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.
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 🙂
