Finishing up SECOND LIFE OF THIEVES
Immediately after I returned from Tokyo, I headed off to do the reshoots for Woo Ming Jin's SECOND LIFE OF THIEVES (which I co-wrote, produced and edited).
We actually shot the bulk of SECOND LIFE OF THIEVES last November, and had been spending the time in the next few months revamping and reworking the story as we edit it. When we work in such an improvisational, free-wheeling style, it's necessary to craft the film in such a way.
In fact, I now feel silly for posting this on Facebook last year.
Of course, the most unexpected development (for me anyway) is how SECOND LIFE OF THIEVES' protagonist (played by Tan Mayjune) has suddenly evolved into a character who has also appeared in my own film RIVER OF EXPLODING DURIANS. (thus effectively making both films connected in a style similar to AVENGERS, awesome!)
Mayjune initially plays a character named Su Ling in the earlier iterations of SECOND LIFE OF THIEVES,
But now, in the latest version that we were just shooting, Su Ling has become a femme fatale-ish character named Sandy (actually, they remain the same person, it's just that she prefers to be called Sandy). Sandy with her streaks of blue hair and a deceptively cold demeanour that masks her broken heart.
The Sandy character appeared in a few scenes of my film RIVER OF EXPLODING DURIANS.
The sights I saw during the shoot were, predictably, beautiful.
