LostPensivos Films has been producing high-quality documentaries and commercial films since 2002. Our award-winning documentaries include A Farewell Song, The Poseidon Project and The Making of the Special Olympics. Commercial clients have included Disney, ExxonMobil, Philips, Unilever and most of the major advertising agencies. We’ve also provided production services for overseas broadcasters looking to shoot in China, including the BBC, Channel Four, ITV, National Geographic and Discovery Channel. Since 2007, our time-lapse division, ChinaTimelapse, has been shooting creative time-lapse for film and television as well as large-scale and legacy construction projects.



Full Service

LP Films is a full service film production company that specialises in cinematic storytelling. Our mission is to authentically connect our clients to their desired audience with quality films that live on the web, social platforms and in broadcast. Contact us to find out what we can do for you.


Creative Team

Unlike other film production companies, we have our own in-house creative team who will help develop your idea into a high-quality film. Our creative team is composed of both native English and Chinese speakers allowing your project to be produced in both languages simultaneously.


Production Services

For overseas production companies planning to shoot in China, LP Films has the contacts and experience to arrange your whole trip, including: permission to shoot, equipment, crew, cast, post-production facilities, hotels and internal flights, as well as specialist services including time-lapse, aerial and crane / jib work.


We create, shoot and edit beautiful films.
Enough said.



What we've been up to...

Killing game

The Killing Game Begins Shooting

Production is underway on The Killing Game, a new short film from LostPensivos, written and directed by Andrej Iliev and produced by Luo Tong. Max is a killer, a gun-for-hire with a glint in his eye and a flare for style. His latest mission takes him to the heart of Shanghai’s criminal underworld…but not all is as it seems.

We completed two days of shooting earlier this week, and will be wrapping up production with a further couple of days before the end of the month. Look out for our sneak peak trailer coming soon. In the meantime, check out these behind the scenes photos.

The Future Is Now

The Next Generation?

Time flies quickly when you’re having fun in film production. One moment you’re a fresh faced graduate, cutting your teeth as a runner on set, the next you’ve stepped up to the plate as a fully fledged assistant editor on a big budget commercial. Sure, you still dream of those days when you thought you could be an Academy Award winning director, or a celebrated screenwriter. But this is THE REAL WORLD! And in the immortal words of Cheryl Jones, “You got to be real…”

Funny how it all turned around, just a few short decades ago. The oft-spoke digital revolution unleashed a whole world of pain and passion on to the film scene. Today it isn’t just those who happen to grow up in Hollywood and San Fernando Valley that get to see their visions on screen, it’s anyone. The last enfants terribles of celluloid may preach it’s superiority, but the democratisation of cinema into the hands of all has yielded revealed great new storytellers and innovation to the world.

For the past twenty years, kids with a dream and a camcorder have been wielding their own world view. Those of us who were kids twenty years ago now gaze in wonder as the next generation of kids wield ipads and iphones, go-pros and after effects, experimenting with the same magic we felt watching Jurassic Park stomp onto screens in 1993.

What will the next generation of filmmakers look like? Easy tech and online tutorials fused with inquisitive minds is spawning innovators through innovation. Check out our interview with Finley Jones, and 11 year old Shanghai native who loves Vine star Zach King, and dreams of making his own movies one day.

When coming from the north: after passing IKEA on your right, keep heading south on Caoxi Road. Go past the next main intersection and then look out for a ‘7 Days Inn’ on the corner of Caoxi Road and Lane 258.  Turn right here then proceed down the lane and take the first right into compound number 23.
