An afternoon of hiking through Malibu Creek State Park made for a productive first location scout for Tiger of the White Sun.
With tall mountains, rocky outcroppings, and a few picturesque bodies of water, the stunning vistas in Malibu Creek are a perfect stand-in for the mountainous regions near Changsha where our action takes place.
The park has a fascinating history as a movie ranch, having been previously owned by Paramount and 20th Century Fox and played host to Hollywood films and TV shows like M*A*S*H (plus a Tarzan trilogy in the 1930s.)
Stay tuned for pictures from location scout II in Arroyo Seco!
