《唐山到南洋》:i-周刊的拍摄

photo 1

我们在福建永定拍了i-周刊的封面,给我留下难得的回忆。很少可以那么自在地拍封面,是因为这次是以自己已经非常熟悉的造型出现呢,还是因为现在的我对于拍照已有不一样的见解 -- 或许两者都有吧!

记得拍摄那天我们准备了2套衣服,当天没有拍戏通告,只是得录个制作花絮的访问。因为地点的关系,我们大家就一同行。花絮的团队和i-周刊的团队都很体谅彼此需要完成的任务。我喜欢这样的工作安排,不用从一个地点赶到另一个地点,没有时间的压力就可以专心的完成工作。这也是对于工作,还有涉及完成这份工作的伙伴们的一种尊重。

i-周刊的团队就只有摄影师和记者两个人,我们就跟着摄影师,一边看风景,一边拍照,整个过程很随意,很轻松。有时候我们拍照要穿一些高档服装,带一些首饰,或是做某一个特别时尚的造型,这些其实都成了无形的负担。这次我没有这样的装扮,很自在,很开心,所以很多时候都不感觉镜头的存在,纯粹就是感受这个异乡给我的感觉。还有,身边的一切成为了我们拍照的布景和道具,没有特别设计,只是最真诚地对待。

在拍我的个人照时,来了个“伴儿”。。。

这只狗很亲切,很喜欢咬我,也不是真正的咬,就是在跟我玩吧。。。本来我很担心会感染什么细菌,但是它无邪打动了我。它就是想要人疼,想要人爱 --

其实我们大家不都想要人疼,想要人爱吗?

有时候我们会因为某个人或某样东西的外表,有了先入为主,但是真正接触了之后才发现,原来我们对于别人的判断,正反映了自己缺乏了宽阔的心胸。

Celebrating 30 years of Drama with British elegance

Yesterday was a big day for us, because many artistes were gathered at the TV Theatre to celebrate 30 years of Drama.

It was all quite a rush for us, so I realised I didn’t get to take that many pictures of my own. Here’s one, with my hair stylist for the night, Ryan Yap from Passion.

He asked me what sort of hairstyle I would like to have. I suggested “40s Glamour” and this was what he came up with — ala Marilyn Monroe he said.

Thank you Martin for picking this out for me.

I fell in love with it almost immediately because I’m have been crazy about knee-length dresses for the past few months. With the Duchess herself being here in Singapore, I couldn’t help but be inspired by her simple and elegant dressing. This gold sequin dress by Burberry couldn’t have arrived at a better time.

It’s sexy without revealing too much (actually, it does, but I kind of didn’t want to go that far) and the conservative length was perfect for the occasion. I wanted something that wasn’t too casual like I would wear to a Christmas party, and not too formal like I was going to a Charity Ball.

BTS: A Tale of 2 Cities 乐在双城幕后花絮

Some of you must have seen our promo picture for A Tale of 2 Cities, which is a new drama that will debut on Valentine’s Day on Channel 8.

Our EP Paul Yuen directed this segment personally. He wanted us to come up with a pose as a couple and so we try to figure out in our little groups what to do to give you the wonderful final image.

Here goes…

On this set, lots of fun and laughter!

Some of you might recognise Jones Shi, a local singer who is currently developing his music career in Taiwan.

Julian and Auntie Rose

Kae is so adorable I'm absolutely in love with him! He was supposed to teach me how to play Cluedo on his iPod Touch but he ended up taking over the entire game.

We have an audience...some of them eventually went up the structure and watched us from behind the grills.

Another audience seating...

They have made themselves very comfortable.

If you missed this heart-warming telemovie, you can now catch Love in a Cab on xinmsn!

Love in a Cab — Love out of a Cab

Director Han is such a humourous and easy-going person to work with, that I decided to do a series of pictures to show just how much I love him!

Love in a Cab — Looking Good

I’ve heard many people comment about how beautiful the lighting is in the telemovie. The following pictures will give you an idea the set-up required.

You will see these big white boards consistently in the rest of the pictures. I was told they are called "butterfly". I have no idea how the name came about but I love them, because they are so flattering!!

The "cookie" in the foreground cuts up the light so there's more texture to the way the scene is lit.

In broad daylight, it can get really bright!
