I just got news that Gallants 打擂台, a film I had the privilege of being a part of, just won the award for Best Film in Hong Kong. It’s quite humbling to know that I contributed to such an accomplishment in however small of a way.

The film also won for Best Male Lead (Teddy Robin).

If you’re looking for me in the poster. Dead center. Neckbrace. Can’t miss.

You can find out more about the movie here. Normally, I wouldn’t rely on wikipedia for accuracy but, to my surprise they covered most of the bases this time.

The film was released in Hong Kong theaters June of last year. Since then, it’s made it rounds at various film festivals and the feedback has been relatively positive, even winning the Audience Favorite Award at the NY Asian Film Festival.

As evident in the trailer, it is definitely paying homage to the kung fu flicks of the 60’s and 70’s.

This one’s special for me. After all, it is my first foray into acting since moving to Hong Kong in ’08. I am grateful for the opportunity and most of all the priceless learning experience.

I pray the Lord continues to open doors that are in accordance with His plans and to close those that are not open by His doing.
