Location Scouting

Location Scouting in China

Mandarin Film has shot and scouted all over China. From the grasslands of Inner Mongolia to the bustling streets of Shanghai, the lush forests of Yunnan to the harsh Taklamakan desert, we have the contacts and the local knowledge you need.


Not only do we know great locations, but we also know how to make a shoot happen there.  Mandarin Film has great contacts with various government organizations that can make the difference and smooth your path to the perfect location for your shoot.

We highly recommend a thorough recce, and our producer/researchers are well trained in spreading the net wide and then focusing in on the most promising places. Normally we like to take you or your team on the recce but if it’s not possible for you to be there we are also used to taking all the photos and video, and all the skype calls necessary for you to make an informed decision.

Please take a look at our locations page for some ideas on where to shoot your production, then give us a call or drop us a line and we'll be happy to talk it through with you further.  The first steps in finding the perfect locations for your shoot.
