The manager of a non-profit organization, CNEX said it was difficult for directors to publish their documentaries since the publishers think they could hardly gain much profit. A documentary director Chunk Cheung added, the prime reason for him to produce documentaries is to “know myself”. As documentary filmmakers, to show your work to the mass through any kinds of platforms is crucial.

CNEX, a non-profit organization funds the production and promotion of documentaries. It offers chances for the contemporary Chinese documentary filmmakers to produce and showcase their work.

Ask for plain ideas

Directors who are interested in making documentaries insist on “recording “ a realistic story and project it to audiences. One of the directors who is funded by CNEX ,Siu Pong Wong said, documentary is telling the story about people.

“The documentary filmmakers must realize the value and the core message of their stories and how to interact with their audiences. Most importantly, the story must be convincing,” Wong said.

Filmmakers should keep their idea as primitive as possible or it would frustrate the audiences since they can hardly read the message, Wong added.

Make differential stories

A documentary director of “My way”, Cheuk Chueng said it is important for documentary filmmakers to realize why they make a documentary. Secondly, they should realize what motivates people choose and watch your film. He added, it is decisive for filmmakers to make their work distinct from others in order to draw the professional directors’ attention and to get the funding.

“ I make the documentary called “My Way”, it is about the present condition of acting as female role in Hong Kong since I want to know more about this society.” Cheuk added.

Culture is changing

CNEX manager Li Wing Yan said, comparing with Taiwan and mainland China, Hong Kong has less products showcase to their organization. She noted, it is regarded to the poor culture of producing documentaries, since most of the media companies have their in-house production departments while the foreign countries tend to outsource their project to individual production houses. Thus, it stimulates the creation of documentaries.

She noted, however, apart from Radio Television Hong Kong outsource their documentary projects, it becomes a trend that much more companies are willing to outsource their projects. Thus, they will ask for contents from local documentary directors. It helps to boost the individual documentary productions.
