What is the weather like in Hong Kong ?

Shooting outside can be challenging in Hong Kong for half of the year.
Weather in South Asia is warm and wet. Hong Kong offer rainy season, commonly called the plum rain,  starting Mid May to Mid June where frequent and sudden heavy rain can occur.
Cyclone are frequent and will forbid any filming. Offices are to be closed in such weather.

If the filming should happen during the hottest July and August months, it’s important to drink plenty of water and be careful when installing hot light under the sun.

Compare to other city; Hong Kong subway and offices have powerful air conditioning and it’s frequent to get cold there. A lot of cover overpass allows shadows and protection from the rain almost everywhere downtown Hong Kong Island.

The main and common issue is the polluted air coming from China that may block landscape. Plum season is actually the best to have clean atmosphere and amazing cloud pattern.

The best months to be outside are from mid October to mid April, the coldest temperature is about 15 degrees Celsius.

What movies have you been working on?

As we settle in Asia in 2003, we have been working on an extremely wide array of projects:
Storytelling, Cinematic
Our videographer in Hong Kong have been working on :

  • Beautiful cinematic wedding films, including pre-wedding presentation introducing the groom and bride. These little creative piece of art includes storytelling and filming weeks prior to the event.
    All gathered in a nice animated movie inter-cut by friends interviews.
  • Fashion show coverage, for TV purpose or directly for the brand. This goes from time-lapse of the stage getting built to BTS report, backstage make up and dressing to VIP interview, and the show itself. Getting hired by Fashion TV is one great achievement.
  • Kick starter video presentation; from interviewing the designer team to the local tiny factory producing the electronic board in Shenzhen.
  • Political meeting and conventions report; from the early event start breakfast, the stage speaker to the event kick off;we got it all under control for you.
  • TV Documentary in raw nature under tough conditions. Our videographer have been going from the border of Tibet at high altitude, shooting the very warm Gobi desert and now filming under Typhoon conditions in Hong Kong. I guess it draws a clear picture on our commitment to make your project happens whatever the challenges.
  • Event and product launch. With covering the Shanghai world expo 2010 opening ceremony as reference; we showcase your work and convey your brand message. We also been doing fair and trade show movie to present large exhibit as the world largest Auto Show in Beijing.

Do you speak Chinese in Hong Kong?

Hong Kong have two official written/spoken languages; English and Cantonese.
Even if most of Hong Kong residents are fluent in both; there is a misunderstanding on the exact signification of the meaning of ‘Chinese’.

Crossing the border and going to China, the situation is quite different.

In Guangdong area, Cantonese is also widely spoken, but the official language is Mandarin only. There is a very limited amount of people speaking English.

Hong Kongers are referring ‘Chinese’ to describe Cantonese language when mainlanders meaning is ‘Mandarin’.

As more mainlanders are settling in Hong Kong; it’s very important to know which language our videographer should speak if he need critical attention on the interview content.
Mandarin and Cantonese are completely different languages. Both pronunciation and written are different and incompatible.

If our videographer should bring a prompter, it’s easy to understand how important this detail is!

Our crew is usually, at least, bi-langual including English. If you like to hire us, please describe on your filming project sum up, the expected crew language if different from English.
