“The filming went even better than expected. We shot the entire movie within the planned timeframe. Of course, this is all possible when the preparation is done comprehensively and well. The entire team around the brothers Nebojša Lukić and Bojan Lukić in Beli Manastir did not just do a good job but an excellent one. Considering that it was the first time that the brothers and their company UBS built a film set, they delivered an incredible and outstanding performance. Without it, the movie wouldn’t have been possible.”

Katušin also said that the whole cast and crew had fun every day. They worked together and spent time together. The movie’s budget is between three to seven million euros. However, Katušin claims that there is no difference in quality between high-budget movies of 100 million euros and this movie because the best camera and lighting were also used in this movie. So, there is no lack of quality.

Emily Barting said that she really liked filming in Croatia. She said that she liked the people in Croatia and found them more open than people in Germany.
