360 Documentary “Reflections” – Web Version

Demo of 360 Documentary – Reflections

This is a low-bandwidth, low-resolution demo of the 360 documentary I completed for Critique 4.  The original version was designed to be viewed offline and provides much higher resolution for all of the contained media files.  The technique could easily be adapted for various types of non-linear documentaries, historical, educational, commercial or narrative purposes.

I was initially inspired to create the documentary because I became interested in the things we choose to surround ourselves with in our homes, and what memories they may trigger.  I find people’s histories and stories fascinating — everyone has a story to tell.  I’d rather spend time with real people and get to know their stories than creating fictional pieces.  It was a privilege to be allowed a glimpse into Val’s history, and we were welcomed into her home for filming.  Many thanks to Val Sanford and Holly Laverick for helping me create this proof of concept.

This demo requires Adobe Flash and will not work on mobile devices.
