We worked on two stages, next to each other – moving from stage to stage. Jean-Pierre would run one stage VIZ would work the other stage. We had two D.O.P.’s Stephen Blackman and Patrick Otten, one for each sound stage. At the end of the shoot extra material would be shot by Jean Poisson and Benoit Talenton.
A week before the definitive shoot we were able to test the effects at Monev studios in Brussels. This “hands-on” test was very important enabling us to communicate directly with director Raf Wathion about the results. Up until then we had been sending test movies over the internet.
