We’re in the final stages of editing, the first rough cut is done. We finally shot our “long awaited” Tianjin scene yesterday, a scene that takes the film briefly outside of Beijing to the city of Tianjin, we’ve been delaying that shoot for reasons of laziness, I guess. Today is our final day of pick up shoots, a couple of scenes that will be shot and inserted in to the movie starting with a sunrise scene at 6.30am. When today is over we’ll have all the material to make that rough cut start to shape up to a final cut.
With Carlos having a difficult choice tonight in siding with national pride (England) or winning the sweeps and getting 200rmb (Italy).

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 🙂
