MFA student Chan Siu-kuen wins two awards for her micro film conveying the core value of integrity and probity

以微電影傳達誠信與廉潔核心價值     電影學院碩士生陳小娟獲頒兩獎項

Chan Siu-kuen (Master of Fine Arts in Film, TV and Digital Media, Year 2) of the School of Communication clinched an Excellent Award and a Special Commendation Award for the micro film 3 Coins she wrote and directed at the first Youth Integrity Micro Film Festival organised by the Independent Commission Against Corruption (ICAC).

Siu-kuen said: “It is indeed a great encouragement to the whole crew and the actors who received no or little money for working on the project. It also gives us the drive to continue pursuing our dreams. This is the first time I wrote and directed a film of this scale and there is a lot of room for improvement. My heartfelt thanks to the ICAC and HKBU for the opportunity and the support received during the production period.”

The film tells the story of a young man who was given three coins that could solve problems by an elderly woman after he helped pick up her lost wallet. One day the young man’s father was put in jail for bribery. His family suddenly lost all their money and his sister was mocked by people. The young man tried to use the magic coins to prevent things from happening but found that he was too naive. He realised that he might prevent things from happening once but not many times. So he used the last coin to return things back to the way they were before. The film conveys the core value of integrity and probity, and teaches people not to be greedy as life is not all about money. The most importing thing is to be conscientious and to make the right choices.

The competition attracted about 50 entries. The panel of adjudicators comprised professionals from the film and TV industry. The School of Communication was one of the partners of the Youth Integrity Micro Film Festival project.

傳理學院陳小娟同學 (電影電視與數碼媒體藝術 (製作) 碩士二年級) 憑其創作及執導的微電影《三個金幣》,在廉政公署首次舉辦的「青少年誠信微電影節」中,奪得「卓越大獎」和「特別嘉許獎」。

陳同學說:「是次製作團隊是義務或只收取少許酬勞參與微電影製作,獲獎對整個攝製隊及演員來說是莫大的鼓舞,亦給予我們極大的動力去繼續尋夢。今回是我首次創作及執導如此規模的電影,實在有很大的改進空間。我要衷心感謝廉政公署和浸會大學給予我們機會及在製作期間給予支持。」

故事說一位青年替老婆婆拾回遺失的錢包,獲婆婆贈送能為他解難的三個金幣。有一天,青年的父親因行賄罪名入獄,家庭頓失所有財產,妹妹又被人譏笑。青年試圖以金幣的法力防止事情發生,最終發現自己太天真,明白到防得一次,防不得之前的千萬次,於是利用金幣給予的最後機會,讓時間回到改變一切的原點。作品傳達誠信與廉潔的核心價值,不要貪心,做人最重要的不是錢,而是對得住良心,做正確的事。

今次參賽的微電影約有五十齣,評審團由影視界專業人士組成。傳理學院是「青少年誠信微電影節」的合作夥伴之一。
