The film NIGHTFALL (DAI JUI BO) yesterday held a production ceremony. Actors Nick Cheung Ka Fai, Simon Yam Tat Wa, Michael Wong Man Tak, Janice Man Wing Shan, Kay Tse On Kay and director Roy Chow Hin Yeung attended. Cheung Ka Fai wore a medical mask due to his flu while Yam Tat Wa recorded the production video with his camera.

Cheung Ka Fai in the film played a character who was out for vengeance after his prison release. To perform he even dropped to 120 pounds. He said that losing weight and training truly were very inhuman, now the director would first shoot his chase with Brother Wa and the naked prison fight scenes. He was worried that he would not be able to handle them physically because earlier he could not even move furniture at home. He was afraid that he was so light that he would be blown away.

However, Ka Fai said that Janice Man's role had the most potential in the film. Originally in the film she was his girlfriend in the film, but later he realized that actually she was his daughter. Janice Man in order to play this character began preparing two and a half months before. First she lost five pounds in hopes of the down and depressed look. At the same time she had to learn to play the piano.

Yam Tat Wa also had to make a sacrifice. He spent four hours to bleach his facial hair. This time he played a neurotic inspector. Brother Wa and Tse On Kay played a couple in the film and had intimate scenes. Yam Tat Wa would also work with Gianna Jun Ji-Hyun on a new film. They shot a roof scene in over 30 degree Celsius heat. She still stood next to the camera when she was not in scene to assist with his acting.
