"When they go to the forest, it’s not scary or gory, because this is a family movie, but it’s completely monochromatic and the snow is not something that anybody ever reacts to. Nobody feels cold, they can walk around naked out here and it’s completely like in the middle of summer. That’s why everything had to be controlled; we didn’t want to shoot in any locations. They were telling me they were having a problem, we could shoot it cheaper outside, but I said no – I don’t know how to shoot it if a single shot is shot outside. So everything had to be designed and shot inside."
