Collecting surprisingly heavy windows 1Km up the road on a dark December night using a trolley is possible but will get you strange looks. Armenian builders proved useful in loading the other pair of 120cm windows into the van's 120cm loading bay.
Shopping for props, the arrival of the 1910's Samovar, finding nice cloth for Tone to design Anna's skirt, Tomas giving some props a good old antiquing and strangely sporting a sky diving suit to paint in. Spending lonely nights going emulsion-crazy in painting the set several times, the nice ice SFX and the set ready to shoot in.
