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 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 enable the production, GDP applied for funding from different foundations and possible supporters since 2020, and was awarded a major funding contribution by the Zeiss foundation in 2021. With this funding, the show project is technically administered by GDP. The production work has been in preparation since autumn 2021.
Fulldome producer and film industry professional 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, a draft script was created by Peter Popp, and production work is to begin in fall 2022.
The premiere of the show is 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.
