Chinese filmmaker swoons over heritage locations in Orange, NSW for potential future feature film
Silver Compass Tours recently hosted Chinese filmmaker & producer, Rebecca Chee for a three-day bespoke itinerary which had been designed and developed to introduce Rebecca and her team to heritage locations in the Orange region that could be ideal as ‘quintessential regional Australia’ filming locations.
Rebecca is head of Mu Pictures, and her interest in the Orange region was captured by a blog post written by one of the guests on the Chinese social media influencer visit Silver Compass Tours hosted in May. You can read the blog post here >> (or at least look at the pictures, it’s in Mandarin!)
Rebecca contacted Silver Compass Tours via our WeChat Chinese social media channel and we designed a 2-day itinerary specifically aimed at introducing her to some iconic local sites – including the Old Errowanbang Woolshed, the Amusu Theatre in Manildra, the Old Convent in Borenore, the heritage Yallunguh mansion section of the Byng Street Hotel, Duntryleague mansion and the historic village of Carcoar. We also carefully selected site to showcase that would benefit greatly from inclusion in a feature film as a way to contribute to the preservation of their cultural heritage.
She now plans to return to the region in August with a delegation of six senior officials from the Chinese government’s China Film Corporation and the Beijing Film Production Co. to introduce them to Orange as a potential location for her proposed film.
