The snappily titled Chuzhou Great Wall International Tourism Cartoon Creative Park aims to become one of China’s major film lots – a place where studios from throughout the country can rent out space and film at any number of pre-fab sets of world landmarks. Started in June of 2013, construction is still ongoing. The Acropolis is, right now, little more than a few stacked columns, but filming has already begun on a few finished set pieces.

Check out our photos and read the full story here, and watch the surreal video below.
