Hong Kong Unrest – the first news documentary for the Oculus Rift

In 2014, I travelled to Hong Kong to capture a news documentary of the pro-democracy protests in Hong Kong. The video, which was created for the media company ‘Immersiv.ly‘, was the first news documentary shot in 360 degree video. It launched on the same date as another company called ‘VRSE‘ release a 360 degree video of the Millions March protest in the states.

The video received worldwide press attention and was covered by Wired, The Independent, Financial Times & Gizmodo. In addition to filming and editing the video, I also created a minisite to share and promote the film.

Watch the final video on YouTube below or on the minisite at www.hongkongunrest.com.
