As with most of Tuschinski's films, both Matthias Kirste and Alexander Tuschinski receive credit as cinematographer. Most scenes are filmed with two cameras, with each of them operating one camera. In the single-camera sequences, they work as in their previous collaborations: When Tuschinski acts, Kirste operates the camera - and when Tuschinski doesn't appear in the shot, he operates the camera himself.

The first scene in Gudrun's apartment was originally filmed to be about three times as long as the edit shown in the final film. During editing, director Alexander Tuschinski decided to cut it "very aggressively", to make the film move much quicker. Originally, the scene included more observations and theoretical discussions about the nature of revolutions, as well as some more visual gags. Several parts of the original, longer edit can be found in Timeless: The Making Of (2016) .

Frederick, portrayed by Maximilian Lorenz, is present in many parts of the story, sometimes interfering with it: He starts out as an annoyed Hip-Hop artist on the train with Jane and Arnold. Later, he appears with the right- and left-wing extremists, using a pseudonym. When Konstantin later smashes the car, Frederick drives by with some young people, spontaneously joining the smashing. Afterwards, he mixes with arts students at an arts performance, participating in a riot that develops. Ultimately, he is seen leading the police-officers raiding Konstantin's home. Alexander Tuschinski explains him as a central character in the film: Unlike Konstantin, who first starts detached from the politics of the day and then immediately becomes radically opposed to them, Frederick "dives into" whatever ideology and social setting presents itself. He switches fixed roles of society, still not able to escape them, as a parody of an opportunist who behaves in a way that seems opportune in each social setting, joining whatever activity each group he's surrounded by is doing, behaving in a way to blend in.
