy. Ka Tung said, "An internet user claimed that he and I have been gay for eight years. This is the wishful thinking of someone who doesn't understand. I won't comment. (Are you unhappy about being accused of being gay?) No, it proves that I can attract both men and women. This is someone's subjective wish." Ka Tung was sweating bullets. "The air conditioning is lacking here, I also switched to long sleeves and changed season early."
JJ said that she liked short films very much. Now she had some work on hand but all were about love. She directed and starred while a friend shot it. Also, Pang Ho Cheung earlier directed the Josie Ho Chiu Yi invested DREAM HOME (WAI DOR LEI AH YUT HO) but reportedly they were at odds. Chiu Yi even wanted back the right to edit. Pang Ho Cheung responded, "Today I won't talk about that, thank you!" As for Wa Jai being accused of already having two children, he expressed that each person had his own lifestyle and did not have to announce it. He never heard that Wa Jai had children. He revealed that at the end of the month he will work on the Miriam Yeung Chin Wa starred romance. "We in mid August talked about working on this film." In other words Pang Ho Cheung revealed that Yeung Chin Wa immediately took this role after her secret wedding. Was Chin Wa particularly happy? Pang Ho Cheung said, "Not really, just like she always is."
