2005. Sauna. Tampere, Finland. We had just finished another one of the endless shootings of Star Wreck: In the Pirkinning. Jarmo had came up with the idea, and spilt it out – how about making a film about Nazis in the Dark Side of the Moon. There was laughter.
It didn’t feel very probable at the moment.
2010. My room. Frankfurt, Germany. Tomorrow, the shootings of Iron Sky begin. I’m nervous. Yet, thinking about the last five years, the painstakingly complicated process of building the dream with wonderful teams from Finland, Germany and Australia, does bring great memories. It’s been hard, but it’s been damn rewarding, and now – finally – the day we’ve been waiting for the last 5 years, the beginning of the actual shootings, is just around the corner.
It feels very real now.
It’ll be a blast. Thank you all for being around. We’ll make a film which you’ll love.
Wish us luck.
