  2. I was an animator on this project (the one complaining how though and warm it was ;))

    the longest shot to record was the snow falling on the city, it lasted 7 hours to shoot, and with that amount of burning candles, no breaks where given 😉

    I actually post here to set up a litte correction, it wasn’t shot in a car park, but in some kind of attic of one of the production company’s (CZAR) office location

    1. Hey Tom,

      I can only imagine how difficult it would be to deal with so many candles!

      Thanks for the extra bit of information as well as the correction.
