They began to work on pre-production and Imaginaerum Stobe Harju wrote a first draft of the screenplay of 70 pages, based on the original ideas of Tuomas Holopainen. It was decided that instead of making a separate set of clips, rather they had to create an entire movie with a more developed story.
About Tuomas Holopainen explained: "I wanted to convey a positive message and the idea of ​​carpe diem. The film is about the joy of being alive and the beauty of the world. ".
