1. Snow Imported From Wales

    When snow was required for scenes in Die Another Day mother nature couldn’t be solely relied upon, instead the producers had to turn to paper.

    The fake snow was supplied by Excel Industries, a paper recycling company based in Ebbw Vale, Wales since 1980. Nick Thompson, Excel Industries managing director, explained that the company has to “source waste white paper and then grind it down into different sized particles, some large, some small” to create realistic looking snow.

    The paper based fake snow was mostly on indoor sets at Pinewood Studio’s, where Die Another Day was filmed.
