I came to Taiwan from NY. And now I'm getting ready to shoot my feature film in a few months. I've done a feature documentary film on S16 here before. Hardware-wise they got pretty much everything. Power voltage are the same. You'll most likely get everything from Arrow Studios. Everything is ARRI.
What role would you be playing? DP? Director? The key crew here are still pretty weak. Most of them don't speak english, not fluently. The best people are in the commerical industry so try to get those people. (Maybe I'll hook you up with them after my film if they are any good) Most importantly, get the right line producer. Who's your producers or the company you're working with? What kind of project is it?

You're right. That's where things come in nasty. The key ppl are usually much older, like everywhere else in the film industry. These people have the most experience. However, their cumulative experience had always made me having to compromise what I know is good, only because I'm younger. Many have never made a feature film before. Even if they have, the way they run things are very different than what I'm used to in NY. Thus, I tend to look for younger crew memebers or not local people to man my key positions. Then again, there are some veteran key people who are very open minded and likes to learn new things. Rare, but they do exist in Taiwan. Ask your producers!
