Gone Hollywood

Brian sat slouched back in a loveseat with two girls left and right. He toked a cigar. A magenta neon light cast over him. Slow soul music playing in the background as he enjoyed a midnight pole dancing show at 4 AM in the morning from a beautiful Mongolian girl. An expensive Bourbon sat on the glass saloon table up ahead.

He was the only soul left in the club. The wrap party had been going on until the early morning. They rented off the whole place. Last afternoon Brian Fong and his management had completed their most recent film: “The Artist and the City”. Fictional aspiring director Lo Ta Lim is followed making his magnum opus of the same name cast against the romantic backdrop of ‘80s Hong Kong. The script, written by Brian, is loosely based on his own life.

Brian got up. He finished his glass of Bourbon which was just enough to stabilize his alcohol level. He was not drunk nor sober. Brian was wide awake when he left the club. He left his car parked at the club and wandered along the boardwalk watching the sunrise until past 5 AM in the morning.

Turns out Brian’s daughter was married to the son of some high-ranking Dragon within Wo On Lok. The only thing that was clearly related to his moment of fame.

The next morning, the front page of the papers all had a grotesque photo of him on the ground near the boardwalk. Brain didn’t come home that night. Shot in cold blood by a bunch of triad contract killers. Brian’s artistic career became Macau Ronnie’s message to the upper echelons of Wo On Lok.

Super Wok Explosion is a unique animated web-series about Chinese organized crime. The project is funded entirely by its audience. On this website, animator Tony Cheuk likes to share information about Asian organized crime—and world-building of the universe of the series, Chinese tongs and triads.
