The Audience Enwrapped: Prototyping 360 Video as an Immersive Story Form 

The Audience Enwrapped: Prototyping 360 Video as an Immersive Story Form  | Documentary Evolution | Scoop.it

"There is a special kind of magic that takes place when viewing video, akin to experiencing an oneiric, lucid dream. Instantaneously shifting the camera view from one vantage to another erases the tyranny of distance and reveals previously impossible perspectives. The camera placement and editor’s cut provide the magic that hacks the brain. It is a mental teleportation trick. The downside is that as the story progresses, the mind has little time to dwell and revel in the empty space that creativity craves and words provide. The director is always in control, not the audience. Videos can be visually splendid, but pale in comparison to what you are capable of conjuring with your own amazing, vivid imagination.

But how does it feel to inhabit someone else’s mind while inhabiting a video? Can 360 video compete with the immersion of words by masquerading as real life?"

excerpt:

“It’s become a verb in our newsroom,” a New York Times graphics producer tells me. “People are now saying, ‘can we snowfall this story?’”

Snow Fall: The Avalanche at Tunnel Creek has become a watershed in multimedia journalism. The story by John Branch recently won a Pulitzer prize in feature writing, and as noted by the Pulitzer website it was “a project enhanced by its deft integration of multimedia elements.”

by Jeremy Rue
