The first trailer of my ‘big’ movie debut 2

Love at First Sight 2JISHOU, HUNAN — Back in September, I was called upon to play the part of a foreign visitor to Xiangxi Prefecture in a movie, 《一次性爱上2》 (Yi Ci Xing Ai Shang 2 — Love at First Sight 2)*. The first trailer for this “micro-movie,” a 45-minute web-only production, has just been released. Unfortunately, there’s no embedding options, so here’s the LINK.

The link will take you a Chinese video sharing site. Hopefully, you’ll be able to see it with no troubles. Meanwhile, I’ll try to download it and see if I can host from my own site or post it on YouTube.

There are no English subtitles yet, but there’s not much dialogue in the trailer, anyway. It’s a movie about romance, drama, spectacular scenery and the love of music.

* Interestingly enough, the Chinese phrase 一次性爱上 can be translated as “Love at First Sight,” but it can also be used to describe a one-night stand or a sexual escapade. This second possibility led to some interesting comments from my Chinese Internet friends. I had to assure them I was not acting in a porn movie, which, by the way, are illegal in China. So, I figure they were not thinking through the concept very carefully.

    I can’t get the video to show. I even turned off muh AdBlock! Got some nice video advertisements though.

    The ads are unavoidable. They’re part of the business model for China’s video sites. It should play the video, AFAIK. I downloaded the video, but it’s in a proprietary format, so I can’t upload to YouTube. Grrr! Try visiting my QQ Zone: The video is embedded there. I think it’ll play in Facebook, too.
