Jaycee Chan and I presented Outstanding and the Best Experimental awards at the 6th Global Chinese University Student Film and TV Festival on the 24th April. It was organized by Hong Kong Baptist University and TVB.
I've been teaching Scriptwriting at the 1st year MFA program at the Baptist University for four months now. The photos below were taken by my students Seth Henderson and Candy Wong.
Award winning actor, producer and director, Eric Tsang and director Andrew Lau (Infernal Affairs) giving advice to film students.
Andre Matthias, composer for The Drummer, was in Hong Kong for five days. He came from Hamburg to attend the Hong Kong Film Awards where he was nominated for Best Original Film Score. We were proud and happy to have him here.
The last time Andre was here it was 14 years ago. It was terrific that he came back to Hong Kong as a nominee after all the hard work he put in in Germany.

We brought Andre to the Peak to look at the amazing cityscape but alas, it was so foggy we couldn't see 50 meters ahead of us. Actually Andre enjoyed the fog a lot more than we did.

We saw Once at the Broadway Cinematheque and had a coffee at Kubrick before the film, the cafe bookshop next door
Had lunch with Andre where we shot Tony Leung Ka-Fai's restaurant in The Drummer
