Academy of Film lecturer selected as Oscar judge

電影學院講師榮膺奧斯卡評審

Mr Poon Hang-sang, Lecturer of the Academy of Film of the School of Communication, was one of only three Hong Kong representatives invited by The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences to join the Oscar’s board of judges in 2016.
 
A film industry veteran, Mr Poon has been filming since the 1980s and received the award for Best Cinematography from various film festivals. This invitation is on account of two of his productions, namely Ip Man 2: Legend of the Grandmaster and Kung Fu Hustle. He said, “When I received the email invitation I was calm, while my family and friends congratulated me excitedly and the media immediately invited me for an interview. I regard this invitation to be on the Oscar’s board of judges as a recognition of all Hong Kong film makers; it is an honour for the past, present and the future efforts in driving competition and progress in the sector.”
 
As an alumnus of HKBU, Mr Poon attributes this glory to the University. He stated, “It is not my glory, it is the glory of my alma mater.”
 
As a lecturer of the Academy of Film, Mr Poon will try his very best to enrich students’ abilities and techniques with his own experience so that they may contribute to the future of the film industry. He hopes to see more graduates of the University making a mark in the international arena.
 
The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, the organiser of the Oscar, has announced this year’s invitation list of Oscar jury members. Of the 683 new invitees, three are from Hong Kong, all of whom are renowned cinematographers. For more details, please visit http://oscars.org/news/academy-invites-683-membership.

傳理學院電影學院講師潘恒生先生近日獲美國電影藝術與科學學會邀請,出任2016年奧斯卡金像獎的評審委員,為三位來自香港的代表之一。
 
潘先生於80年代投身電影界,歷年來在多個電影節獲頒最佳攝影獎。學會欣賞他在《葉問2》及《功夫》出色的攝影技巧,因而邀請他擔任奧斯卡評委。
 
他坦言:「最初收到邀請電郵時,沒有特別的感覺;直至接到家人和朋友的恭賀,以及接受完媒體訪問後,我仔細一想,能在眾多前輩和同儕中被選中,代表香港電影業界擔任國際享譽的獎項評委,頓時增添了一份使命感。雖然是次獲邀的香港業界人數不多,但足以顯示國際對香港電影界的肯定,實在值得慶賀。」
 
作為浸大校友,潘先生將此榮耀歸予母校,並表示未來會著重為業界培訓新一代人才,希望分享自己的經驗,從而豐富學生的技巧和知識,讓更多浸大學生在國際舞台上大放異彩。
