curiously, the release says that “the need for new solutions was dictated by the tight schedule of the Director, who by virtue of employment could not always be present on set in the pavilion”. However, the new technology was in demand in the current situation related to the coronavirus. Perhaps other Directors will move to it, and film companies will not stop shooting, and those who have already stopped, will resume them.

Here is what says about this Timur Bekmambetov:

“We’re making a film about the war, and according to the news report, too, almost military reports in connection with the coronavirus – the curfew, the food shortages, panic among the population, etc. If during the great Patriotic war continued to make movies, and especially now is not the time to despair. We are looking for new ways to continue to make movies. Come to the aid of new technologies and creative approach. Because of this, you can continue to withdraw and not to expose to risks for the health of the crew”.

Recall that the “FAA. Escape from hell” will be released in 2021 in two formats: horizontal for cinemas and vertical for viewing on smartphones. The co-producers tape – Studio Bazelevs, Voenfilm and mobile operator MTS. A film about the heroism of Mikhail devyataeva will be the first project of the new platform, MTS Media with mobile content in a vertical format.
