re-creating “østbanen” train station for “The king´s Choice”
I am at the moment half way trough the film “Kings Choice”, directed by Erik Poppe. A part of the film takes place when the king and his royal family escape the German soldiers by train from Oslo Central station in 1940.
To be able to cover a distance of 60 meter (200 ft.) with more then 100 actors and actors, we needed to build a 12×12 meter(40x40ft.) blue screen. Because of the giant size, we had to be sure the construction would survive strong wind. We used 6 heavy barracks.
