The Qingdao Oriental Movie Metropolis, a mega movie and television industrial center, which is located in Qingdao West Coast New Area (Qingdao WCNA) has provoked a lot of conversation on the internet for supporting The Wandering Earth 1 & 2 — two popular Chinese sci-fi blockbusters.
The center has a 10,000 square-meter high-tech monomer soundstage, Asia's largest underwater stage, and advanced digital video and audio equipment that can process motion capturing, virtual shooting, 3D scanning, digital imaging technology, and real-time rendering clusters.
Near the center of the metropolis lies Qingdao Cangmashan Film City. Covering an area of 500 mu (about 3.33 hectares), the film city provides a great number of film sets.
Adjacent to the center, there is also a high-tech video industrial park that gives technological help to people working in the center. Currently, more than 100 enterprises have been introduced to the park, including about 20 industry leaders.
