A new Taiwanese movie "在一個死亡之後" ("Beyond Death'') is shooting now in Chiayi City in south Taiwan with Director 蕭雅全 [Mr. Hsaio Ya-Chuan] at the helm during a 30-day location shoot. Some informal and  unofficial still photos taken bymy friend Mr Liao in Chiayi. Thank you, Mr Liao, for the good photos.

As we learn more about this movie, this blog will add some information. The movie's theme is about air pollution and it is not a comedy but a serious Taiwanese drama about serious issue. 蕭雅全 the director decided to place his story in the "local" city of Chiayi where a different kind of life obtains that the one seen in Taipei or Kaohsiung. A crew of about 100 people were on hand the other day to help with the shoot, from grips, microphone technicians, video camera people, still photographers, and the lighting and camera crews, not to mention the assistant director and the two young stars of the movie Miss Chen and Mr Huang from Taipei.

Director Hsiao, born in 1967, (蕭雅全) is a screenwriter and a director. He was the screenwriter and director for the movie ''第36個故事 ''.
 \He also made the short film ''命帶追逐 '' in the year 2000. (35 minutes long)



 THE DIRECTOR WRITES ON HIS FACEBOOK PAGE:

經典賽沒贏,也不是假日,電影劇組卻在收工後,在主場景五金行裡喝起來了。嵐姐帶來三瓶高粱,當場全部解決。廣告比較少這樣的氣氛,雖然大家都是好朋友,但廣告太短暫,總是來去一陣風,明天各有各的事。

來嘉義拍片,已經進到第五週,再一週就要離開,轉往北台灣與東京。很珍惜這樣的相處,一群人窩在外地拍片,像營隊,當然也有衝突,但還不會太劣質。關於這部電影,並不是容易的片,但默默地,也走到這裡了。
...

前仆後繼,是我對這部片子的感受,也幾乎是這部片子的主題。我們用掉了一堆演員,用掉一堆場景,每一兩天都會有不同的演員或場景殺青,就像車輪戰,一波接著一波。這次我們又造了一個景:五金行,細節鉅細靡遺,可惜不能像朵兒咖啡館一樣留下來,只能讓它存在電影裡。

音樂的核心是進行曲,一切都指向同一個方向:前進、前仆後繼、在一個死亡之後。
Chiayi resident Joanna Ho translated and summarized the above comment for me: thank you so much, Joanna!

Cause of this film, "After That", the director felt the "family atmosphere". It's never gotten before. After Chiayi, he needed to leave to North of Taiwan and Tokyo so he treasured every moment with everyone in the job. Although it's not easier than the advertisements, everyone still stay to the end. I think the definition of this film was "前仆後繼" that taking up the positions of the fallen and rise to fight one after another. This time, there are many actors and scenes. It's like the "Wheel War" which was tactic of fighting an enemy by turns to wear him down...next and next. We also made a filmed scene, Hardware Store which was exquisite and specific. The heart of the music was “the march” and everything was the same direction, then moving, taking up the positions of the fallen and rise to fight one after another and "After That".

The movie has a tentative unofficial name in English, "Beyond Death" -- [The tentative name of the movie in Chinese Mandarin is "在一個死亡之後" but there is no official title yet and things might change, of course, before the movie is released in 2018.

In  addition to the famous KANO movie, about the 1931 baseball team in Chiayi during the Japanese Colonial Period, this is the first Taiwanese movie to locate the main story in modern 2017 Chiayi. Thank you, 蕭雅全! Gambatte, cast and crew!

Director [蕭雅全] has made two films in his career, and this is his third one. He is known as a very good director for TV commercials and MV shoots.

The Chiayi story of the movie partly takes place at a local dry cleaning store where the woman in the movie, about 25 years old, is working. Her friend comes in the ask her to dry clean his clothes and that was the scene the film crew was shooting in these photos taken by Mr Liao, a local guy in Chiayi who kindly resent his photos to me via Facebook last night. The shoot was along a side street near the Mistukoshi Department store during the day and the night, and many local people who passed by on motorscooters and by foot while shopping or stopping off at nearby food stalls and restaurants and stopped to watch the action, like a Hollywood movie location shoot.

The director is in the center of the photo.
 

Here are some informal scenes of the movie being made on the streets of Chiayi on February 12, along the a side street in town near a ''Dry Cleaning Shop'', since the movie's story or part of it, takes place in a fictional dry cleaning store in Chiayi.

And the movie crew and cast also shot some scenes at the Chiayi Train Station on March 9 in the afternoon. They were shooting on the platform. This photo is from the Internet and is not from the movie location. But the platform looks like this:
