Volvo wins movie stunt industry award
Goteborg, Sweden – Volvo Cars has won the “Best Technical Achievement” award from the movie stunt industry for a giant airbag it built for stuntman Oliver Keller.
The Swiss-born Keller, now working in Hollywood, is ranked among the top 50 stuntmen in the world, and has appeared in such films as Pirates of the Caribbean and Spiderman. He contacted Volvo Cars Switzerland for support in his stunt school; Volvo supported the production of a giant airbag needed for soft landings, which it calls “the largest Volvo airbag ever.”
