The penguins have landed in RAK


I hope I grabbed your attention with that!

It’s true and they are all in Iceland…the one in RAK.

Now that I have sufficiently confused you let me explain. Iceland is the largest water theme park in the region which opened to the public recently in Ras Al Khaimah. It is just the first phase of a much larger park and resort project being planned by WOW RAK.

The Moviemedia crew had a good preview of the project since we were commissioned to do the introductory promo video which was shown at the inaugural ceremony of Iceland. Our crew had just six days to complete the video. Can we shoot, edit and get the promo ready for the launch? It was a challenge.

The park was in the final stages of construction spread over 120 acres of land.

Racing to cover all the key elements of the huge park even as workers were putting the final touches needed an intricate choreography of men, machines and time.

Needless to say, we met the deadline and despite the frenetic pace the quality of the production was not compromised. What made it possible was that our crew went the extra mile as we always do. Our team received the full support of the Iceland staff – some of whom starred in the film – as well as of the top management of WOW RAK who rolled up their sleeves and worked alongside.

We have a feeling that the park will be a popular jaunt for families. We posted our video on YouTube and it has already attracted a huge number of viewers.
