MULTICULTURAL CHANNEL PRESENTS...
November 2, 2008
been asking, and here it is! Shaw Multicultural Channel
presents a special program showcasing the winners of
MIGHTY ASIAN MOVIEMAKING MARATHON 2005 - 2007! Tune
in to see provocative and creative 10-minute local films
produced by teams of filmmakers during each year's
I am happy and excited that Shaw is putting on this special
event, and that you have a chance to catch some incredibly
creative short films. And I'm even more excited that 2 of
the 9 movies will be films I was lucky to be a part of. Details
of the airing can be found here.
I first started competing in this contest in 2006, and
our film entry, "Rise of the Kitara" won 2nd
place that year! I got to play Kitara, a character most
would never, ever, think of casting me as... and it was
sooo much fun.
A roller coaster ride of two opposites, their chance
meeting, and their struggles to de-cloak each other's true
identities. "Andy" (Ed
Fong) a young cable professional goes about his normal day
when he meets his unexpected fantasy girl, "Kitara" (Lannette
New). Fearful and curious for her son, "Mom" (Shirley
Fong) starts her own investigation to expose this lady
2007 brought about new levels of challenges as our team
decided to make a musical film in 10 days -10 short, sweaty,
fun, and rewarding days. The end result was, "E.V.E.S.",
and we managed to come in 3rd place that year. As well,
we won the 2007 Audience Choice Award!
E.V.E.S. is a sci-fi musical set in the future where women
rule all. OK, there's more to it than that, but I've misplaced
the spiel and am too excited to let you know about the showing
that I can't wait. What I can tell you is that there's good,
there's evil, it's sexy, it's sweet, there's craziness and
more, PLUS there's a huge musical/dance sequence to boot.
I hope you get a chance to catch the films. I'm so proud
of our accomplishments, as I'm sure the other groups are
of theirs. And what a great way to share them with you!
