Full list of 12 short films: 浸大60周年校慶6×10短片 HKBU 6×10 Short Films. Worth a watch even some are better than others.
Listening to Joani’s interview reminds aspiring and practicing documentarians how good documentaries are made and the importance of making good documentaries.
Director/producer/independent reporter Kempton Lam has made three full-length documentaries from 2004 – 2015. (Cantonese with English subtitles 廣東話、英文字幕) Collectively, the three documentaries are known as his “Revolution Trilogy” 「革命三部曲」. Kempton’s debut documentary Long Hair Revolution 「長毛革命」 has been collected by the Canadian national archive since 2009. You can watch the three films at this YouTube Playlist (projected on your big screen HD TV or on your computer here). Enjoy!

2016/01/12 update: 【股東擬賣《100毛》】林日曦：我傾家蕩產買番先！
Here is an excerpt of a public FB comment I left at 林日曦’s page.
林老板，可以用錢(就算要“傾家盪產” :) )買番就最好啦。但係對方咁多錢，你就算儲埋好多好多散紙都一定*唔會*掟死佢，因為對方唔等錢洗，一D都無須要賣。 :(
I don’t have access to your private shareholders’ agreement so I don’t know what this (see below) fully implies “the Group [One Media Group] exercises significant influence […] the Group has the power to participate in making the financial and operating policy decisions of this company”.
It does sound potentially “influential” (don’t have to be “bad”). You and your lawyers know more about the legal implications. Good luck.

2015/08/18 update: Mandy’s full interview.
// 推介呢個由樹仁新傳網 鍾溥敏Mandy Chung @Symedialab 做的林日曦足本76分鐘的專訪。由樹仁學生問問題的第三部分亦很精彩。因為足本又長的關係，很多時間給Roy發表他的見解，𣎴須被剪短。同意Roy與否，其實比港台做的九分鐘”原來錢作怪”片段更能好好的明白Roy的想法及動機.//
2015/08/07 update: 好好睇，好多語別不同的想法，老少咸宜，一齊學嘢，各取所需！ RTHK 原來錢作怪：林日曦 (start time 13:14)
我慢人幾年，最近先留意到 林日曦 (Facebook Lin Ri Xi) 呢個黑紙、100毛創辦人。而家追睇返一D佢嘅資料。順便同大家分享吓。 2015/05/31 SyMediaLab 鍾溥敏 Mandy Chung, 人物訪問 • 林日曦 黑面神林日曦 2013/08/10 Apple Daily, 火熱悶棍 林日曦 2015/02/02 SCMP, “100Most – a satirical weekly that’s a hit with Hong Kong’s Occupy generation”
“The friends decided they would only meet regularly if there was a joint project to work on together. That decision yielded Black Paper, an A5 size card filled on one side with their pithy political commentary and musings on life and art. The friends each shelled out HK$2,000 to print the first 2,000 copies, which went on sale on New Year’s Day, 2010. Priced at just HK$1, the cards sold out within two days. An additional print run of 20,000 copies was also quickly snapped up. By 2011, the monthly newsletter was being distributed at all 7-Elevens and sales rose to 100,000 copies. Success soon inspired the trio to dream of a bigger platform to air their views:100Most. They quit their day jobs and started the magazine with HK$1 million accumulated from Black Paper’s revenues. “We were fortunate to have a pool of money,” Chan Keung says.“
P.S.林日曦本名”徐家豪” (Roy Tsui according to Wikipedia) P.P.S. Some video clips. 新傳網名人專訪 – 林日曦：做人要習慣短視 2012/12/10 Apple Daily (article) 黑紙林日曦呻：香港搵食好艱難 (according to this clip, One Media Group 萬華媒體 (HKG 0426) is an investor, Chairman Tan Sri Datuk Sir Hiew-king Tiong also owns 明報 Ming Pao holding) “林日曦與商台舊同事阿Bu及陳強2010年合作推出《黑紙》，初時每月一期，到今年每周一期。林形容做《黑紙》等於夾band，分別只是「人哋jam歌，我哋jam字」。”
Note: According to the MD&A section of One Media Group 2014/15 annual report under performance of other media investments section (presumably the smaller and less material investments) (emphasis added),
“Blackpaper Limited is engaged in the publication of “BlackPaper”, “100 Most” and books as well as the provision of creative multimedia services and advertising campaigns. It recorded a satisfactory performance during the year.” Investment of HK$1,000,000 for a 10% effective equity interest. Quoting 2011/12 annual report, (emphasis added) “On 1st February 2012, the Group subscribed for 10% of the entire issued share capital as enlarged by the subscription of the shares in Blackpaper Limited at the investment cost of HK$1,000,000. Although the Group holds less than 20% of the equity shares of this company, the Group exercises significant influence by virtue of its contractual right to nominate and remove one director out of the four directors, all having equal voting rights, which form the board of directors of this company. In addition, the Group has the power to participate in making the financial and operating policy decisions of this company.” Questions: How “significant” are those influence? Can the 10% shares be bought back by Blackpaper Ltd. and at what terms and prices? I hope Blackpaper had a good advisor when the terms were signed in 2012 Feb. In hindsight, looks like Sir Hiew-king Tiong or, more likely, his team has made a nice investment considering the potential for long term success of Blackpaper Ltd.

I left this following comment for the article “齊昕的父親“,
P.S. In HongKongers (our) long path of struggle towards true universal suffrage & democracy against the massive BJ-machinery and impotent/ruthless HKSAR governments (Tung, Tsang, Leung, et al) and ruthless police, I think more HKers need to try *harder* (much harder) to NOT simply insult people. Lets try *not* to lose a slightest shrewd of our own humanity in our journey to try to achieve our goals & ideals! I want democracy, universal suffrage and DO NOT want to become another insulting/impolite asshole in the process! Basically, I want my cake and eat it too!”
