Shenzhen, Hong Kong’s direct connection to China’s mainland, is a modern metropolis in Southeast China. It is one of China’s most important cities with a population of a staggering 12 million plus people. The city’s astronomical growth has been astounding!
Only 50 years ago, Shenzhen was not much more than a fishing village with roughly 30,000 people. Since 1980, the city has grown at a phenomenal rate thanks to being declared a special economic zone, meaning the Chinese government opened up to foreign investment and technology without needing the prior approval of the central government. From 1980 the city grew at a phenomenal rate, known in China as “Shenzhen speed”, as large investments increased, both domestic and foreign capital. Now a popular shopping and entertainment destination, Shenzhen is also home to a plethora of popular Chinese IT and technology companies. Such enterprises include Huawei, Tencent, Mindray, Netac, Xunlei, DJI, Han’s Laser, BGI and BYD which is why it has been nicknamed “The Silicon Valley of China”. China’s stark economic evolution along with the government’s new investments in the film industry have led to an increase in skilled and experienced crew members for visiting productions.

Video Production Services Shenzhen
Video production comes in various forms, with music videos, documentaries, corporate videos and event videos all serving a unique purpose. For companies looking to create videos for their brand, it’s common to focus primarily on corporate videos, viral marketing videos, and television commercials (TVC’s). These videos are crucial to widening a brand’s awareness. A great video will enable audiences to connect more viscerally with the brand’s products or services.

Top Filming Locations in Shenzhen
Now having grown into a highly modernized international metropolis, Shenzhen boasts many skyscrapers. Shenzhen had 262 skyscrapers above 150 meters completed by 2018, leading to the city’s ranking of third in the world, behind only Hong Kong and New York.
The China Resources Tower is nicknamed the Spring Bamboo due to its design taking inspiration from a rising bamboo shoot. It is a 392-metre skyscraper situated in Nanshan, Shenzhen. The building was completed in 2018 surpassing Shun Hing Square as the 3rd tallest building in Shenzhen.
Diwang Mansion, one of the city’s tallest buildings in Shenzhen, is the perfect place for breathtaking views of the Shenzhen-Hong Kong border. The Meridian View center, located on the 69th floor at a height of 384 meters, houses telescopes with which you can see the entire city as the cityscape houses strips of green entwined with gleaming skyscrapers and modern architectural wonders.
Shenzhen boasts gorgeous scenery with surrounding mountains, sea, long beaches, islands, sea cliffs and reefs.
Like it’s neighbor Hong Kong, Shenzhen is much more than soaring skyscrapers and shopping malls. The Nanshan mountains in Shekou provide beautiful views of the ocean. The area’s tranquillity and remoteness provide a striking contrast to the hustle and bustle of the city. Aside from Dameisha, a quieter beach spot is Xiaomeisha beach, which is situated further along the coast.
Another possible filming location is the Window of the World, which is a ‘mini-globe’ of sorts where you can find miniature replicas of the Eiffel tower, the Niagara falls and the leaning tower of Pisa. Mbrella Films will secure top filming locations in Shenzhen.
