You guys are very professional, All of you here are the best "fans" of Amazing Race. It also amazing me...

Here is one picture took during the rehearsal of the roll-over, you can see the date is 11-12-06, I think it was the camera setting wrongly, the date was 12-12...Haha

I am very enjoy to work on this amazing show, all the people are very nice.

Yours,
Julian Cheng, SOA

This is the dry cleaners. The shot of D/O walking on Haiphong was only a few feet away.

Thank you so much Mr. Cheng for forgiving us!   :thankyou:

That was an amazing film segment--can you tell us anything about what it took technically to capture that since it clearly was a "one shot deal"? (I don't think Danny and Oswald would have wanted to do it again!) Very  :gj:

And did you get to meet them--we think they are pretty awesome around here!

And you are very gracious to come back here--we really appreciate it and are very pleased to  :welcome2: you here!

The  Roadblock also turned out to be in an  abandoned Police Quarters which turned out to be in Kennedy Town.

From the Film Services Office:

Quote
Former Kennedy Town Police Quarters
- 14-18 Ka Wai Man Road, Kennedy Town


Characteristics: Former Kennedy Town Police Quarters are made up of 3 blocks. Each block is 12 storeys high but they look a little different in height since they are built at different levels of a slope. There are 2 footbridges connecting Blocks A and B while Block C stands alone. The view of block B is very open with a great sea view while the other blocks benefit from the green surroundings. The place is far from the main road and is very quiet. The outlook looks very much like that of a large-scale hospital.

 


Not a bad idea to rent out your abandoned government buildings for film work--maybe WRP got a two-for-one deal!

Oh, I just watched the Hong Kong clips, haha really amazing me, haha.

We had many cameras there to shot this, (four cameras on the car, one camera underleaf the jumping stage, one one power-pod (me), another three cameras around the field, and the main following camera) of course it is a one shot deal, I also don't think that Danny and Oswald want to try a second take.
I saw them were very worry before the roll-over. They considered for a long time before they get on the stunt car. @_@
Thanks Amazing Race!

Yours,
Julian

Woot I guessed that there would be a fast forward this week and that O/D would use it (just from the car flipping preview)!

Awesome. I finally got something right.  :ninja

Yes, I would think a long time before I did that too! Did they have a lot of people test it out first? I hear that sometimes the host (Phil Keoghan) likes to try everything out himself!

I'll  bet it is fun to see something you have worked on come on TV. Were you allowed to see a preview of your work during editing at all or is this the first time you have seen it? Maybe it will get an Emmy nomination!

    The Stunt Driver, Bruce Law and his company, is the Top in HK, also famous in worldwide. They shot many films before. So They have test the roll-over many many times. But on that day, only one take, they didn't try the roll-over before but they did try the car speed.
    Phil didn't try the roll-over of course, haha.
    I just the first time watch the video via this forum, Thanks for sharing.

Yours,
Julian

YAY! A new Amazing Race Fan! :jumpy:

Now you'll want to keep watching with us to see how it all turns out!

How long have you been doing this? Do you travel all over or just stay in Hong Kong? Would you have gone to Macau with them too?

I find it interesting that in one of the insider videos C/M and D/O were considering taking a flight from KL to Macao!

This time I just shoot in HK. They did ask me to shoot in Macau, but I have another job in HK on that day, so I cannot make it.
I also want to travel all over, I think it should be more funny.

Julian

Oh too bad! It would have been fun for you to go with them to Macau I would think!

Was everyone nice to work with? We talked to someone in Ecuador where they also did some filming and he thought they were good to work with...
