Louis Koo Tin Lok, Nick Cheung Ka Fai, Gao Yuanyuan and others yesterday attended the Fresh Wave 2011 International Short Film and Video closing ceremony and award presentation. Goo Jai said that he was very supportive on new directors and hoped that they would have even more opportunities. He said, "Hong Kong films have their own specialty, our support is also very important."
Goo Jai revealed that he planned to work on two new directors' films. These two directors have never directed before. Will he invest as the boss? He said no as he would only do his own job. Film productions not only needed money but also other coordination like film production companies. However Goo Jai said that he would charge less or accept symbol laisee when working with new directors. He did not mind the money, in addition actor prices have always been seasonal and fluctuated.
Gao Yuanyuan worked with Goo Jai on the film ROMANCING IN THIN AIR (GO HOI BUT JI LUEN). Earlier they worked on a mobile phone ad in the Mainland. Did Yuanyuan like Goo Jai's type? She said that every time she worked with Goo Jai, her female friends would ignore her as they would be more concerned with Goo Jai.
Cheung Ka Fai also said that he encouraged the young new generation to support Hong Kong films. He wished Hong Kong films would return to the glory days. He was glad to play the role of assisting colleagues. Speaking of Taiwan film's improving performance recently, Ka Fai said that every place's film had highs and lows. Hopefully the Hong Kong depression was a little shorter. As someone from Hong Kong he of course would help Hong Kong films.
