During 1 year, we work with the Asterix park team, but also with the producers of the movie, so that the seats are fully optimized. “L’Atelier Animations” wrote the scenario with a column dedicated entirely to special effects and movements. We have created bespoke seats, but also tailor-made special effects like the menhir running through the movie theatre! Thanks to our design office, we were able to make a menhir appear in the wall of the room, after crossing it in 3D! “
