There's a trailer for The One Days: HK up on YouTube

It's looks worth checking out. I like the concept of shooting a film in a day. You can order the DVD here.

This looks fantastic. Definitely gonna look into getting it. This is the way I like seeing Hong Kong in the movies, backgrounding what appear to be naturalistic vignettes, although I can't shake the feeling that it's a bit top-heavy with pop-stars-in-the-making, but I guess we'll see. Kinda wish they didn't upload those three films though. With YouTube already crawling with full-length features uploaded illegally, this seems like it will only encourage some thief to upload the remaining films eventually, which will only hurt DVD sales. Of course, it'll expand the audience exponentially, but that doesn't give the filmmakers anything to work with in the future . . . :(

Yeah, me too. Definitely makes me yearn for another trip to HK.

You may be right, but in my case, seeing the shorts, especially "Set Free", convinced me to get the DVD. In fact, I just placed my order! :D
