One of the locations of Iron Sky is the landing platform of the Schwarze Sonne. It’s a huge location – the place that’s located right in the middle of the Schwarze Sonne, under the huge dome where all of the ships stop by for repairs, loading or departures. You’ve seen it on Iron Sky Teaser 2 – that’s the place where the Nazis march to the ships and leave. In the studio, the set is not as interesting – actually, it’s only a flat, gray surface against green screen with some props littered around. The reason for this is that the platform is just so huge that there’d be no possibility to build a set that size anywhere, and we don’t need only but a portion of it for the actual action – everything else will be added with CG, matte painting and movie magic in the background.
Shooting the scenes on the Hangar felt like doing Dogville – no sets, only a studio floor with few props, some markings on the floor, a shining black car and Udo Kier.
