Video Production Services Xi’an
From corporate videos and social media videos to music videos or documentaries, video production comes in many forms with each type possessing their own purpose and process. Mbrella Films’ video production services encompass everything you need to create an outstanding video.
Social media videos, corporate videos, viral marketing videos and television commercials (TVC’s) are types of video productions companies will rely on early. This is due to the fact that these types of videos expand brand awareness and with a well produced cinematically shot video, audiences can connect with the company’s products or services on a deeper level. Social media and Youtube videos are also incredibly valuable for a wider audience reach. While some video productions require more detailed planning, higher budgets and more crew members, crowdfunding videos, for example, will benefit from a small production crew and a more minimalistic approach. Whatever the approach, every stage of production requires careful planning and implementation. From pre-production, through shooting to post-production, the goal is always to tell the best story!

No conversation or piece of writing on Xi’an would be complete without discussing ‘The Terracotta Army’ which isn’t just Xi’an’s foremost sight. It has long been one of the most famous archaeological finds in the history of the world. There are thousands upon thousands of incredibly detailed life-size Terracotta soldier models that represent the guard troops of the first emperor – Qin Shi Huang which were molded in parts, fired, then put together and painted.
The discovery of the army of warriors was completely unanticipated and today offers some of the greatest insights we have had into the world of ancient China . In 1974, peasants who were drilling a well uncovered an underground vault that eventually led to the discovery of thousands of Terracotta soldiers and horses in battle formation. Over the years, the site has become so famous that many of its unusual attributes are now famous, such as the fact that no two soldier’s faces are the same. The site was also featured in Hollywood blockbuster ‘The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor’.
Xi’an is one of the few cities in China where the spectacular old city walls still stand. These walls were built in 1370 during the Ming dynasty and the imposing 12 meter high walls are surrounded by a dry moat forming a perimeter of 14km. A lot of sections have been restored or rebuilt with access ramps located inside the major gates, with the exception of the South Gate, where the entrance is outside the walls. There’s another entrance inside the walls next to the Forest of Stelae Museum.
