Jet Tone Archive

The making of every film is fueled by time and dedication. The light is always spotted in front of the camera, but filmmaking is made up of many stages of labor, and the conclusion of each stage is always greeted with scenes of chaos: a deserted location after a day of shooting, a dismantled set after months of construction and reconstruction, carefully crafted costumes bundled and piled up in abandoned dressing rooms, pages of screenplay drafted over sleepless nights scattered and dissolved on the ground, an empty theater hall after a packed premiere, and worn film prints and posters left to soak under the rain in the back alleys of movie theaters…

Since the establishment of Jet Tone Films, I have always collected what I could and should from every production. I have tried my best to find a home for this collection of words, sounds and music, costumes, props and even merchandise. In the end, my productions only served as a temporary home for these items. My wife, Esther, is someone that cherishes memories. I thank her and the team at Jet Tone Archive for years of dedication in providing these items with a fitting and lasting home.

The purpose of this archive is to preserve memorable pieces of our works in their best condition before they are ready to be shared by others. 30 years ago, Jet Tone Archive was born together with Jet Tone Films. To mark this occasion, we have selected 30 representative collectibles for this auction. Our wish is that others can keep this light burning. For that, we are grateful for the dedicated support from Sotheby’s Hong Kong.

澤東庫藏

一部電影的誕生,燃燒的是人的青春和心血。最風光之處,永遠是攝影機前、燈光之下。結束之後,往往是兵荒馬亂。拍攝後的片場、演員離組後的服裝間、首映結束後的戲院、用錢堆起來的佈景一片片被卸下、一針一線繡出來的華衣美服被捲作一團、嘔心瀝血寫就的劇本灑滿一地、拷貝、海報泡在水里。

從澤東成立以來,每一部電影,只要能力所及,我總會盡量留下可以收藏、值得收藏的東西。從文字到影像、聲音、服裝、道具,以至衍生物。我都希望為它們提供一個歸宿。在我手裡,這個歸宿只是一個小倉庫,像舊物回收站。我太太陳以靳是惜物之人,我要感謝她,以及整個庫藏團隊多年來的默默努力,將這個歸宿發展到今天的澤東庫藏。

所謂庫藏,重點在存,我們的責任是好好保存,最終這些心血都會回到社會。三十而立。今年澤東30歲,澤東庫藏跟它同年。為紀念這個日子,我們會從庫藏裡選出30件有代表性的藏品與大家分享。我們的景願是,有燈就有人。在此,再一次感謝香港蘇富比對我們這個想法的大力支持。
