Theodora The Great is a Colorado, USA production.
The plan is to shoot 85% of the film on location in and around Colorado using tradition film stock. Part of the plan is to reconstruct 6th Century Constantinople in a sizeable warehouse location where indoor shooting will occur.
Open and suitable plains will be sought for on location filming of a number of required battle scenes. Finally, up to 15% of the shooting is hoped to be on location in Turkey, Istanbul to add historical authenticity to certain select scenes.
