A dance film with a mix of hip-hop, breakdancing, tai chi and parkour won three awards at the 33rd Hong Kong Film Awards yesterday. A crazy mix, right? Well it was befitting the Chinese translation of the title, roughly ‘A crazy dance style’, or ‘crazy dancing.’
Singapore-based video site Viddsee has introduced a new editorial and marketing feature called BUZZ as it seeks to create more conversations around film content. This means that instead of just showcasing films on its site, Viddsee is taking steps to engage users by explaining the context for each film, so it can lead to a wider variety of responses and social sharing.
This short film was based on a true story. How did you came to find the subject?
