Win­ner of the 2012 BMW Short­ies, Dick Chua re­cently pre­miered Pizza, which de­picts the mur­der of a three-year-old based on ac­tual events. “When we re­ceived the RM75,000 pro­duc­tion grant from BMW Group Malaysia, my team and I felt pas­sion­ate about work­ing on a story that was not only visu­ally stun­ning but also kept to our trade­mark of be­ing a dark and beau­ti­ful thriller,” shares Chua. “Pizza isn’t just a story that we wanted to tell, it serves a greater pur­pose in the short film genre. It is a cau­tion­ary tale with a very im­por­tant mes­sage.” Dr. Ger­hard Pils, CEO of BMW Group Malaysia be­lieves the film­maker has most cer­tainly es­tab­lished him­self as a mas­ter of the thriller genre. “We look for­ward to see­ing him con­tinue to de­velop his ca­reer as a pro­fes­sional film­maker, and are proud to have en­joyed the op­por­tu­nity to launch his suc­cess­ful ca­reer through the BMW Short­ies pro­gram,” says Pils. BMW Short­ies 2013 is now open for en­tries. Send in your en­tries by Oc­to­ber 31. www.bmw­short­ies.com.my
