Live the Language…Beijing

Posted by on Mar 3, 2011 in Video | 2 Comments

Quick post today. As Beijing is my Chinese adopted hometown, I couldn’t resist posting this video when I came across it.

‘Live the Language’ seems to be a new series of advertisements for English First, a language training school. I like the feel to these videos and suspect that they have been shot on a DSLR. Many shots throughout the video have that very shallow depth-of-field feel to them that typifies video shot with a DSLR.

Watching this video is also a test of your Chinese knowledge! How many characters can you recognize?

    Hello! I was happy to see one of our Live the Language films on your blog!

    Did you see that this weekend we posted 3 more films in the same series, from Sydney, Vancouver and Los Angeles? They were produced by the same creative team as the first films.

    Check them out at – or if you prefer Vimeo:
