RIVER OF EXPLODING DURIANS Film Shoot: Day 1

January 2nd, 2014.

I started shooting my debut feature film RIVER OF EXPLODING DURIANS. It's a surreal feeling, what seemed improbable just a few weeks ago became probable.

So excited that I immediately took a selfie of myself before the shoot started.






A ensemble piece, two of the leads in my film are the young actors Koe Shern 高圣 (recently-crowned Best Actor winner at the latest edition of BMW Shorties) and Joey Leong 梁祖仪, playing Meng and Mei Yan, two runaway teenagers.

5 more hours to sleep before I begin Day 2!
