Part 1 of 5 - The Introduction (Pardon the Shaky-cam)
This afternoon marked the DVD launch of Glen Goei's boxset of The Blue Mansion and Forever Fever DVDs at Books Kinokuniya, although the boxset has been available on sale through the official movie website for some time already. Still, nothing beats having a launch at a traditional bricks and mortar shop, and having the director on hand to share his experiences in making both films and little known facts about the productions, his work style and ethics as well as to field questions from curious onlookers as well as fans.
Presenting the director Glen Goei, hosted by actress Tan Kheng Hua:

And you heard it here first, which Glen himself had shared during today's session:
1. His next film is called Yellow Flowers, written by Ken Kwek (who also wrote The Blue Mansion and now into its script finalization stage, which will probably begin production Dec 2011 / Jan 2012 (can't wait!)
2. There will be a stage production of Forever Fever slated for June 2013 (that's two years from now)!
