The Set… after considering everything from actual hotel rooms to building sets in the studio, we settled on an abandoned army barracks house outside of Tuen Mun.
No water. No electricity. No amenities. Everything had to be brought in or constructed at the location.
Still it was a great location. Virtually every room in the building was used in one way or another.
The highlight was the main living room/dining room area, which became the claustrophobic hotel suite.
Production Designer Longman Leung and his team transformed the derelict space into a fantastic slightly out-of-time, beyond it’s prime but holding on hotel suite. This was our main set where a key portion of the story takes place. If you look carefully, you can see in the photos where they extended the usable space out into the two outdoor patio areas.
