The art of movie making
Voletarium and the code name Project V
Voletarium is the new and visionary attraction in the German themed area at Europa-Park. The true name was kept a secret at first that’s why ’Project V‘ was used as a code name for ’Voletarium’.
„Location, location, location“

Previs – making the movie before the movie
Previs means pre-visualization, a process used to digitally make a demo of the film to see what works and what doesn’t.

“Mack Media, the media division of Europa Park, is the producer of the film, assuring that everything is on time and budget.”
