    Filming events in 360

    We have all seen events covered by photographers and camera operators but how many events have we seen covered with 360 degree videos?

    A continued Interest in 360 Videos

    A few weeks ago I was at the Geneva International Film Festival in Geneva as a volunteer so I got to play and experience new 360 experiences and some of these were interested because we could move around in space whilst others were interesting because of their length. A few years ago people thought that […]

  • Thoughts on the Oculus Quest

    The World VR Forum – Year 2 – The Conferences

    I was a volunteer at the World VR Forum again this year. I was in the conference room providing speakers with microphones before they went up on stage.

  • A 360° cooking Show would be interesting to watch.

    For a few weeks now I have been thinking about how you could make a 360° cooking show. For this video I would like to be able to see the process from an angle where I see the person cooking. I would also like to see all of the ingredients and the preparation of various […]

  • A 360 Video of planes landing – An experiment

    A 360 Video of planes landing – An experiment

    I prepared a 360 Video of planes landing at Geneva International Airport yesterday afternoon. Watching planes land, especially when you’re right underneath them just as they’re about to touch down is a lot of fun. You see the lights in the distance and slowly those lights approach. There is a point after which everything speeds up […]

I started playing Ingress again, but only a few minutes here and there. As I play I see new faces and new people at Ingress […]
