Tsai Yang Ming gets his Life Time Achievement Award. rarely has it seemed that anyonehas been so genuinely moved to be with people who loved his work. For me it was cool seeing someone who literally changed film as we know it.
Bullets over Chinatown and his poster for Woman Revenger. Now the reason I'm posting this picture even though its too dark, is simply because I missed the moment in the lobby when he took the poster out to get it signed. First everyone who saw it went apeshit because its a beautiful poster. Then director Tsai Yang Ming saw it wen crazy, because, by the account I heard, it seemed he couldn't believe that anyone had a poster for it or keep it in such amazing condition,. I did see huge smiles on Jared's and Yang Ming's faces but I missed the photo moment of them connecting. And for the record I am sooooooooo jealous of Jared.
Flixist. This is him holding his lap top showing proof that he actually met Dada Chan and interviewed her. I probably should have made the picture bigger and brighter but I'm jealous that he got to meet her...well not so much that he met her rather that he says he got a hug from her.
Flixist. (One where Hubert is more than just glasses and a hat). Crazily they Alec gave me a camera and had me take a picture. When I was done I pulled out mine and shot this one before they disappeared off to the dark side.
I'll post pictures of the directors and report on the films and Q&As tomorrow, but for now I just wanted to give you a view of life in the cheap seats.
