The Source Magazine caught up with the cast at a press conference and they shared highlights from shooting the film.
Q: Tell us a about the actual shooting process for the movie.
Browning: I think, honestly, to me shooting some of the second half of the film…I mean all of the ash and the wind and the sweat and the fire was pretty horrendous. We did have a cast that got along really well so it was nice that we were able to step away from the drama or sort of like…you know, with sort of grey skin, dropping with sweat, looking disgusting and we were able to kind of have a laugh together and it was really nice. I think it was a good bunch of people to go through hell with.
Anderson: It was a delight, the actors were all very, very happy.
