over 90 percent of films in mainland china are shot on arri digital cameras.
barely anyone shoots film in mainland china. there apparently is a small lab in beijing film academy, but those who aspire to shoot film here nowadays often plan to use labs in europe or japan.
doyle shot in the mood for love and chungking express in hk, great/iconic films.

Just curious Joshua, I'm interested in traveling to Asia for possibly 2 years and was curious to know how its like working overseas as a cinematographer. Was it difficult finding work due to a language barrier?
