‘Moonfall’ trivia

Moonfall was filmed in Beaconsfield, Montreal in 2020, according to IMDB. One interesting tidbit is that Harald Kloser “recorded the soundtrack at Synchron Stage, a stage in the area of the former movie studios Rosenhügel, in Vienna, Austria, during September 2021. The instruments, such as the strings, have been recorded separately for more flexibility during the post production of the movie.”
