360° Video: Bloopers

  • 360° Video: Bloopers

Happy New Year! Seems like a good time to look back on 2017 with a little bit of humor, so here’s a short clip to make you smile.

If there’s one thing you learn when you start shooting 360° videos, it’s that the camera sees everything. The fine, fun folks at the New York Times who’ve been producing their Daily 360 series just put together a reel of some of their own bloopers related to trying to hide from the camera, or things captured when it’s been left unattended. We use the same camera that they do and I’ve got my own share of shots of me running away from the camera, or thinking I’m hidden by a tree when I’m not completely.

Playback of 360° videos is most immersive if you have some form of a Google Cardboard viewer and can open the video in the YouTube app on your smartphone (email me if you don’t have a viewer and I will send you one). You can still have a lot of fun without one though by making the video full-screen in your Chrome browser and clicking and dragging with your mouse to explore.

Did we spark any ideas about how to involve 360 in your business? Reach out and we’d love to talk with you about it!
