Five days were allotted to complete four films, shot in 35mm with a lot of tracking vehicles and R1 rigs. For the interior shots, the company had to remove the roof of one of the cars in order to place the camera inside. The locations on this project varied from country roads across the mountains to the exclusive Ciudad de las Artes y las Ciencias buildings, designed by world-renowned architect Calatrava.
