China's 'Hollywood' shines in business
Updated: Monday, 28 May 2012, 07:59






Events happen every day at China's "Hollywood", where there has been outdoor scenery available free for domestic and foreign crews to shoot movies and TV dramas since 2000.

The teams that visit Hengdian for the variety of shooting locations have created a huge demand for the service sector in the town, boosting its growth.

Sprinkling of stardust pulls in the tourists, making service sector grow Entertainment celebrities attract not only huge crowds of fans but bring about opportunities for the development of the service sector. This has been perfectly demonstrated by Hengdian, a town in East China's Zhejiang province.

Many Chinese people know of the Hengdian World Studios. However, its parent, Hengdian Group, was originally established as an industrial enterprise and its business mainly deals with industries including electronics, pharmaceuticals and chemicals.

Hengdian Group created a 19th-century Guangzhou street scene covering 319 mu (21.3 hectares) in just more than four months, which has developed into the world's largest film studio.

Hengdian Group invested more than 7 billion yuan ($111 million) in the construction of the set. It boasts 28 large-scale scenic spots and 11 indoor studios.

The outdoor scenic spots include buildings featuring :
1. The architecture of the Ming and Qing dynasties (1368-1911)
2. An imitation of the Palace of the Qin Dynasty (221-206 BC)
3. A Guangzhou street scene
4. A Hong Kong street scene
5. A riverside scene featuring Tomb Sweeping Day (Ching Ming Festival).

A move that distinguished Hengdian World Studios from other studios in the country came in 2000, when Hengdian World Studios Co, the operator of the studios, made it free to shoot outdoor scenes there. This attracted a significantly growing number of cast and crew to China's "Hollywood".

Over the past eight years, a total of more than 900 crew have visited Hengdian studios to make movies and TV dramas, including some from foreign countries. The number of extras recommended to crew through the extras union under the company's control exceeded 4 million in recent years, according to the Hengdian Chinese Film Industrial Park, a national organization founded in 2004 to promote the development of the film and TV drama industries.

The teams that visit Hengdian for the variety of shooting locations created a huge demand for the service sector in the town, boosting its growth. The tertiary industry in the town of Hengdian generated more than 6 billion yuan in revenues last year, accounting for one third of the town's gross domestic product. The job opportunities created in the service sector exceeded 36,000, said Zhu Guoqiang, deputy director of the administration committee at Hengdian Chinese Film Industrial Park. Tourism, catering and hotel services, costume-making and rental for film equipment and props constitute the majority of the service sector in the town.

There are 14 featured shows scattered at different scenic locations around the studios. They derive from the characteristics of the location or are inspired by the films or TV dramas shot there.
"All the shows at Hengdian studios are performed for limited periods. We are continuously creating something new," Zeng said.

As well as tourists, crews are also the main clients of hotels. Zhou said that there are at present about 40 crews shooting in the studios and there have been 50 at the same time.
Currently, the hotel accommodation capacity of Hengdian contributes more than half that of Dongyang, its governing county-level city, with the total number of beds exceeding 15,000. However, its potential remains big because, during the peak travel season, some tourists stay at hotels within an hour's drive from Hengdian.

As the largest base in China for the rental of film and TV production equipment and film props and the hiring of extras, Hengdian exports a variety of resources related to the industry to other areas where filming is being undertaken.

No worries. This was 4.6 quake on the Richter scale, which typically is not very damaging. It hit in Hebei, east of Beijing and a long way from Shanghai.

I think that the 2 F/F teams are safe through the first leg because of the pitstop photos

Prophet and slowhatch gave this information in live sightings thread:
If the exif is reliable, the blondes at 1:48 and mohawk at 2:12.
And the pink girls at 14:10. I don't know where the goat guys are but they were there at 13:04

And in another photo, I see Big, of big n small, yellow shirt, amongst a crowd up at the pitstop. So assume they are safe as well? It looks like they were checked in and watching others hit the matt. Wonder where they are in relation to the other time stamped photos.

In order of the time stamps given
Goat guys (Beekman boys) 1304 (1:04)
Blondes at 1:48 (1348)
Pink girls (Sri lankan sisters) 1410 (2:10)
Green Mohawk at 1412 (2:12)

Watching this all unfold here makes this the most dynamic and best spoiling on the internet! Great work! My partner will be flying through Europe this week and will be on close watch! (although probably too soon from Asia)

If they had a 12 hour pitstop, Leg 2 should have already started for the lead teams.

If the Exif data is accurate, we can make the following conclusions:

Four teams were spotted leaving LongYang Road station at 12:00:
The two bearded guys,
The muscly guy and blonde girl,
The blonde girls,
Jaymes & James

The first flight landed about an hour earlier, so that fits in well with this sighting.

That means there are two other teams that were on the first flight as well.

The blonde girls were spotted checking in less than two hours later. Spotted checking in within the next half an hour were Nadine & Natalie and Mr & Mrs Greenbeard, so they may well be the two other first flight teams.
