Video production has many varying types that each have their own fundamental purpose, such as documentaries, music videos, corporate videos and Youtube Videos. Mbrella Films offers a vast array of video production services for every type of video.
The types of video productions most companies will primarily focus on are corporate videos, viral marketing videos and television commercials (TVC’s). Videos like these help broaden their brand awareness with a well produced video also enable audiences to connect with the company. Other video productions such as social media, YouTube videos and event videos are also essential for reaching a wider audience. Production sizes can differ substantially with some productions requiring more planning, higher budgets and a bigger crew. However, crowdfunding videos are an example of a much smaller production which will benefit from a more minimal approach.

Top Filming Locations in Chengdu
One of Chengdu’s many stunning locations and architectural marvels is called Anshun Bridge which literally translates to “Bridge of Peace and Propitiousness”. It is located beside Hejiang Pavilion along the Funan River (Jin River). The bridge has been devastated by floods several times and was rebuilt in 2003 as a replacement.
The bridge’s architecture was influenced during the ancient Ming and Qing dynasties and is 81 meters long and 6 meters wide. The bridge’s handrail represents traditional Chinese folk culture and was carved with stunning patterns such as plum, orchid, bamboo and chrysanthemum. Two water beast statues are equipped to each side of the bridge’s pier and were believed by the ancient Chinese to be able to suppress the floods.
Another breathtaking location is the Wenshu (Manjushri) Monastery with an area that covers more than 12 acres. The monastery comprises five separate temples constructed from wood and stone. This complex was built in 1691 above the ruins of an earlier monastery which dates back to the time of the Southern Dynasties. The site also holds a number of other important cultural relics that include paintings and calligraphy by eminent Chinese artists and writers.
One of the most incredible UNESCO World Heritage Sites and considerably one of Chengdu’s top attractions is the Leshan Giant Buddha. This colossal stone statue of Maitreya is about 71 meters tall and is acknowledged as the largest sculpture of Buddha around the world. This colossal statue was first started by a Buddhist monk by the name of Haitong in AD 713. The work was continued by a number of other monks and artists, after his death until it was eventually finished in AD 803.
There are a host of stunning locations in the province, none more so than Mount Emei. The grandiose Mount Emei’s highest peak is the Peak of Ten Thousand Buddhas. It stands at an elevated height of 3099 meters and is widely regarded as one of the four Holy Mountains. The scenery surrounding Mount Emei is truly breathtaking and it’s also of great spiritual and cultural importance because of its crucial role in the introduction of Buddhism into China. It’s especially rich vegetation, ranging from subtropical evergreen forests to subalpine pine forests.
