June was an exciting month here at Capella Singapore, as the hotel found itself right in the middle of a film shoot for the upcoming Taiwanese movie, Rhythm of the Rain. The cast and crew were at Capella Singapore for a whole week, filming various scenes at the hotel as well as around Singapore.
I loved seeing the behind-the-scenes process of shooting a movie. There were so many details to coordinate—from the sorting of the accommodations of cast and crew to helping with the location selection. Fortunately with over 30 acres of land at Capella Singapore, there were plenty of options!
My favorite scene was shot at the hotel’s entrance. The colonial building made the perfect background. On the second day of shooting the weather was perfect and the sun’s rays seemed to catch the windows of the colonial buildings creating beautiful dancing reflections. Even some members of the Capella Singapore family found their way into the scene as extras!
Once the set up began, it was really a sight to behold! There is so much set up and work that goes into creating the perfect moment. In this way it reminded me of working at Capella Singapore—there is a lot going on behind-the-scenes to create that unique and amazing experience for each of our guests.
The movie, Rhythm of the Rain, will be released this coming September throughout Asia and the Pacific, so be sure to look out for it. I can’t wait to see Capella Singapore make its film debut!
