‘National Park 360’ is a revolutionary alpine nature film experience screening in the state-of-the-art 360-degree panorama theater at the Hohe Tauern National Park Center in Mittersill, Austria.
The film transports viewers to places that only a few mountaineers and nature enthusiasts encounter while climbing Austria’s highest mountain – the Grossglockner.
This spectacular 360° journey travels from the valleys, rivers and alpine lakes, through forests, and past waterfalls and gorges to the glaciers. It enables the audience to witness the forces of nature and the changing seasons and appreciate nature’s eternal struggle for survival. At the summit they experience stunning 360° panoramas and magical moments of the Hohe Tauern’s mountain wilderness.
New cutting-edge camera and sound technology were developed in order to make the film, which took over two years to complete.
The ‘Making of the National Park’ exhibit is located on the lower level of the 360° theater, where, among other things, the film ‘Behind National Park 360‘ plays on a 70″ monitor. The beautifully shot film unveils how the ‘National Park 360’ film was created and takes the viewer on a groundbreaking cinematic and technological journey, highlighting the innovative camera and theater design as well as the challenges of filming on location and the post-production process.
