I was curious about checking it out some day.
Does anybody in this forum have shooting experience in China ?
would you guys share it with me ?
I have a Villa in the Philippines I've rented to US based indie filmmakers. It's better than China because the locals all speak English and the culture is Western based. Roger Corman made a lot of his movies in the Philippines, FFC did Apocalypse there too. A grip will cost you about $20/day, operator about $40/day, sound engineer about $35/day. Food, and everything else is dirt cheap. There are good rental houses too. Everything is cheap there.
