Interested in Language
I have a friend in China I usually chat to her through Paltalk Messenger. I wanted to tell her a sentence but didn't know how to say the sentence grammatically correct.
I am totally confused about that. I don't know how to say. I have problem with the bold written parts. I don't know which one to choose. Would you please be nice enough to help me on that? What's your opinion about my above sentences? How would you say it if you were me?1. If I come to China I will ask you to help me to take some films from/of/in beautiful places in your city.
2. If I come to China I will ask you to help me to shoot some films from/of/in beautiful places in your city.
3. If I come to China I will ask you to help me to shoot from/of/in beautiful places in your city.
I mean making a film with my video camera. [something like a documentary broadcasted on the BBC]
Suppose me as a tourist who goes to China and records what he sees on the streets. [By using his video camera]

Just one more thing. Once I asked this question in another forums and a native English speaker told me that:
Shoot/take a film/shoot a film + from/of/in?
"Shoot" is jargon used in the movie-making business.
She said, it's better to use the word "take"
Do you agree with her?
