The market size of Hong Kong movie industry had reduced more than 30%, causing lots of local filmmakers transferring their business to the Mainland market.

Speaking at a talk in Hong Kong Shue Yan University, Professor Emeritus of Hong Kong Baptist University, Cheuk Pak Tong believed that Hong Kong filmmakers had greater edge in entering to the Mainland movie market.

“Hong Kong movie industry has certain standard and follows the regulations which gives more confidence to the investors,” Cheuk said.

Comparing to the shooting in the Mainland, mainland movies had low credibility, Check said. The number of actors and the cost of vehicles could be exaggerated and part of the capital would not be spent on filmography, he added.

Cheuk suggested Hong Kong filmmakers should build a solid foundation in Hong Kong before heading to the Mainland, learning the proper way of movie making.

“Apart from gaining work experience, spending time on understanding the environment is very essential,” Cheuk said.

Movies were comprised of local culture, living habits and the details of life, Check said. Hong Kong filmmakers could not stand out from the crowd if they knew nothing about China, he added.

Facing the strict film censorship in China, a lot of students were worried that movies would become homogeneity to suit Chinese government’s likes.

Cheuk believed that the relaxation of film censorship towards Hong Kong movies was possible in China if Chief Executive spoke for them.

“Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area enhance the communication between Hong Kong and mainland China, so Chief Executive has the right to speak for Hong Kong people,” Cheuk said.

However, Cheuk doubted if Hong Kong Chief Executive had the courage to give out any ideas to benefit Hong Kong filmmakers.

Besides, Check criticised that Hong Kong government provided limited assistance to the movie industry.

“Hong Kong government sponsored 3.3 movies per year which only counted 10% of the whole industry,” Cheuk said.

Hong Kong government should provide more financial assistance to the movie production, Cheuk said. Thing that brought Hong Kong international was movie, but not architecture or finance, he added. --165030 2019年2月20日 (三) 14:28 (CST)
