The First Ever VR Film Shot in a War Zone with a 360° Camera
The American news media company RYOT recently sent its World Editor, Christian Stephen, to the war-ravaged streets of Aleppo, Syria. While there, he used a 360° camera to capture the world’s first virtual reality film of the inside of a war zone.
It’s an immersive short film that gives viewers a unique perspective into what the Syrian civil war has done to the country’s largest city.
RYOT says it will continue to work on using virtual reality technology to teleport its viewers around the world to real-life conflict zones and disaster areas.
