There was ALMOST a drone in the shot...
There was a drone in that overhead shot of the hunting party until the very last moment and it always made me nervous. Me to VFX: "You're not going to forget that. Right? RIGHT?" #QuarantineWatchParty #TheWitcher— Lauren S. Hissrich (@LHissrich) April 25, 2020

Shot in the spring with all the snow
Storyboards for this bridge scene. For real. Also this was shot in a parking lot at our studio in Budapest. Again, major props to our VFX team. #QuarantineWatchParty #TheWitcher pic.twitter.com/gDQC70njto— Lauren S. Hissrich (@LHissrich) April 25, 2020
