THE chairman of a major Chinese filmmaking company visited the Mandurah Baptist College to support the school’s Chinese film festival.
Mr Wang Ping spoke to a group of years 11 and 12 ATAR media students about the Chinese film industry.
Media specialist teacher Bernard Hart said the visit was a wonderful occasion.
“Mr Wang spoke from the heart and he viewed a Year 11 production and gave good feedback on it,” Mr Hart said.
“He also left a copy of their new film, yet to be released in China, for us to screen at our Chinese film festival.
“We are keen to build further relationships with Mr Wang and his film studio.”
Year 11 media student Rhys Rogers played a short film he made about his family’s recent trip to Tokyo.
Mr Wang commented on its technical style and aesthetics and said it was a fantastic effort.
Also visiting the school was Screenwest chief executive officer Ian Booth, who was keen to strengthen ties between WA and Chinese film companies.
