Shanghai International Film Festival- CCTV-9 program "Rediscovering China"

Well i just came back from the Shanghai International Film Festival with CCTV-9 which was really cool.  We managed to interview many directors, producers and actors/actress from around the world including Clive Jones, Danny Boyle, and Quincy Jones.
I was most impressed with Danny Boyle's relaxed and down to earth manner, a very good and intelligent guy indeed and i had great fun teaching Quincy Jones the real 'survival chinese' the "ni you nan pengyou ma?" Sadly for Quincy, and also for the rest of us, Michael jackson passed away only a few days after our interview. The two were very close friends as QJ produced 'Thiller' and 'Bad' for Michael.  I was most impressed with the way Quincy carried himself and also his intelligence, a true legend, so im sure he will bounce back. He also told me about his big plans to revolutionize the music industry by putting chinese musicians and western musicians together, so everyone be on the look out for big things to come in China from renowned musical producer Quincy Jones.http://www.cctv.com/program/rediscoveringchina/20090629/100840.shtml
