The Wacken Festival
Every year, for three days in August, a sleepy farming village in the middle of the Northern German countryside becomes the epicenter of the metal universe called Wacken Open Air. Almost 75,000 metal heads from around the globe invade the Wacken Open Air to pay homage to the greatest bands of the international metal scene. The first Wacken Open Air in 1990 attracted less than 800 attendees but since then it has grown every year. Now it is the biggest open air festival of its kind. Tickets are sold out within days – long before all of the participating bands are announced.
The "Wacken 3D" Movie
Norbert Heitker, Tomas Erhart and their team covered this year’s complete Wacken Open Air around the clock, using 18 state of the art 3D cameras.
Director Nobert Heitker’s feature doc, shot by Producer and Director of Photography Tomas Erhart in true stereoscopic 3D will give audiences a chance to experience Wacken – the fans, the music, the unique atmosphere – in the most intimate way.
Wacken 3D was shot from July 22 to August 5, 2013 with an impressive stack of technical equipment, including cranes, trucks, and 18 3D rigs - most of them fitted with RED cameras.
For the first time ever the audience in front of their 3D screens will not only get the live – perspective of a fan. WACKEN 3D will make them feel like rock stars, performing in front of 80.000 enthusiatic fans and "metalheads".
