There are many opportunities for photographers and videographers in creating 4K content, currently the market demand for 4K content is insatiable. China’s first 4K Cantonese Opera movie ‘Madam White Snake – The Affection’ started filming in Guangzhou, capital of south China’s Guangdong Province, on Dec. 26, 2017. This is also the first 4K traditional Chinese opera movie in China. Based on the background of West Lake in Hangzhou, ‘Madame White Snake’ is a household love legend in China.
The statistics show that Guangdong owns the largest market for Chinese film consumption, accounting for one in seven of the country’s box office takings each year. In recent years, Chinese consumers spend more on 4K films, while most 4K film sources are still imported.
