Academy of Film student wins Best Director

電影學院學生勇奪最佳導演獎

Tsang Po-yi, a student of the Academy of Film (AF) of the School of Communication (Higher Diploma in Creative Film Production, Year 2) won the Best Director Award for her short film Handmade Bread in the 3rd Guangdong, Hong Kong, Macau and Taiwan Micro Film Cultural Exchange Week.

The short film follows the main female character and her boyfriend as they attempt to stop her father from closing down their traditional Hong Kong bakery by creating new types of bread with the master baker. Throughout the process, there were numerous conflicts between the duo from different generations. Luckily, the bakery could be saved in the end.

Po-yi stated that Handmade Bread shows the interactions among different generations in Hong Kong. The young and old can accomplish their own goals after a period of adjustment. She said the biggest challenge in producing the film was to find a traditional bakery for the shooting location. Thankfully, with the support of a group of good friends and classmates, the whole team finished producing the film.

Upon receiving further recognition for Handmade Bread, Po-yi expressed her gratitude towards her film teachers for their support in this endeavour. She thanked Mr Norman Chan, Lecturer of AF, for his continued support and encouragement, and paid special tribute to Mr Tommy Wai, a part-time Lecturer of AF, for assisting with sound mixing, as well as Mr Francis Ko, a part-time Lecturer of AF, for his guidance. She said she will continue to work hard to produce better films in the future.

傳理學院電影學院學生曾寶怡(創意電影製作高級文憑課程二年級)憑短片《土發麵包》,勇奪第三屆「粵港澳台微影視作品文化交流周」專業組的「最佳導演」獎。

短片故事講述女主角與男友為了阻止父親結束香港傳統麵包老店,聯同店舖老師傅合創新款麵包;過程中,兩代人相處不時「擦槍走火」,最後成功保住麵包店。

寶怡表示,《土發麵包》展現了香港的人情面貌,新舊人經磨合後,可以實現各自的理想。她說,籌拍過程最大困難,是要找到一間有傳統特色而又能借出場地拍攝的麵包店。她感謝一班同學好友的支持,同心協力完成作品。

《土發麵包》再次獲獎,曾寶怡感謝電影學院講師陳學人先生一直以來的支持和鼓勵,又特別感激兼職講師韋啟良先生幫忙配樂,及兼職講師高冠玉先生的指導。她未來會加緊學習,以創作更多優秀作品。
