It was with enthusiasm that the IFFAM team welcomed the ideas that I have been developing with director Maxim Bessmertny, thus supporting our arduous attempt to write and produce feature films. Especially “Foreign Cop”, which the team selected to take to the Torino Film Lab in 2019. In Torino, we had a great opportunity to mature our intentions, by receiving feedback and notes from experienced professionals, a valuable assist that helped us detect the weaknesses and strengths of our plot, as well as have a broader view of the way the film industry operates. Besides the hard work, it was amazing to spend time with such a diversified group of filmmakers from Macau in Italy, exchanging ideas regarding film and art with other people from all over the globe. Later, in 2019 as work went on, we had the chance to pitch our project in the IFFAM public pitching session, and more recently in the Cannes Marché du Film. The contacts we established have shown to be essential to take a step further in the quality of our local productions, and in getting our films financed. I hope we continue to work closely with IFFAM, and together help establish the Macau Film Industry.

TFL was a memorable opportunity given by the IFFAM. The programme really pushed us to deliver and work very hard according to the guide set by our experience mentor. The best part of the programme is the connection we get from film makers from around the world and learn from their projects. On top of that, we have got the opportunity to prepare our pitch and got to showcase our talent to these people. The most fruitful aspect of the programme is of course the opportunity to learn from experienced practitioners from the international film industry and have them acting as our mentor throughout the programme. Being part of this prestigious TFL programme also gave us good track-record as we have been selected to participate in this programme.

这是我第一次入选与参加 IFFAM 合作的「TFL NEXT Feature Film」工作坊,为期一个月工作坊,以修改学员的故事大纲为目的。

对于像我这种,没受过传统电影学院训练的新导演,跟着世界各地的导师和同学一起讨论,也有助更了解自己正在撰写的故事。

而十分国际化的「TFL NEXT Feature Film」工作坊,也让我重新感受到,世界各国的创作人是如何看待来自澳门的故事。
作为土生土长的创作人,我们又能如何满足国际上对澳门电影的期望,同时又找到切合本地文化和感觉的影像特色,这或许是 IFFAM 选出我们参加如此深具国际野活动的原因。

借此感谢我在「TFL NEXT Feature Film」工作坊的导师 Eilon Ratzkovsky,以及 IFFAM 的总监Mike Goodridge 一直对澳门新导演的关注。

2019年6月及11月,有幸入选为全澳三个项目之一,赴意大利都灵进行电影项目培训计划。「都灵电影项目培训计划」历史悠久,在欧洲甚至全世界响具盛名,于限定期间进行不同类型的培训,是次参与的计划是针对编剧及监制范畴的环节,与各地的电影业人士进行交流,并跟从导师学习专业的技巧,于6月份的第一阶段学习编剧、11月份的第二阶段学习监制技巧及市场营销。在这两个不同季节的学习期间,处于异国之下很容易便投入欧洲的艺术文化中,并且在过程中更为专注,完全感受到创作自由之美,更重要是与世界各地人士的交流经验实在难能可贵。在第一阶段,导师结合很多实用的技巧,以及分享编剧的模式,透过不同问题、作业,最后公开演说自己的作品,同时得到知名电影制作人的意见,令自己的剧本更上一层楼。在第二阶段,主要分享在作为监制、制片方面的经验,并参与「都灵国际电影节(TIFF)」不同的讲座、电影及分享,最深剧是大会安排了交流晚宴,与欧洲知名的电影公司代表接触,在导师带领下发表自己的项目,并交换了联络方式,跟进自己项目未来的发展。

In 2019, I had the pleasure of participating in the Script and Creative Production Workshop and Training organised by MFTPA and the Torino Film Lab. A varied group of creatives and filmmakers from Macau, Hong Kong and Taiwan departed from Hong Kong Airport together to attend the Torino Film Lab, Italy in two separate workshops in June and November 2019.

I was developing a 1980s thriller screenplay entitled ‘Mendonza’, a story about a detective who is hired to investigate a murder and robbery at one of the casinos in Macau. The project needed a strong script and I invited Jorge Cordeiro dos Santos to join me on this trip as we had both been working on a short film together.

Having developed most of my screenplays under an attic at home, it was a pleasure to be travelling to Europe where one could get fresh ideas and input in intensive classes between delightful Italian meals. We were able to work fiercely on assignments given to us by our mentor Eilon Ratzkovsky, himself a veteran producer.

A great part of this programme was the opportunity I feared at first – pitching your ideas in front of the other thirty or so workshop participants. I always thought it was not the job of the filmmaker to pitch his ideas and would think a guardian angel would do it for me. Luckily, this lab let me confront this fear of voicing out my own ideas and eventually the entire Macau group became much more confident. This was followed by observing the Torino Film Lab final presentations in November which definitely gave me insight and rehearsal ideas for our own presentations at the IFFAM Market that same December.

第一届参与影展是因为自己的首部剧《骨妹》在影展首映,当时的心情是相当紧张的,除了自己的第一个小孩要面世,也因为对这个影展不熟悉,所以感到害怕。记得当时还有另一个海外的影展邀约做首映,但因为希望第一部电影的首映能在自己的家乡举行,加上又是第一届的澳门影展,觉得别具意义,所以最后还是决定在澳门作全球首映。老实说第一届的时候有太多事情都很新鲜,所以不知不觉的就在兴奋中就度过了。在影展里,《骨妹》也受到很多媒体的关注,为电影和投资都打了一支强心针。而且后续其实影展还是有持续关注《骨妹》,也把电影推荐给世界各地不同的国际影展,让《骨妹》有一个更好的平台面对国际观众

第二届影展的时候,换成是一个观众的身份,很多事情就能看得更清晰。当然,在澳门的观影人口不多,这对影展来说确实是一个硬伤。看到很多好的作品但观众廖廖,无论对电影的创作者,或是对影展本身都不是一件好事。但观众是需要很长时间培养的,特别是对于这种非商业类型的影展电影,单靠一两年的时间,实在很难瞬间办到

第三届影展,我转换了一个身份参与,去了参加影展中的项目市场。这个项目市场,会选世界各地十几个还没开展的电影项目,让大家聚在一起进行介绍会,也邀请了国际的电影策展人及投资人来听电影项目的介绍,目的是希望促成电影项目能够获得投资并开展。这个项目市场,是从第二届开始就有澳门项目的加入,影展方面也是希望能有更多的澳门电影人能参与其中。过程当中,确实是获益良多,影展有专门的老师来指导我们讲解项目的技巧,而且因为其他项目都是来自世界各地,可以跟其他组别的导演和电影人有深入交流,了解到国际市场上的其他可能性。更重要当然是遇到一些有潜力的投资者,让电影项目有展开的可能

到了第四届国际影展,这次又是一个新的身份。是以监制的角色带着两部澳门电影《伊娜:初生之犊》和《澳门之年》回到影展。监制对我来说是个新尝试,当导演的时候,总是被照顾得很好,这次当监制有很多不足的地方,但出发点还是希望导演们能只专注在创作的部份,其他非关创作的事情能尽量帮导演们分担。两部电影都在影展首映,不是一件简单的事情,幸运的今年有澳门的特别单元,影片也顺利入选,让澳门的导演和演员们,有一个国际的平台作首映。作为导演的时候,可能也没有特别思考很多很续的事情,但转换了一个新份,反而更有动力希望这两部影片都能走得更远,有更好的发展。这次影展里,也遇到很多不同地方的电影人,对这两部电影都给予了不同的意见,希望在获得这些意见后,我们可以带着澳门的电影,走到更多不同的地方,让更多的人知道澳门也是有电影的,而我们也在一步一步的努力当中
