SUPERCAPITALIST - PRINCIPAL PHOTOGRAPHY WRAPPED!


The day has finally come...After 27 Days, 3 countries and 2 rainstorms we've come to the end of the 2nd Phase of production... SuperCapitalist has wrapped!I was brought on to this project more than 8 months ago by Derek Ting after meeting him through our mutual friend Chung Tsang.  This was Derek's three year passion project and I'm honored to able to help him bring it to reality.I will go into more in-depth detail in future blogs but for now, here are some highlights from this incredible journey...This was Day 1 and our first location was The Hong Kong Poker House.  The ironic thing was that a few days later, the place was busted on its last day of operation for "illegal gambling"!  Talk about great timing![](/attachments/2010/09/14/16/61114_201009141658122.thumb.jpg)Being precise in LKF.One of many luxury cars we were lucky enough to use for our shoot.Fellow Alivenotdeader, Desmond So played a news reporter.Improvised Filmmaking, Hong Kong style![](/attachments/2010/09/14/16/61114_201009141656466.thumb.jpg)Last minute re-scheduling when we got rained out![](/attachments/2010/09/14/16/61114_201009141656465.thumb.jpg)Rain or shine, we still gotta get the shot![](/attachments/2010/09/14/16/61114_201009141658127.thumb.jpg)Blocking the shot at a night time wetmarket.Apparently this location was used in quite a few hong kong productions.We had the privilege to shoot in HYDE, a new members-only club/pool hall that hadn't opened yet.One of the scenes was also on a party junk boat with a bunch of models![](/attachments/2010/09/14/16/61114_201009141656468.thumb.jpg)I felt like a space marine with all this gear on![](/attachments/2010/09/14/17/61114_201009141702501.thumb.jpg)Of course, there was still some time to goof around on set![](/attachments/2010/09/14/17/61114_201009141702504.thumb.jpg)And finally, we had the wrap party also at HYDE.This has been a fantastic experience and I've definitely learned a lot and put my skills to the test.  We started in New York, then came back to Hong Kong and finally filmed in Macau. Thanks to the AMAZING AMAZING crew who put their blood sweat and tears to get this project in the digital can and put out 200%.  This could not have happened without you guys.It almost feels anti-climatic now that we are finished, since the moment went by so fast. Its that summer camp feeling of getting to know a group of people in a short period of time and now we have to go back home.  I will miss seeing them everyday and hope to work with them on the next project.  But this the life in this industry.We're only half way there.  Now its on to the 3rd Phase...POST PRODUCTION![](/attachments/2010/09/14/17/61114_201009141702506.thumb.jpg)For the latest, please join the facebook page:http://www.facebook.com/supercapitalist[![](/attachments/2010/09/14/18/61114_201009141805251.thumb.jpg)](/batch.download.php?aid=7772580)
