Dyskinetic 360

WHAT IS THE CASE ABOUT

GoShort Film Festival in Nijmegen is all about film. One of the challenges was to provide a new type of experience that hasn’t been done before.

WHAT WAS THE EXPERIMENT?

With the upcoming 360o technology starting to become a trend in 2013/2014, the goal was to see whether or not an immersive experience can be provided by means of extending the viewing area to 220 degree angle. By means of 2 GoPro’s and manual ‘stitching’ of the images, we were able to create a ‘Virtual Reality’ movie.

RESULTS & INSIGHTS

Immersive scripted film turned out to be very interesting for future developments. Although low resolution and simple script could have lowered the experience, full immersion was obtained for some viewer. Gasping and even moving in real life, in line with scripted actions showed the reseatch team just how intreaging VR can be. The ambulance as experience decor and viewing position (horizontal on a brancard) controbitued to the offline-online-offline transition. Which turned out to be of high importance (best secundary learning of the project) for future (VR) projects.
