        Mandarin Film worked together with Studio Lambert, an award-winning British TV production company, to produce an original travel documentary program, “Race Across the World”.

        華影青橙與英國獲獎無數的電視制作公司Studio Lambert聯合制作了原創旅行紀錄片節目Race Across The World。

        In this series, 6 teams of British contestants travel from London, through Europe, and into Asia, to race to their final destination, Singapore. Their journey shows thehistory, sights, local cuisine, and culture of each country they pass through along the way.

        
        在這個系列紀錄片中,六支英國隊伍將從倫敦穿過歐亞大陸前往最終目的地:新加坡。在他們的旅途過程中展示了各個國家的人文歷史、優美風景,以及當地文化和美食

        Mandarin Film took on producing the China segment of “Race Across the World”. We helped research potential interesting stories, and obtained location permits across Gansu, Shan’Xi, Sichuan, and Guangxi Provinces. 

        華影青橙承擔了這部紀錄片在中國部分的制片工作。我們幫助調研和搜羅潛在的有趣故事,以及獲得甘肅、陜西、四川和廣西各省的場地拍攝許可。

         

         

        Not your standard travel documentary, this British reality show is known for being “unscripted”. Producers cannot pre-plan routes or schedule shoots beforehand like on a usual travel program. Instead, the contestants were the “bosses”, where they wanted to go, the film crew followed.

        這並不是一般的普通旅行紀錄片,這檔英國真人秀節目的特點是“沒有劇情腳本”。制作者不能像平常的電視節目一樣預先計劃所有路線和日程安排,參賽者才是這個計劃的“掌控者”,拍攝隊員也由他們掌握。

         

        The uncertainty of at what time and by what route the contestants would arrive posed the biggest challenge to our producers. We had to be prepared for every possible path and be flexible with last minute changes. Acting on the contestants’ decisions, we needed to make logistical arrangements and contact locations quickly to keep the filming running smoothly.

        
        再者,參賽者非固定性的參賽路線以及不確定性的到達時間都對我們的制片工作構成了巨大的挑戰。我們必須充分做好每一條參賽者可能走的路線的準備工作,並靈活地做出最佳決定好隨時應變一切。我們也會根據參賽者的決定,緊急安排后勤工作和迅速聯系地點來保證拍攝的順利。
        
        After 8 exciting days, contestant Joshua Nawras declared, “China is the best country we’ve been to so far!”

        約書亞·瑙拉斯作為一名黃瑤古鎮的參賽者,在中國經歷了8天激動人心的歷險之后,他感嘆:中國是迄今為止我們到過最棒的國家!

        “Race Across the World” is currently airing on BBC 2Click here to watch the show!《Race Across The World》現在已經在英國廣播公司(BBC)的第二頻道播出。點擊這里觀看節目!

        Mandarin Film has developed a new TV and interactive web series following travel adventurer Ash Dykes on his mission to be the first person to walk the entire length of the Yangtze River.  The show is provisionally entitled Walking the Yangtze: Into the Heart of China.

        華影青橙正在策劃一個新的電視和互動網絡系列片,該片將跟隨第一位徒步穿越整條長江的旅行探險家Ash Dykes。節目暫命名為《徒步長江:走進中國腹地》

        In this incredible new series, British adventurer Ash Dykes takes us on his most ambitious record- attempt yet: the Yangtze, which is the longest river in Asia and spans across 6,380km long. 

        在這部全新的非同凡響的系列片里,英國探險家Ash Dykes將帶領我們領略他最具野心的創紀錄探索:亞洲最長的河流----長江,全長6380千米。

        Starting with the freezing temperatures in the west to a tropical environment in the east, Ash’s survival skills as well as his curiosity for new cultures and adventures will make this an unforgettable epic adventure and a world record. 

        從中國寒冷的西部到炎熱的東部,既有生存技能,又有對不同文化好奇心,還有冒險精神的Ash,除了將帶來一部令人難忘的史詩級作品外,還將打破一個世界紀錄。

        Ash has now officially made it to the source of the Yangtze river on his second attempt and is beginning his world-first, 4,000 mile #MissionYangtze expedition. He's returned with a stronger support crew and his trusty(?) horse, Caster Troy, ready to take on the first and most dangerous 200 miles of terrain as they head towards mountain village Qumarleb over the next 2-3 weeks.

        如今,Ash已經第二次到達長江的源頭,開始了這個世界第一的長達4000英里的遠征。當他回來的時候帶著更強大的支持團隊以及一匹名叫卡斯特洛伊的馬。在接下來的2-3周里,這匹馬會第一次帶他朝著山中村落曲麻萊走去。那將是一條長達2000英里的路途,地形極度復雜,充滿危險。

        The ‘Traditional Source’ was one start point considered to begin the journey, however Ash chose to begin at the harder-to-reach ‘Scientific Source’, ensuring that #MissionYangtze started at the official, scientifically recognised source of the Yangtze river for this world-first adventure, as mapped by the China Exploration and Research Society.

        雖然長江的“傳統源頭”也可以做為開始旅程的起點,但Ash選擇了從更難到達的“科學認定的源頭”作為旅程的起點。他認為這樣才能確保這個中國探險學會標記過,中國官方認證的源頭才是自己探險的起點。

        Click here to see estimated timelines for when Ash is expecting to pass through the different stages of the journey and follow him in real time on the Live Tracker to see if he is on target to meet his time goals.

        點擊鏈接 來查看Ash整個旅途的時間軸,上面會顯示不同的階段他會途徑哪些不同的地方。也可以在Live Tracker上實時地追隨他的行程,也可以看他是否完成了時間軸預設的目標。

        Mandarin Film is partnering with global distributor Bomanbridge and web and TV partners in China and internationally to produce the TV and web series that has already begun production and will be delivered in late 2019.

        華影青橙將聯合國際發行公司Bomanbridge以及中國和全球的網絡和電視合作方來呈現這部電視和網絡系列片。該片已經開始了制作,并計劃于2019年底完片。

        The Grand Tour is a British motoring television series for Amazon Video, presented by Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond, and James May.

        《大世界之旅》是一檔汽車類電視節目,由亞馬遜視頻投資, 由杰瑞米·克拉克森、理查德·哈蒙德和詹姆斯·梅主持。

        The show was Amazon Video’s most watched premiere episode, and although no viewing figures are available is generally regarded as one of the most watched TV shows in the world, even surpassing Game of Thrones in terms of ‘most illegally downloaded show’!

         這是亞馬遜視頻首播節目中的收視最高的節目,雖然并沒有具體的數據,但是《大世界之旅》是世界范圍內收視最高的節目之一,在“非法下載最多的節目”評選中,《大世界之旅》的熱度甚至超過了《權力的游戲》!

        Mandarin Film worked with UK-based production company Chump Productions to create and shoot an episode on China for the third season of the series.  A Mandarin Film team of producers helped source stories and characters and then worked on the laborious task of getting China-wide permissions for importing cars, obtaining driving licenses and getting permits for a crew of more than 80, with over fifteen vehicles for a two week shoot.  

        華影青橙與英國的制作公司Chump Productions共同制作了節目第三季的中國特集。華影青橙的制片團隊在中國尋找故事和人物角色,為期兩周的拍攝面臨艱巨的挑戰,包括申請全國范圍內的汽車進口許可,獲得駕駛許可證,為由80個人、15輛汽車組成的攝制團隊獲得拍攝許可。

        The shoot took place in several provinces in South China, and included scenes of the presenters exploring China, driving some amazing roads and performing dare-devil stunts.  One of the many challenges of the shoot was to get temporary driving licenses for the cast and crew. Something that had never been permitted before. Mandarin Film also managed to gain support from different local government bodies allowing the crew to film on the jaw-dropping highway and bridge constructions in the stunning southern mountain areas. The shoot was a huge success and will be aired in early 2019.

        這次拍攝在中國南部的幾個省份進行,包括主持人探索中國的故事。主持人在風光旖旎的公路上馳騁,并挑戰高難度的特技表演。其中一項艱巨的任務是為節目的工作人員和演員們獲取臨時駕駛許可證。經過華影青橙團隊的努力,拍攝獲得了多個地方政府部門的支持,順利拍攝了中國南部高山地區公路、橋梁的建設工程,場面令人驚訝不已。拍攝獲得了巨大的成功,節目將于2019年年初播映。

        In winter, swifts hibernate all the way to Africa. And in Spring, they fly all the way back to Beijing and to this exact building where they had built their nest before. This means flying over 30,000 kilometers a year. No matter how harsh the journey, nothing can waver their will of coming back home. ” said Professor Gao Wu while holding a baby swift tenderly in his hand, during his recent swift ringing event once a year at the Summer Palace. Wild Metropolis covered this year’s swift ringing event, as part of the Beijing Swift story. 

        “冬天,雨燕會遷徙到非洲過冬。到了春天,它們又會飛回北京重新建筑舊巢。這意味著它們每年需要飛行30,000公里。無論旅途多么艱辛,也動搖不了它們回家的決心。”高武教授在一年一度的頤和園雨燕“體檢”活動中,一邊溫柔地捧著一只小雨燕一邊說道。《都會中的動物市民》將記錄這意義非凡的雨燕活動,作為北京雨燕故事中的一部分。

        Wild Metropolisis a new landmark three part wildlife series made for the BBC with co-producers Tencent (China) and PBS (US). Mandarin Filmhelped with all aspects of the production to film the Beijing Swifts, at various swift habitats around the city. 

        《都會中的動物市民》是英國廣播公司BBC制作的一部野生動物系列三部曲,本片的聯合制片方有騰訊(中國)和美國公共電視臺PBS. 華影青橙在城市中各處雨燕棲息地協助制作拍攝北京雨燕的方方面面。

        The series will reveal the world’s most extraordinary wildlife living in the newest and fastest changing habitat on the planet – human cities. Filmed across the world, the series aims to experience the most-loved and familiar cities through fresh eyes… the eyes of the animals that live in them. The story filmed in Beijing focuses on the Beijing Swift, which has been associated with the city for hundreds of years, nesting in some of the city’s most spectacular locations – including the Summer Palace and Zhengyang Gate at Tiananmen Square.

        本系列紀錄片將展示世界上的野生動物們在日新月異的人類城市當中的非凡生活。影片在世界各地拍攝,我們將通過生活在其中的動物們的眼睛,以嶄新的視角感受我們最愛和熟悉的城市。北京片段將聚焦在北京雨燕——數百年來它們與北京城建立了緊密的聯系,它們會在北京城中最有特色的景點(包括北京頤和園和天安門廣場的正陽門)筑巢。

        Key challenges for the production were obtaining the permissions to access some of the most closely guarded national cultural relics like Tiananmen Square and the Summer Palace, and moreover, to film wildlife’s living habitat in a busy city like Beijing. 

        此次制作主要的挑戰是獲得進入像天安門廣場和頤和園這樣保衛森嚴的國家文物遺址的許可。并要在像北京這種繁忙的城市中拍攝野生動物棲息地。

        As a city resident, we rarely look into the sky of Beijing or ancient architecture, and pay attention to observe the birds this long. The Beijing Swift fly extremely fast and in various patterns. Unlike filming in the wild, to film animals in the city we need take people and traffic into consideration. The nests are often high and inaccessible.  With a bit of problem-solving, coordination with key locations and NGOs and a lot of patience, we managed to get some amazing shots which perfectly embody the co-existence of human and animal. I can’t wait to see the final film!” Shan-Shan Wang, – Mandarin Film Producer.

        “作城市居民,我很少深入研究北京的天空和古建筑,并注意鳥類這么久。北京雨燕行速度極快并且形各異。和拍野生物不同,拍城市中的需要考到人和交通的因素。巢通常很高且以接近。通解決問題,與關地點和非政府組織進協調以及憑借極大的毅力,我成功的拍到了一些完美體人與物共存的精彩鏡頭。我已經等不及想看到成片了!”華影青橙制片人——王怡珊說道

        “ I just wanted to say thanks again for all your hard work during our shoot in Beijing – everything went so smoothly and I know was down to your hard work behind the scenes. ”– Director/Researcher, BBC Wild Metropolis. 

        “我只是想再次感你在北京拍中的努力工作。一切都非常利,我知道這歸功于你在幕后的辛勤工作。”——BBC《都會中的物市民》導演/調研者

        Working closely with CARFTE (The Chinese Association for Radio, Film and Television Exchange), Mandarin Filmwas able to obtain permissions for all of the filming sites and appropriate visas for the foreign crew. 

        我公司與中華廣播電視交流協會緊密合作,華影青橙能為外國攝制組獲得所有拍攝場地許可和適當的簽證。

        Wild Metropolisis now in post-production stage, and will be released in 2019 on  BBC, Tencent and PBS. 

        《都會中的動物市民》正處于后期制作階段,將于2019年在BBC,騰訊和PBS播出。

        Food Unwrapped is a long-running popular Channel 4 TV show that travels the world exploring the industry secrets behind our favourite foods.

        From tins of bamboo shoots and cloves of garlic to noodles and tea, in this food unwrapped China special Ricochet wanted to explore the origins of China’s  amazing foods.

        Food safety can be a sensitive subject in China so we had to navigate those sensitivities whilst dealing with complicated visas and permitting, always with an eye on researching great stories that would chime with a UK audience.  Without giving too much away we found some incredibly entertaining and yet informative stories across China, filming simultaneously with two separate crews in 8 different cities across Beijing, Sichuan, Yunnan, Jiangxi, and Jiangsu Provinces over 10 days.

        Highlights of the shoot included capturing Matt Tebutt opening a freshly fished clam to discover dozens of pearls inside. Other great moments were host Jimmy Doherty making traditional soy sauce at a picturesque riverside with 3000 pots of fermenting soy beans and later foraging bamboo shoots on the film set of Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon.

        Mandarin Film provided full production services from research, location scouting, logistics and official permissions, to crew, equipment and production staff on the shoots.

        “Thank you Yuyu and team for looking after everyone so well, especially in some challenging situations!” Hannah Lamb, Ricochet

        “When I first arrived in China it was a bit of a culture shock, the hustle and bustle, the food, the driving, the no holding doors! But after a day or so I got into it and within not long loved it. That’s largely down to Yuyu not only being an ace location producer but also such a great on and off camera translator and guide. Made the whole experience really smooth and efficient. From sourcing new crew at very short notice and going the extra mile to make sure we got the shots we needed and seeing all the interesting sights we could in our limited time.” Joss Cubitt, Ricochet

        “For thousands of years, Chinese dragons have been symbols of power and auspiciousness. This is what marks them apart from dragons in the West.” In a quiet exhibit room of National Museum of China, world famous art director John Howe stands in front of the six thousand year old Dragon and Tiger tomb. He talks animatedly with Chinese experts about the dragon culture which he sees it as his one true passion in life.

        Mandarin Film collaborated with Cerigo Films on their new landmark documentary “Dragon!”, a 4 episodes series commissioned by ARTE featuring John Howe, who was the concept artist for the movie trilogies “Lord of the Rings” and “The Hobbit”.

        In this series, John Howe takes his sketch book to in a journey across space and time to get to the heart of dragon legends and myths around the world. This time, he set foot on an ancient soil, China, to discover hidden secrets among the descendants of the dragon.

        John Howe has a keen interest in and deep relations with Chinese culture. He first came to China over twenty years ago and has developed life-long friendships with a range of the most well known Chinese artists. No wonder he’s adored by a huge Chinese fan-base. He’s treated like a superstar wherever we go. Shan-Shan Wang, – Mandarin Film Producer.

        Key challenges for the production were obtaining the permissions to access some of the most closely guarded national cultural relics at the Great Wall and China’s National Museum. Working closely with CARFTE (The Chinese Association for Radio, Film and Television Exchange), Mandarin Film was able to obtain permissions for all of the filming sites and appropriate visas for the foreign crew.

        Cerigo Films is a respected production company with more than 10 years of experience making high-quality television series as well as fictions such as, “The Lord of the Castle”(commissioned by ARTE, France 3 Alsace), “Looking for the Hobbit”(commissioned by ARTE), “Paroles de Vitrail”(France Televisions)

        "Dragon!" documentary series is now in post-production stage, and aims to be released winter 2018 on ARTE TV. Created by Yannis Metzinger and Alexis Metzinger. Directed by Ru?diger Mörsdorf, featuering John Howe and presented by Nicolas Mezzalira.

        In early 2018 US news site Upworthy,  “covering current events in a way that elevates the shared conversation and ourselves.” Commissioned Mandarin Film to produce a short video as part of a global series about long term change-makers, entitled ‘the Long Game’. 

        The Nature Conservancy has been involved in environmental protection all over the world for seventy years now, and in China for almost thirty. 

        The Nature Conservancy is enhancing the quality of life in China by using science supported by international and local expertise to ensure that China can solve its most pressing environmental challenges—like the threats linked with rapid urbanization and climate change.’

        The concept behind the series is that change doesn’t happen overnight, real change only occurs with many years, decades even, of solid application.  With more than a decade of producing experience in China, Mandarin Film couldn’t agree more!

        We arranged to go to Heqing, Yunnan Province in China’s far South-West corner, to film TNC’s work around Plateau Wetland and Bird Habitat Conservation.  We were blown away by what we witnessed.  Amongst the rapid development of the area what we found was a quiet, clean haven for birds of every stripe, and a paradise for bird watchers and nature-lovers.

        Looking deeper we discovered a great example of how NGOs can collaborate with government and the community to effect change and make everyone’s lives better – people and wildlife too, and hopefully create a better future for our kids and their kids.  The Long Game indeed!

        During our two day shoot we filmed a number of incredible sequences, kids in the local middle school getting a lesson in what part they could play; a temple right on the wetland where the abbot is working with TNC to make sure that when pilgrims release fish in the lake (to gain good karma) it’s a non-invasive species that they release.  Finally we were blown away by the sheer number and diversity of the birds we filmed.  [Ruddy Shelduck,Purple Swamphen,Common Coot,Greylag Goose,Common Merganser,Great Egret,Northern Pintail,Northern Shoveler]

        Filming using the latest DJI drone ‘Inspire 2’, Amira with long lens monoscope for close up wildlife shots, and Sony A7s with Gimbal, we hope you will agree we were able to capture everything from breathtaking aerials to close ups of rare bird species, from the clear limpid depths of the wetland to the colorful local people that have worked alongside and in harmony with nature for thousands of years.

        A rare ray of sunlight in an often unremittingly dark news cycle, Mandarin Film is proud to have played its part in bringing TNC’s work in the wetlands to a wider audience.

        You can find out more and donate to the TNC here 

        Mandarin Film has long been a supporter and passionate advocate for environmental causes, producing everything from a Oscar nominated ‘Before the Flood’ with Leonardo Dicaprio, ground-breaking documentary ‘Green China Rising’ for National Geographic in 2011, to short ‘micro films’ for a Chinese audience like ‘Thirsty Earth’.

        Mandarin Film recently launched a new initiative called ‘Fresh Start’ whereby it donates its time and resources to help NGO’s and charities hone and market their vision using the power of the video.  We do this work completely for free.  If you know of a worthy beneficiary of this, let us know at info [at] mandarinfilm.com

        Mandarin Film collaborated with Icon Films to produce the Chinese episode of their new show “Mighty Rivers”, a 6-part series commissioned by Animal Planet US/Discovery Channel and distributed by ITV G about the world’s  six greatest rivers, featuring angling superstar Jeremy Wade.

        The world’s freshwater monsters are vanishing – and for biologist Jeremy Wade, that’s a wake-up call: a sign that our rivers are in trouble. Polluted, controlled, and over-exploited, even the mightiest are said to be dying. But are things really that bad, or that simple?

        In Mighty Rivers, Jeremy sets out to take the pulse of six of the planet’s biggest waterways. With the same immersive style that’s made him a global TV star, Jeremy investigates the Amazon, the Ganges, the Yangtze, the Mississippi, the Danube, and the Zambezi. Are these huge rivers really sick beyond the point of hope? Or have reports of their death been greatly exaggerated? Which if any of them can be revived?

        From insane mega-cities to remote plains, audiences travel with Jeremy as he mixes with the people who live along these rivers, tests their waters, and tries to make sense of what’s happening. After years of solving freshwater mysteries, this is more than just another adventure. In Jeremy’s own words, it’s the most important mission of his life.”

        Icon Films is a respected production company with twenty years of experience making high-quality television programming across many factual genres – ‘River Monsters’, ‘Primal Survivor’ and ‘Savage Kingdom’ are global hit shows.  Their best-known work is River Monsters, the most popular series on Animal Planet for the past nine years.

        After six months of pre-production, Mighty Rivers brought the Icon crew to China in summer 2017, for many of them it was their very best time to China. Together, our journey started in the teeming metropolis of Shanghai and ended in the quiet beauty of the high plateaus of the Tibetan plateau.

        I was amazed that Jeremy even studied Mandarin prior to coming and learned quite quickly to become a wandering local in such a short period! Jeremy spoke with people from all walks of life in the hope to learn more about China’s ‘mother river’ and all those that rely on her for their livelihood, passion and traditions. “ YuJia – Mandarin Film Producer

        Mandarin Film was the local partner that oversaw the whole spectrum of activities – from research, character casting, story development, film permit, location management. The shoot  involved a three-week recce months prior to the shoot.

        The most challenging part was obtaining the permissions to access some of the science institutes and nature reserves, but it was worth it for the highlights:

        - Filming Jeremy riding a bicycle along the top of the Three Gorges Dam while riding a bicycle

        - Taking a speedboat in the midst of a downpour and seeing finless porpoises making their way up the river

        - Standing atop 4,500m high peaks in the Tibetan Plateau and filming the stunning aerials Jeremy needs to tell his story of the source of the Yangtze water

        - Attending the biggest fish-release event in Shanghai, arranged by Buddhists who volunteer to come together and released over 6,800 kilograms of carp fish to save them from the slaughter (thereby gaining karma for themselves). 

        Working closely with CITVC (China International Television Corporation), Mandarin Film obtained permissions for all of the filming sites and appropriate visas for the foreign crew.

        Simply put, it was 21 days across 10 cities and many unforgettable memories shared.

        Mandarin Film continues to work with Icon on new ideas for filming unforgettable shows in China.

        It’s that time of the year again when the firecrackers chase the ghosts of years past away and the year of the dog is ushered in. 

        If you had a ruff one last year don’t worry – this year is going to be absolutely pawsome!

        Our new year tradition has come around too – sending the most unusual, beautiful and diverse locations from around China we have had the pleasure of working on over the last year.  Enjoy!

         

        10. Electric racing in Hong Kong

        Formula E is one of the world’s fastest growing sports and the track in Central and Wanchai along the waterfront in Hong Kong couldn’t be more stunning.  This project is hush hush, but look out for an amazing new feature doc on this subject coming up later this year!

        9. Blue Map Apping

        OK – we haven’t highlighted one location here – its more like 8000 surface water quality monitoring stations and over 9000 key air emissions and wastewater pollution sources across China!

        The Crowd & The Cloud is an exciting new four part series for PBS exploring the new frontier of citizen science in the age of mobile technology.   

        Mandarin Film helped feature one such solution: the Blue Map App, which was created by the IPE, enabling the public to check up on air and water quality, local sources of pollution, and keep record of emissions from 9,000 polluting companies.

        See the trailer here

        8. Mandarin Film’s new office in Shanghai!

        Our office might not be one of the world’s most amazing filming locations but Shanghai is – and it DOES mean we are spreading our wings further and will be able to service our clients all the better from multiple offices around China!

        7. Terracotta Soldiers Photogrammetry and Great Wall Tobogganing

        China’s first international Virtual Reality (VR) travel series was created when Mandarin Film partnered with Discovery US and luxury travel operator Abercrombie & Kent.

        In just ten days, the crew travelled across the major cities and landmarks of China: Beijing, Shanghai, Xi’an, Chongqing, Chengdu, and cruised along the Yangtze River to bring China’s highlights to the world’s eye using VR.

        One of the highlights was getting exclusive access into Beijing’s most sacred temple Temple of Heaven and one of the world’s most visited tourist sites XiAn’s Terra Cotta Warriors with nobody else inside, which gave them a great chance to capture a moment of zen.  The Terracotta Warriors were shot using a cutting edge technique known as photogrammetry - taking photos from all angles then stitching and mapping them in post-production to crate an incredibly detailed 360-degree world. 

        Other techniques were designed to give VR users insane birds-eye or action adventure views: whether be using camera to follow a kite-flyer on the busy Bund of Shanghai or sliding down the Great Wall toboggan, the journey was definitely one filled with all the great surprises and wonders of modern China.

        6. Avian Superhighway

        US news site Upworthy,“covering current events in a way that elevates the shared conversation and ourselves.” commissioned Mandarin Film to produce a short video as part of a global series about long term change-makers, entitled ‘the Long Game’. 

        The Nature Conservancy has been involved in environmental protection all over the world for seventy years now, and in China for almost thirty. 

        We arranged to go to Heqing, Yunnan Province in China’s far South-West corner, to film TNC’s work around Plateau Wetland and Bird Habitat Conservation.  We were blown away by what we witnessed.  Amidst the rapid modernization of this area we discovered a quiet, clean haven for birds of every stripe, and a paradise for bird watchers and nature-lovers.

        5. Dam Biking

        Mandarin Film helped Icon Films produce the Chinese episode of the new show “Monster Rivers”, an 6-part series commissioned by Animal Planet US/Discovery Channel about the world’s six greatest rivers, featuring angling superstar Jeremy Wade and his journey down these rivers to learn about the diverse cultures.

        The film isn’t out yet, but look out for riding a bike along the Three Gorges Dam, finless porpoises and the biggest fish-release event in the metropolitan of Shanghai, arranged by Buddhists who volunteer to come together and released over 6,800 kilograms of carp fish to save them from slaughter. 

        4. Cleaning Beijing’s Waters

        Mandarin Film has long been a supporter and passionate advocate for environmental causes, producing everything from a Oscar nominated ‘Before the Flood’ with Leonardo Dicaprio, ground-breaking documentary ‘Green China Rising’ for National Geographic in 2011, to short ‘micro films’ for a Chinese audience like ‘Thirsty Earth’.

        Mandarin Film recently launched a new initiative called ‘Fresh Start’ whereby it donates its time and resources to help NGO’s and charities hone and market their vision using the power of the video.  We do this work completely for free.  If you know of a worthy beneficiary of this, let us know at info [at] mandarinfilm.com

        3. Crash Zooms and Wall Raves

        Mandarin Film was the local production partner for the China part of the Channel 4 and TNT drama series, shooting in multiple locations across China.  

        “For me the defining shot of the show is, one of the opening shots of the show, a big wide shot of a massive intersection in the middle of Beijing where we crash zoom into Dylan and Sean standing with a guide book and Sean’s comment that’s basically ‘Is there a beach nearby?’ In some ways this summarises the show, it’s about people who are out of their depth trying to make sense of their environment, and us watching them and having fun, whilst we see them navigate that world. 

        We couldn’t be more delighted with what we shot in China…When we filmed live at the music festival at the Great Wall, it felt like we’re doing something quite innovative in some ways and when we were filming on the subways and at the train station in Beijing.” Jamie Campbell, Executive Producer, Eleven Films

        We believe this is the first foreign drama to be shot entirely on location in China (other than just small scenes) – and we are proud to have been a part in it.

        2. One Amazing Day

         “From BBC Earth Films, the studio that brought you Earth, comes the long-awaited sequel – Earth: One Amazing Day, an astonishing journey revealing the awesome power of the natural world, narrated by the Oscar-winning American movie icon, Robert Redford.”

        This is a landmark film in many ways.  A true China-UK collaboration that will be of key interest to the wider industry as it is the first film to be produced under the new UK-China film treaty, signed by President Xi Jinping and then Prime Minister David Cameron in 2014.

        A co-production between BBC Earth Films and China’s Shanghai Media Group, Mandarin film played a key role not only in helping facilitate the film within the terms of the treaty, but also by shooting key elements in China, and, perhaps most importantly, helping ensure that the Chinese version was every bit as good as the international one.

        On the production side, we filmed Pandas, Cranes and Langur Monkeys using gimbal and drone rigs specifically designed for each shoot.  A highlight for us was drone shooting with the cliff-dwelling monkeys of Guangxi.

        1. Ski The World

        We’ve never been involved in anything quite like this - champion skier Candide Thovex skis in some of the world’s most iconic locations on brick, sand, mud, grass and water - anything but snow!

        Mandarin Film provided production support in terms of research and location scouting as well as securing locations, equipment and fixing for the China sections: at the (fake) Great Wall and the incredible Huo Lingol statues in Inner Mongolia.

        Hope you enjoyed them! Wishing you no dog days but a great year of the dog!
