Illusion Photo recently made a series of films for the virtual tour of filming locations of “Emil in Lönneberga” in Småland 1971-73. Together with the interviews at the different locations, flight footage was in the brief. The films are about 1min long and lots of footage didn’t make it to the final cut. So, we figured that a Best-Of-Film was in place and here it is.

Places we see in the film is the house were Emil lived and the lake were Emil learnt how to swim.

How to make Medicin

Today we are proud to say that the recording of the corporate film “How to make Medicine” has officially started. The opening exteria shots was done today, since the leafs are falling from the trees and the weather is simply bad.

This is the first time we use DJI Ronin in an advanced shooting, with remote focus and a video transmission to view the material LIVE. We also did a flight with the Phantom 2 and the whole scene took place on the roof of AstraZeneca.

The aim with this film is to show external visitors how medicin is getting made and how complex it is to make it. It will give you an understanding of whats going on inside the most advanced pharmaceutical factory in the world. Which is located in Södertälje.

The shoot will countiue for 12 shooting days spread out till December and the ambition of the quality of this film is as high as the man on this roof.

Films for QR Codes in Lönneberga

Emilkraften is an organisation who works to preserve the cultural inheritage of film locations of Emil i Lönneberga films produced in 1971-73.
