October 21, 2010

Balwinder Singh, 15, Delia Memorial School (Hip Wo)
The film would be about a “crazy” young man who knows about the Illuminati – a secret society said to be controlling the world. He would be hunted down by the group for trying to expose them. As the Illuminati is a powerful organisation which wants to build a new world order, many famous and influential people, such as Barack Obama and Justin Bieber, would be in the movie.

Alice Leung, 16, Ho Fung College
I would ignore Hollywood celebrities and invite comedians and musicians from YouTube videos to act in my Hollywood movie. Then they can show off their talents in the first film ever to have YouTube “stars” play all the roles.

Aaron De Silva, 18, ELCHK Lutheran Secondary School
I would make a documentary about our planet. I think the earth’s biggest problem is pollution. The movie would be a vision of what the planet will look like in future if we leave our daily routines unchanged. The planet meets our every need but we exploit it. That’s selfish.

Melody Lam, 14, POCA Wong Siu Ching Secondary School
Iwould produce a fantasy movie about heaven and hell. I want to encourage people to think about their attitude to life and make them ask this question: Are we living in heaven or hell? We can choose to live meaningfully or we can spend our time feeling sad and regretful. The film would include 4-D effects, such as a moving chair with cold or hot air blowing from it.

Akira Law, 15, Ho Fung College
I would produce a movie about music. I would get everyday people like you and me to participate in it instead of the superstars. Anyone who loves music could join. There would be no plot, no storyline. The movie would be about music lovers from different countries getting to know each other and finally playing music together.

Elizabeth Pong, 14, St Stephen’s Girls’ College
I would make a movie about a singer who has had plastic surgery. But later on, she realises that behind the glamorous veil, her life as a famous singer is dull. To make matters worse, she suffers from depression. Finally, she has to make a choice between fame and family. She gives up her singing career and becomes a journalist. Fame always comes at a price but most people don’t realise it. The film would emphasise how precious family and friends are, and put the spotlight on the darker side of fame.

Alexander Chuk, 15, Diocesan Boys’ School
It would be a drama about a person looking for reasons to live and for inspiration in an empty life. Nowadays many of us are working aimlessly, and some of our goals are materialistic. This is manipulating and poisoning us. We should get to know ourselves better, and learn how to live and love.

Christy Lai, 15, Ho Fung College
I’d like to make a movie about a complete reversal of today’s world. It would be a film about a world where animals dominate. We, as human beings, would be treated cruelly by the animals in this new world, just as we treat them now. I hope this would remind people to treasure all living things in the world.

    Elizabeth’s idea seems quite similar to a korean movie i saw a few years ago, but still not bad.

    Melody’s entry reminds me of theme park theatres. it would be really nice if they brought it in to the movie theatres.

    IMO, even if Akira’s movie doesnt have a plot, the music and the lyrics itself will tell a story! i dont really see the problem.

    wow… Justin Bieber in a movie. any Justin Bieber fans out there? im more on the Jonas Brothers or James Bond side…..

    definitely Alice, there are a lot gifted people on youtube, i think they really deserve to be in a hollywood production.

    Chris> You seem bored quite easily. What’s wrong with idealism? Most Hollywood movies are anyway. What would be your answer?
    I like Christy’s, Elizabeth’s and Alice’s ideas most.
    Akira > although I like that you want to promote the free spirit of music, I agree with Chris in saying that you can’t make a good movie without a storyline.

    generic… generic… generic… and idealistic to the point of boredom.
    Balwinder: Dan Brown much?
    Alice: We already have Wong Fu Productions doing that for you.
    Aaron: Learn from the mistake that is Al Gore’s “Inconvenient Truth”; it has become a metaphor of boredom.
    Melody: I like the idea, but you went too far with the “4-D effect”. Simple with an interesting plot would suffice.
    Akira: “No plot. No storyline… no Hollywood actors”, even in a Film Studies course that kind of film would get a zero. Nowadays even music videos have complex, even arduous, storylines.
    Elizabeth: Overused plot –> the choice between work and family. Rather unrealistic. Sounds more like a boring Disney TV show (Miley Cyrus anyone?) than a Hollywood film.
    Christy: Probably one that I would like to see. Don’t make this about preaching good and kindness though, that’s not what Hollywood is about.

    Cheers
