The Ching Siu Tung directed THE SORCERER AND THE WHITE SNAKE (BAK SEH CHUEN SHUET) will open on September 29th in Hong Kong and the Mainland for the National Day slot. Eva Huang Shengyi and Charlene Choi Cheuk Yin in the film played White Snake and Green Snake. As Green Snake, Ah Sa would display Green Snake's lively side. In the film she even played matchmaker to Huang Shengyi and Raymond Lam Fung. The film added many computer generated special effects. In THE SORCERER AND THE WHITE SNAKE a human shape that was covered in snake scales from shoulder to waist and below waist was all snake. In order to realistically display such human snake hybrid, Huang Shengyi and Ah Sa were wrapped in blue cloth from their chest down and relied on post production on the special effect created snake scales. Their figures left nothing to the imagination. To create White Snake and Green Snake's "snake skin", Huang Shengyi and Ah Sa also needed to be completely naked in the resin mold. To Huang Shengyi and Ah Sa, the film THE SORCERER AND THE WHITE SNAKE made them give the biggest leeway in their careers.
Huang Shengyi said the molding process was a little hot. At first she was not used to it. Luckily her skin did not have any reaction. She said that this special effect scene was already much more comfortable than fighting Jet Li (Lee Nin Kit)'s Fahai and being hung up high for a sword fight. She said that after days of fighting, the molding was like rest for her. Speaking of working with Ah Sa, Huang Shengyi said that she was a very cute little sister. This half human, half snake look once gave Director Ching Siu Tung quite a headache as he repeatedly asked the Korean company to make adjustments to achieve Green and White Snake's half human, half snake image. In addition, the film also had other demons, like Miriam Yeung Chin Wa's rabbit demon, Jiang Wu's turtle demon, Chapman To Man Jat's toad demon, Lam Suet's rooster demon and a particularly cute mouse. They were all friends of White Snake and Green Snake.
