    Hello Loup. My name is Mirek from Polish film company Sugar. What kind of landscape around the lake do you need? Should it be surrounded by mountains, or in the woods, or surrounded by the flat land? Or maybe the location around the lake is not important at all? Write me please or mail the script or the storyboard. I’ll try to find something suitable for you, but the weather is the most important, regarding the ice. Best regards, Mirek. Mail:, my mob.: +48 502 52 16 16.
