This wide range of production services comprises all video types which can include documentaries, corporate videos, music videos and social media videos. Each video production is different and requires unique skill sets with its own process.

Companies will benefit greatly, foremost from corporate videos, viral marketing videos and television commercials (TVC’s). These videos have shown that they can broaden brand awareness and with a well produced cinematic video, a company’s products or services will resonate more deeply with audiences. Youtube and social media videos are also highly valuable for reaching audiences. Some video productions will need to rely on more rigorous planning, higher budgets and more crew members, meanwhile, crowdfunding videos are examples of video productions that demand a more minimalistic approach and a smaller crew. Nevertheless, all stages of production require considerable planning and implementation.

Mbrella’s exceptional video production services, from pre-production to editing and visual effects, are geared towards telling the best story possible! Our film producers have a network of local Hanzou fixers who have extensive expertise regarding the city’s filming procedures and locations.

Top Filming Locations in Hangzhou

Film Production Company Hangzhou West Lake
West Lake has been ranked in the top ten scenic areas in China, and is listed as a World Cultural Heritage Site by UNESCO

Hangzhou’s ethereal West Lake panoramic views and cascading green hills are world renowned with poets and emperors alike having reveled in its beauty. It’s always kept spotlessly clean by droves of street sweepers and litter collectors. Scenic vistas draw you into a watercolour of willow-lined banks, mist-blanketed hills and the occasional stone-gate house.

Enveloped by mountains on three sides, the West Lake draws into the North Inner Lake, the Yuehu Lake, the West Inner Lake, the South Lake and the West Outer Lake via the Bai Causeway, the Su Causeway and the Yang Causeway. Between the North Inner Lake and the West Outer Lake lies the largest natural island, Solitary Hill.

As spectacular as it is, Hangzhou’s appeal is not limited to West Lake scenery. Additionally, there are many ancient pagodas and serene temples too. The city itself is a buzzing metropolis in its own right, with broad pedestrian walkways to wander, bustling nightlife and an increasingly cosmopolitan population.
