Brendan and Morot Discuss the Collaboration

For the creative collaborators, Morot and Brendan discuss their collaborations on how a racecar driver and ice bags kept the actor cool and calm during the intense and continuous shooting.

Four or Five Big bags per day

Adrien said, ‘It is those big bags you can get at gas stations when it comes to the cooling system for the suit. I believe that we need to went through four or five ice bags each day.

‘The Whale’, Film started in the Early Winter of 2021

Brendan Fraser talked about the film and said, ‘It began in the early winter of 2021. With a test, it took six hours to get into. I had to undergo the concrete experience of wearing the gear. I need to learn how to ambulate as Charlie’s mobility is limited.’
