(Your lead was not assertive enough. Directors sharing filming experience with students was not too newsworthy, was it? "To better know a place is to make documentary film about that place", that would make a better lead, would you agree? One big blunder you made in your story was that you have forgot to tell your readers the story of Cheuk's documentary, "My Way". Your readers would have no way to find out why the viewers outside of Hong Kong might not understand the significance of the film.)

Local documentary directors show their support to local documentary making by sharing their filming experiences to students in a university yesterday.

“I want to know more about Hong Kong, so I make documentary,” said Cheuk Cheung, Director of My Way. Before filming a documentary, director had to understand why he or she is making the documentary and who the target audiences are, Cheuk added.

“We should assume they know nothing about the documentary”, as the target audiences of Hong-Kong-made documentaries were not just locals but also Chinese people and people around the globe, said Cheuk.

However, pitching documentary is not easy and is important, as director need money to make documentary so that they had to persuade investors to invest, said Wong Siu Pong, Director of Fish Story.

Wong believed that first step for beginner is to make use of social networks, like Facebook and Youtube, to upload their productions and “make some noise”. Pitching could then be easier.

“Documentary is a medium, and a library of images and cultures,” said Ada Li, CNEX Foundation Manager. Documentaries recorded down the local cultures and society for future generations.

However, “Much more mainlanders are participating in CCDF (CNEX Chinese Documentary Forum) to pitch us documentary stories than Hong Kong people do”, said Li.

“Different in mentality” of mainlanders and Hongkongers was a possible reason of this phenomenon, as Hong Kong is a fast-paced commercial society and people might feel bored about documentaries, Li added.

She urged local students who were interested to participate in documentary making.

CNEX, short form of ‘Chinese Next’ and ‘See Next’, is a non-profit foundation devoted to production, marketing, promotion and distribution of documentaries of the Chinese people.

CNEX had invested in many well-known Chinese documentaries, like China Gate from China, Go Grandriders from Taiwan, and the documentaries Cheuk and Wong made as well.
