IN THE MOVIE business in Asia, it has long been standard technique to set aside $10 million for special effects and $10 for a script.
That's all going to change now that a Hong Kong film story ("The Departed") has swept the Oscars in Hollywood. Several more HK movie scripts have been purchased by Hollywood, so this is a good time for writers here to produce their screenplays. I'm hoping to get a screenwriters "cell-group" going in Hong Kong next month. If anyone is interested, click here for details: I want to be a screenwriter.
