Born around 2,500 years ago, Confucius is one of the most influential of China’s philosophers. His legacy of teachings and ethical principles  stress self-enlightenment through the Five Virtues of charity, justice, propriety, wisdom and loyalty. Confucius’ influence on social and family practices can still be found in China and other Asian countries today.

In 2003, 302 Stories, Inc. was hired by Applied Info Systems / D2 Creative to spend three weeks in China shooting stock footage to be sold for use in programming produced before and during the 2008 Olympics in China.


One stop on this trip included documenting Confucius’ home. Nearby there is a large outdoor amphitheater where a huge cast re-enacts the four eras of the great philosopher’s life. This video captures brief clips of this amazing performance.

This video sampler was produced for Applied Info / D2 Creative, who has licensed it to Getty Images, the stock footage library. To date, this footage continues to produce royalty revenues for Applied Info / D2 Creative.
