Shanghai Mornings

Days are short and intense in Shanghai. Sun rises around 6am and a 5pm sunset gives you not much time to doodle and dawdle through your day. At least not when you’re trying to make a movie, that is. And especially not, when almost all you’d love to get in the can in day exteriors.

The magic hour lasts a subtropical 10-20 minutes, than you got consistent light and you’ll be able – thanks to your remarkable Chinese crew – to race through the day with results you’d been only dreaming of.

We had quite some magic hour and early morning scenes, so more than once we traded the camera truck for our warm beds and went at a nightly hour out to get that brief and precious time of magic between day and night.

I was lucky and my 1st AC Lambert Strehlke took the time to collect some memories of our Shanghai mornings along the road.
