793 (Official Video)

Almost 50 Vikings and monks, a total of 70 people on set and only two and a half days of shooting time ... that was the task. Despite the difficult conditions, such as rain and equipment failures, we had a lot of fun filming with the guys from Obscurity again. We received a lot of BTS material that we don't want to withhold from anyone, of course.

Filming is a lot of paperwork. Our shotlist comprised almost 200 shots.

Johnny Depp once said: 'Awards are not as important to me as when I meet a 10-year-old kid who says, that it loves Captain Jack Sparrow.'
We feel the same. If the customer is satisfied, then we have achieved our goals. ...we are of course still happy about an award :)
