The Juno Mak Chun Lung directed film SONS OF THE NEON NIGHTS (FUNG LUM FOR SHAN) after 8 months of intense productions finally wrapped up its production for the five major leads; Takeshi Kaneshiro (Gum Sing Mo) went from the first day of production to the end of last year; Tony Leung Ka Fai and Sean Lau Ching Wan both from June last year to November, while lead actress Gao Yuanyuan finished soon after. SONS OF THE NEON NIGHTS wrapped up its production and entered into its post production process.
Last September SONS OF THE NEON NIGHTS released its first behind the scene footage that gave a glimpse into its team, production and style, which already led to a huge response. The behind the scene look this time had even more on set production details and the leads' wraps.
SONS shot in the Mainland, Hong Kong and overseas. The team experienced the challenges of over 30 degree Celsius high and 20 below zero degree Celsius low, almost 60 degrees of temperature difference; from the city to the snowy mountain, from the summer to the winter, with painstakingly created large scale scenes without sparing any detailed honing, the professionalism of the director, the cast and the crew's pursuit for perfect would be embodied everywhere.
In addition, singer and record producer Juno also demanded an unique style for music and creativity. Before the production began, he already invited RIGOR MORTIS (GEUNG SI)'s English composer Nate Connelly to write several dozen songs according to the film style. He listened to them on the set as he got into his work. This time the behind the scene special also put on brand new music for him on a rare occasion.
Juno said, "This film's creative and production process resembles a 'pregnancy' process even more. It is not a streamline production. During the creative and production process, I was particularly strict with myself because my greatest enemy is myself. Luckily the team is just as into it as I was. Everyone waited for hours together for a real snow scene."
