Shooting in Tyrol, Austria

January 2017 started with a great filmic project, but the blue sky is deceiving: -13 °C (about 8°F),  every piece of equipment had to be hand-carried up! Worst of all, we knew a storm was coming in! And rushing in high altitude is a challenge, believe me!

 High speed winds (see the ties of my sunglasses are flying about) gave us a hard time.

 Something always happens. The cable car had to undergo unexpected technical inspection; we got off and used the site for first great images. No time to lose!

 When too much wind made flying the drone impossible, the guys didn´t hesitate to"walk" it around the actor!
