THE LAMB PRODUCTION TEAM conducted an exciting and extremely productive scouting missionto Morocco, which covered three cities (Casablanca, Quarzazate and Marrakech), over a dozen fascinating towns, and several thousand kilometres of some of the world’s most breathtaking landscapes. Visual interpretations of Jerusalem throughout the ages and in Jesus’ time in particular have often fallen prey to a lack of historical insight and integrity. Inevitably, this leads to insipid landscape upon which production design fails to achieve authenticity.
Characters and the stories that their lives tell struggle to come alive. Indeed, production design and the landscapes with which they are often in concert are crucial to a well-told motion picture story. The objective of the mission was to conduct a feasibility study of Morocco as a location for The Lamb Through careful planning and the assistance of a highly experienced Moroccan team, under the leadership of Fred Challa from Dreamaker Productions, every single location to authentically tell the story was identified during the scouting trip.
Morocco, in conjunction with South Africa, will allow for the highest standards in production design. The team is confident that a highly original and authentic look will be achieved through intelligent production spend and the best available expertise. Director Regardt Van den Bergh has also worked extensively in these specific regions and conditions on previous film productions.
