On Wednesday morning it is quiet in Obertilliach. “There’s not much going on,” is heard from the community. There is no trace of nervousness. Nevertheless – production assistant is eagerly working on the final preparations.

They will film also in the center of Obertilliach, but there is not so much snow at the moment, which is not usual in the high mountain village, but the snow cannons do a good job.

Currently, there is sunny in the district of Lienz, but in the coming days, the weather is about to change. “Anyway, it would be desirable to have bad weather and snow for some scenes,” revealed the insider to tt.com.

What exactly will happen in Obertilliach, should remain a closely guarded secret. As the TT already reported, all participants had to sign a confidentiality agreement. Breaking the contract will have heavy consequences. Even mobiles phones will be removed from the extras, so nothing will leak outside.
