We’ve made a deal with some of the “dubious” DVD shops scattered around Beijing to stock our DVD of This Is Sanlitun. The DVD is available in Sanlitun and Shunyi. Although these shops (as with all DVD shops in Beijing) are operating in somewhat of a grey area, we have secured a good sales deal and to be quite honest these shops seem to be a bit more above board than our actual legal sales agents and distributors here in China. We have yet to see any figures, numbers or money from our iQiYi (Baidu) deal, yet our film has amassed over one million views through their online video platform. Here’s to the honest pirates!
The DVD of my movie This Is Sanlitun is out now and available in most Sanlitun district DVD shops in Beijing. It will also be available through our Facebook page.

A pair of hapless ex-pats discover that Beijing isn’t the hotbed of entrepreneurial opportunity they had anticipated in this hilarious and timely look at the West’s obsession with the East.
Our producer had a small preview screening for us last Saturday, most of the cast and crew showed up to watch 6 selected rough edited scenes from the movie. People enjoyed themselves and the screening party was a nice success.
Now to continue editing and post production which will hopefully result in a finished product sometime before November 2012.
The crew break into song during filming of our movie…
Although we’ve started the editing process we still had some “official” shooting to do, so the final scene was shot today and we celebrated by having a wrap party. Some street food at The Worker’s Stadium followed by free cocktails in a bar set up by our production manager Stacey and then some KTV fun (Karaoke) … oh and of course followed by The Final of The Euro’s 2012, sad to say that most of the crew supported Italy. It was a great Wrap and a great crew – Thanks to Jeremy (sound), Matthew (camera), Lemon (AD) for taking us out on a high note in the KTV by singing “My heart will go on” what else? 🙂
Suzanne is the winner of the Euro 2012 sweeps – and the rest of the crew owe her 20rmb each!
