The producers of "Lord Livingstone 7000 Kandi" are planning to offer a new experience to Malayalis by promoting the Anil Radhakrishnan Menon directorial in space. Yes, you heard it right, in the outer space!
The space launch of "Lord Livingstone 7000 Kandi" trailer will take place in Munnar, Kerala, at 8am on 30 September.
The upcoming event, which is the first of its kind for any film, will see "LL7K" trailer being launched in space by attaching a GoPro camera to a weather balloon. The producers have got clearances from all departments including the aviation authorities.
"This is an experimental initiative and is done by the students of CUSAT. Usually, they send weather balloons to space for their academic needs. The trailer launch will be done in a similar space balloon which will have a small LED screen, company's logo and the miniature models of characters," Global United Media executive producer Vivek Thomas Varghese told The New Indian Express.
The balloon will reportedly burst three hours after entering space and later the launchpad will fall back into the atmosphere.
"LL7K" producers Global United Media, who were also the Kerala distributors of "Baahubali – The Beginning", had earlier achieved the Guinness World Record for the world's largest poster.
"Lord Livingstone 7000 Kandi", which has eight key characters, is the debut venture of Global United Media in Malayalam. These characters are played by Kunchacko Boban, Reenu Mathews, Sunny Wayne, Nedumudi Venu, Chemban Vinod, Sudheer Karamna, Jacob Gregory and Bharat Niwas.
