Filming took place in the Czech Republic at Barrandov Studios from March 26 to May 2012. Bier took more than 18 months to complete the film, but there were no re-shoots or problems in post-production. Bier also had to take time away to promote Love Is All You Need. Serena is scheduled to be released in April 2014.
