When three famous Hong Kong sons met in kindergarten, they based their games on American fantasy films. As adults, they are still playing. Only now they plan to rival movies such as Shrek and Toy Story with just one-tenth of the budget. And all their fantasies are Hong Kong-grown. DragonBlade - Asia's first full-length computer-graphic animated movie - is the brainchild of ship-building scion Antony Szeto (left, with two 'stars' of the movie), Sean Ann (grandson of late politician Dr Ann Tse-kai) and Trevor Morris (Karen Mok Man-wai's big brother). The martial arts film - which is halfway through production - is being made for just US$10 million (HK$78 million) thanks to distinctively Hong Kong creativity and ingenuity. 'We have had to rethink the process,' explained Szeto, DragonBlade's director from film production company DCDC's office in San Po Kong. Instead of building the computer images from scratch, they are using film of China's best martial artists as the basis for their animation. SAR has had a sneak preview and the results are stunning. 'It's more live and realistic,' said Szeto, who, as well as having worked for the family business, is a stuntman and wushu master. The film is due to be released in December next year.
