The production of an anniversary show is the biggest project of the anniversary year. This anniversary show is not intended to be an “ordinary” planetarium show (narrated only from the off, entirely or almost entirely CGI), but is intended to be particularly innovative through the involvement of actors, with a focus on good dialogues. To achieve this, professionals from the cinema film industry will be recruited.
Funding from the Zeiss Foundation was applied for in 2020, was awarded in 2021 and has now been made available to GDP, who will administer this project. The production work has been in preparation since autumn 2021, for which an executive producer should first be found, who will then plan, commission and control all subsequent production activities.
Currently, Fulldome producer and director Peter Popp has been contracted by GDP to refine the show concept and develop the screenplay. He was chosen for this role due to his outstanding expertise in both the traditional movie industry as well as in the fulldome / immersive arts realm.
By summer 2022, the production work is to begin, with the premiere scheduled to take place at the opening of the anniversary year, on October 21, 2023.
At a later time, there will be more news on this page on show posters, trailers, shipment, and more.
