…small Making off, and hard work of great team.
H.Malir : This was the job for United States army, US national guard… The director Mikael Salomon wanted to show some dangerous situations such forests on fire, which can not be shot real. Helicopters (in some shots), cars, trees, landscapes, fire and forests were created digitally. Some scenes being shot, at military base Camp Robert and Los Alamitos – California, with some unique equipment such as huge gimbal – strong enough to move real Blackhawk helicopter in all axis.
P.Nemec: It was lots of fun, but more importantly, It was honour and pleasure to collaborate on such a big project. With perfect team of people, in UPP house. 😉
