10 Movie Stills from "GEE" (Working title)

Preliminary shooting is done and although there are a few pick up days ahead of us most of the shooting is in the can, so to speak. I’m currently syncing the sound files to the video files and have started a rough cut. We came up with a title the other day, based on the theme’s, location and well … weirdness of the movie so far.

how about Manhattan 2 : Beijing

How on earth we’ll convince the investors that this is a viable title, I don’t know 🙂

Crew Euro Sweeps Great Wall

We shot a great scene on The Great Wall today (obviously). Then the remaining crew did a Euro 2012 Football Championship sweep among themselves, here’s how the draw went:

The crew members team which ends the highest (wins the final) will result in that crew member being payed 20 rmb from each of the other crew members in the sweeps. The one who ends lowest will be fired.

The Strong Women Of Our Crew

before it all began

Some respect has to go out to our female staff who make up our whole production department and thus have to deal with some very strange, spur of the moment and rather unpredictable decisions made by the director and the two associate producers. They handle the job better than we could have hoped for, staying with us through everything and always dealing any kind of problems in a very professional way, which can perhaps not be said about the actual creative force behind the movie, The movie will be a masterpiece of absurd comedy because you allow us to be stupid boys on set.

Thanks 🙂
