(Writing news story on art topic is never easy. Your lead was OK for a starter. One important fact you missed out in your report was that you have forgotten to tell your readers what the stories of "My Way" and "Fish Story" were about. To have two documentary directors talking about the other's works without mentioning a little bit of their own experience would be unfair to them. As a matter of fact, Ada Li did mention that Mr Wong was very good in his pitch before the funding panel and which was considered rare for a Hong Kong film maker.)

“Go Grandriders!” is a documentary about the motorcycling trip around the whole Taiwan of 17 elderly. It has broken the opening record of documentary and gained a good box office record in Taiwan. It would rarely happen in Hong Kong. What makes a good documentary? Two local directors of documentary said that there was no any fixed formula.


“Documentaries do not have a fixed format towards the key to success. No matter different paces and themes, a documentary with a clear message leading audience to think deeply is a good one,” Wong Siu Pong, the local and new director of “Fish Story” said. Apart the free making style, Cheuk Cheung, the director of “My Way” pointed out another advantage of documentary, “filming documentary makes me think about questions I have never asked before. I want to discover more something new about Hong Kong, it is the reason I make documentary.” Together with them, Ada Liu who is the CNEX Foundation Manager also spoke at the same university talk.


Ada Liu pointed out that the pitching culture was weak in Hong Kong. Her organization was a foundation to fund Chinese documentary directors to make good products. She mentioned her organization did not have many pitches from Hong Kong. She explained the reason was that there were not many platforms to fund people to have outsourced productions. However, Li believed this culture would have a great change since there will be more TV channels in the future and thus might need outsourced contents.
