Alchemist Films is a bilingual China video production house based in Shanghai and Beijing, China that specializes in fixing productions for overseas clients. Our team of English-speaking fixers and producers has extensive experience working with Western creatives and Chinese crews.

Our company has provided professional video production services and support in China since 2011. Over the years, we have helped countless clients run smooth and seamless video productions in Shanghai, Beijing, Shenzhen, and throughout China. Today, we are one of China’s top video production companies specializing in fixing services for premium documentaries and TV commercials.

COVID has made it quite difficult for our clients to travel internationally to China. To help meet our clients’ demand for China video content, we reached out and compiled a list of competent, trustworthy local and foreign production crews in China using our years of experience. With state-of-the-art live monitoring and mainframe level, international data transfers are facilitated by our IT team. This allows us to continue working with foreign directors and producers over the internet.
