Under the instruction of a production team led by well-known actor-director Lee Lik-chi, students from YCH Tung Chi Ying Memorial Secondary School produced a movie that premiered at the MCL Telford cinema in Kowloon Bay on Tuesday.
Form Seven students Fong Timbo, Lai Shuk-wa and Evan Wong Yuk-kit and Form Six student Chan Ho-chun took the lead roles in the 100-minute film, Four in Life.
It is based on four true stories of Tung Chi Ying students and co-stars well-known actors such as Susan Tse Suet-sum, Chan Pak-cheung, Gigi Leung and Ken Hung.
Just before the premiere, the director urged the students to examine the movie closely once it was up on the screen.
'If there are any imperfections, they will be magnified many times when you see the film on the screen. It is a learning process I hope you all will treasure,' Lee said.
Young Post talked to the four student leads afterwards. Timbo said he tried to look tired like the patient he played in the film. Shuk-wa, the leading actress, said the most challenging part during the filming was wearing an artificial hand to make the audience believe she had a disabled right hand.
Evan's character is a new star in the entertainment industry, a challenge for the young actor.
But Ho-chun, who plays Tung Chi Ying old boy Ip Chung-long, had one regret: 'All four of us were unable to finish watching the movie, as we needed to do interviews in the cinema concourse. So now we still don't know how we performed in the final part.'
The team will have time to do some fine-tuning before the film is screened at Ma On Shan Classics Cinema in February.
