Behind the scenes Paradox [Night Shoot]

Behind the scenes Paradox [Night Shoot]

Thanks for watching the Paradox movie all! We kept the following behind the scenes photo’s from you, since we didn’t want to spoil anything.

The night shoot was our first time on a movie-set and we had such an awesome experience. When we arrived, a cold morning back in February, everyone was busying around. Luckily the producers Martin and Steve from The LAB had some time to guide us around through the beautiful pine forest. We saw director Sean van Leijenhorst rehearsing with David Bowles, the amazing actor playing Dale Vandermeer (when we saw David’s first casting video we knew that he was the right person to translate our game character to big screen). We saw Cédric Larvoire, director of photography, and his crew preparing all the right lenses for the first take. Jennifer, art-director on set, was busy putting all the right things in the frame and Iveta Du, make-up artist, preparing our Laura Vanderboom, played by the talented Elena Kejvalová who had to stand in the cold with a dress. Lukasz and David preparing the special effects shots, Gaffer Colin putting all the electricity up, Ivana prepping all the food (sushi) and then we had 3 guys working with a 100+ meter tube for all the fog. And then we had to move quickly to the van, to dress-up, we also had a role to play.

And then we didn’t even talked about all the scenes we had to shoot. The most iconic and memorable is of course the converstation with Mr. Crow, but the most difficult one was where we Dale escaped through the door. Any clue how that is done ? ?

At 3 AM we were finally done and while we were lucky that the weather stayed perfect during the shoot. It started to snow!

Feel free to leave a review on our IMDB page. This will support the whole movie crew.

Ps. This will be part of two more behind the scenes photo series and we will conclude with an awesome making-of video!

Awesome photo credits by Gabriel Matula!
