Forums > Living in Kunming > Video production rates
Filming and editing are two separate things.
FWIW I have had a few short (~3-5 minute) videos (already filmed) professionally edited recently for very reasonable rates... executed within a day, and under 800/minute. Very happy with output quality and service.
I can give you the editor I used's contact details if you wish, send me a PM.

Shenzhen is awesome! So much going on. Everyone is from somewhere else so you don't get that 'lao difang ren' mentality with swearing, arguing on the street, spitting, day-long-mahjong, etc. It's a very young city. The sort of place you can literally make anything happen. A true city of opportunity.

No coverage so I thought to share. Yesterday morning on Hongshan Nan Lu near the intersection of Hongshan Dong Lu a man with a mental illness took an axe to the general public. Multiple people were seriously injured. Police turned up but were unable to constrain the attacker, and ultimately shot him.
Apparently the attacker was a Chinese man in his mid 30s.

I read an article recently, recalled some TM threads here and looked them up.
It seems sad that as an international organization supposedly fostering effective and professional communication they are unable to provide a current, geographically delineated list of clubs and events.
Forums > Travel Yunnan > Yunnan Covered Bridges--Seeking Old Photographs
You should get in touch with Jim Goodman, he has pictures of a lot of these that he took himself from the 1990s through early 2000s.
As far as older ones go, he has published a number of books on the province some of which almost certainly include older images which he could provide. (Likely including the one near Baoshan.)
I also have a collection of old Yunnan photographs and other imagery and could provide you with a French era (~1900) black and white of one in southeast Yunnan.
Jim's website which has his email: blackeagleflights.blogspot.hk/
Or just email me and I'll put you in touch with him. My email: walter at the domain name of the website pratyeka.org/
I have a few images of covered bridges from ~2001 onward, but also photographs of some old photos. Unfortunately they would take me a long time to dig up and I don't have time right now. I would suggest contacting the various prefectural museums for additional assistance (eg. Dali, Baoshan, Kunming, Jianshui, Mengzi/Honghe). There is also a private museum in Tengchong which would likely be of use.
A copy of the finished book would be appreciated.
