One of the major parts of this film was to feature construction activities and the construction process itself. Thus, it involved not only daytime work, but also overnight filming. The idea was to picture the 24 hours process of building, monitoring & maintenance of a Nord Stream. This project was to film a challenging industrial site, involving Dutch and Russian cooperation.
