However, in order to create a massive mansion, the design team of 15 people had to work for a month to erect more thatched roofs, partitions, arrange more furniture, spread sand all over the available cement. of the yard, relocate the existing decorations of the farm, build 1 more house from the resort’s warehouse and plant flowers.
The process of building Red Flower Camp was very difficult because it was interrupted during the stressful epidemic.

Keeping the red flower beds “perfect” is also an interesting memory. The 100-person film crew with a tight schedule and pressure to ensure the production schedule made the speed of work on the set pushed up very high. The “speedy steps” of the engine crew, the light team, led to the anxiety of the design team. The fragile flower beds that have not been filmed are fenced and strictly protected by members of the production team and the field team.
The scenes in the deep forest with high waterfall also brought many new experiences for the film crew. There are scenes at the majestic waterfall but still unspoiled, even the path is just enough for one person to pass. To be able to “light up” for the crew to transport equipment and work safely, hundreds of glow sticks were requisitioned and scattered all over dangerous places in the forest and night waterfall scenes. Of course, the work of collecting and cleaning up the site after that is done very strictly to protect the environment and have the opportunity to reuse.
