Slovenian Volleyball players act as movie stars
CEV EuroVolley 2019 Men

Ljubljana, Slovenia, June 11, 2019. After four weeks of preparation and hard training, the members of the Volleyball team of Slovenia welcomed a more relaxing day in Kranjska Gora, where their focus changed from ball and net to cameras and microphones.

The head coach of Slovenia’s team, 54-year-old Italian Alberto Giuliani, who is currently supervising 16 players in the beautiful resort on the north of Slovenia, enjoyed a couple of hours with the guys, who spent the whole day in the company of make-up artists, cameramen, photographers, and movie directors.

Volleyball players changed into actors for a day to help the EuroVolley 2019 rights-holder for Slovenia, Pro Plus, owning the largest commercial programs POP TV and Kanal A, where they will broadcast the CEV Volleyball European Championship matches. Although the players had to repeat the video and audio recordings several times and realised that the work in front of cameras could sometimes be very hard, they agreed that this kind of activities during the preparation period are very welcome.
