Hire Director of Photography / Videographer / Cameraman, Xiamen
Hire our Director of Photography for your Videographer and Cameraman needs in Xiamen. We have been providing video service in China since we settle there in 2003.
On this project, Our prestigious IEEE client request interviews of many participants during their time off from convention conferences. It ended to be a 4 days shooting assignment in Xiamen for our cameraman. A great time there with very interesting subject covered.
Videotaping Xiamen city
Xiamen alternately known as Amoy is a sub-provincial city in southeastern Fujian, China, beside the Taiwan strait.
The historic part is like an central rounded island connected by bridges to the rest of China. We usually go to film there by high speed rail from Shenzhen or plane directly from Hong Kong or Shanghai.
The airport is quite in the middle of the city and it could be a time saver to use plane more than train. Even if we do not use videotapes anymore, this city offer few nice historical colonial buildings to film. The view to the sea is also nice as the convention center and surrounding hotels are all there. We can almost see Taiwan on the other side!
Director of Photography Challenges in Xiamen
Theses video are meant to be watched online as a videoblog but with the film quality look. Even if Artificial Intelligence Computing may be a boring subject for some; we decided to step up their previous videos with a more cinematic look. For us, filming is a real passion.
Hiring our DoP is not just to press a record button, but to make sure the overall result stand out from a blog video done with a phone or DSLR. As the attributed room was quite small, the obvious shooting challenge was to find a different background look for each of the interviewee.
The second challenge was the very short time to reset camera and light between each video recording. All went great on these 4 days shooting in Xiamen. The room had some dark wood walls and few light to move around, so it was a cosy time in Xiamen.
Thanks again for all IEEE team who support this project and made it happen.

Freelance video artist/blogger and cinema camera crew member.
You hiring may look like a simple freelance videographer, but you have a company paid camera operator with 20 years experience shooting such video. At the end, it’s clearly cheaper and safer than most competition if you put all in the balance. Also, only companies registered in mainland China are allow to work there. It’s quite obvious that many bloggers with “business visa” or “tourist visa” trying to get extra pocket money as cinematographer but the risk for you is huge. He may simply not be able to pass security check in place for some specific political event.
In Xiamen this days; another political conferences was on, and the visa and gear were checked right at the airport. Without the support of a video production company, it will be impossible to pass these security check.
The second obvious advantage is the experience using high end camera. We recorded all the footage from Xiamen in S-Log Cine EI at 10 bits 4K. That let any production house enough room to play with exposure and color correction if they really like to get exact same look to each of the sequences. It’s 4 days shooting look like done in just one.
