"How much of a logistical challenge was it, making this movie in Spain?
Gretchen McGowan: We were north and south, east and west - nearly everywhere except Barcelona. I've worked in some challenging locations including Jordan, Vietnam, and Costa Rica. But our production services company, the Madrid-based Calle Cruzada, helped to make these country-wide company moves seamless and they assembled an excellent crew for each location.
Stacey Smith: It was the most logistically challenging of Jim's films that I've worked on; they tend to be more contained, and less populated. We don't tend to go shoot in airports and train stations, nor do we usually have a helicopter, in a Jim Jarmusch film. [laughs] That was a surreal day.
GM: It was the only black helicopter in all of Spain; we had to fly it down from Basque country."
