Directed by Peter Chan, Ci Ma had completed its shooting in Beijing as it moved its shooting to Shanghai Film Park. On the second day of Chinese New Year, Peter and arts director Tony Ching Siu Tung join the shooting crew followed by Andy Lau whom flew over from Hong Kong on the third day of Chinese New Year.

Shooting starts on the fourth day of Chinese New Year, it will be shooting a village scene where Andy was the only important actor. Andy whom shaved his head wore a grayish green woolen robe, with "scars" on the left of his head. When he alight from the car, most of the people could not recognise him. It would be a indoor shooting but with the presence of an elevator and Ching Siu Tung appearing, it's believed there would be fighting scenes.

The person in-charge of the props expressed that Andy and the extras only used 15 swords which is a small number. All the swords are made of wood, it can be re-use, the crew had spent a lot on the swords which is a major task on the props department.

It was heard that since shooting had started, an average of 2,000 swords were used, some male leads need to use 15-20 swords per day. Peter had planned one month ago to switch the shooting location to the film park to save time. Despite the difficult shooting, it didn't affect the shooting crew Chinese New Year festive mood as since starting work on the second day of Chinese New Year, Andy and Peter had distributed red packets to the crew members to wish them a good first day of work.
