Johnnie To Kei Fung, Anthony Wong Chau Sun, Sylvia Chang (Cheung Ngai Ga) two nights ago attended the Fresh Wave 2012 international short film exhibit opening ceremony. Polish director Jerzy Skolimowski's DEEP END was the opening film. Two nights ago the director personally attended and shared his experience with new comers. Wong Chau Sun said that he supported new comers' filmmaking, but he did not have time. Thus To Sir was responsible for cultivating new comers. He said that now he is busy with a play rehearsal, learning his lines has been very tough. Speaking of Show Luo inviting him to watch his concert, he said, "I invite him to watch my play."
Did To Sir tell new comers that the film industry was cruel? He said that Chau Sun just said it. Film required passion, basic creative spirit and relied on creative abilities. He said that this time each person received HK$40,000 for production, next year HK$50,000 will be considered. However actually the amount still will not be enough, which was still good as they had to come up with ways to raise financing.
