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.
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.
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.
Gee (formerly known as Gary) now known as SANLITUN. We’ve finally decided on a name for our movie and are happy with the name SANLITUN. Sanlitun is the main expat area of Beijing, but at the same time this area remains quite Chinese and could be called the only melting pot in the city, where both cultures blend into one. So, it’s apt for our film.
We’ve gathered together a crew that is perhaps not high on experience but they are certainly high on enthusiasm and that’s what counts … with these people on board I’m sure we’ll have a great adventure in making SANLITUN a reality.
