Filming the Chinese Women's Army

I spent half of Sunday helping Adam and Rae film the largest scene in their upcoming documentary on Qui Jin.

Although my allergies made it a painful few hours, I enjoyed manning the second camera at Tilden Park and taking stills of the production. 34 extras put up with bitterly-cold wind, filling out the "army" and learning martial arts moves for the training session scene. It was fun to meet Li Jing; she was really funny.
