This production is the last one I made at the Länna studios before they closed down. It is also the most technically advanced recording I have ever made. My idea for the camera was to move vertically from an extreme close-up to a wide shot at a height of 5 meters while constantly rotating. Then it would slowly lower down and tilt up to a wide horizontal image that revealed the room. I thought this would be impossible but Micke Höglund built a camera head that was movable in 3 axes, and we recorded with a small light DV camera that Tomas Boman masterfully handled hanging from the big crane.
