The team behind the Elton John film Rocketman reveals how they were able to turn soggy London into sunny, 1970s LA in this video from Vanity Fair.

The movie was based on real events in Elton John’s life, so they had to make sure that they got all of the locations spot on and era-accurate. They built the famous Troubadour club from scratch and created an entire street around it as well. They also made sure that the interior was perfect and was laid out exactly like the real club was.

One of the biggest challenges that they had on their hands was re-creating the iconic Mama Cass house where many wild parties took place. It’s pretty American-looking and not the sort of thing you’d find in the UK, so the team really had their work cut out with this one. They managed to faithfully re-create the pad and the end result is totally seamless. It’s impossible to tell that we’re in the UK, or even in 2020 for that matter.
