The inspiring teenpic "Air Dairy", which premiered on Sunday, boasts two dazzling titles: the virgin silver screen show of the 2006 Super Girl singer Xu Fei, and the first production of Jackie Chan's filming plan named "Chinese New Movie Supporting Scheme".

In the semi-autobiographical movie, Xu Fei, who's now a senior music major at university, plays a college music graduate and pub singer. After her band is signed with a record company, she finds it hard to live in the showbiz industry, and chooses to leave the world of music. But she is finally led back again by her pals.

Actor Huang Jue co-stars in the movie and "Crazy Stone" star Huang Bo guest-stars in several impressive comical scenes, as a vagrant musician.

As the producer of the film, Jackie Chan attended the premiere, promoting his "Chinese New Movie Supporting Scheme".

"I hewed out my career by playing real Kung Fu for more than 20 years. However, with the development of high tech, everyone can be made into a super man nowadays. The most striking Chinese films may be surpassed by others in a short time," Chan said.

"Thus, I hope this scheme can help to scout the most talented new directors and actors. I can find investments. They just need to hand in a good production."

Chan also confessed he hadn't been so helpful to new people in the past. "When I was young, I actively supported only actresses, because they posed no threat to me."

The movie will roll out in Chinese theatres in September 6.
